Bowling Green, Q.
The Commonwealth Coders is a 16-week training course that prepares participants for a career as a junior web developer. The program was initially piloted between Cumberlands and the South Central Workforce Development Boards in 23 counties. It will now debut between four workforce boards representing 48 counties.
Lindsay Brown, economic recovery coordinator for the South Central Kentucky Workforce Development Board, said the program is ideal for people from all walks of life, including recent high school graduates, living at home with parents, second shift employees, retirees, Ex-servicemen, working in hospitality or retail industry, or want to learn a new skill. “During our original pilot program, we were able to serve the age group between 18 and 65. I was very proud of those numbers,” Brown said. “You are coming out of this June 16 program as a junior web developer. Very interesting content, the curriculum you are covering. The program will start on August 11.
A career in web development offers many opportunities in remote work, office work, post-secondary education, and relocation options, Brown said. “You can work for a company on the West Coast, but you’re working here in your home in Warren or Baron County, or even in different areas. It’s definitely moving into the future.
“I encourage everyone to take a leap of faith and see where your next step goes,” Brown said.
