Code Platoon

Code Platoon is a 501(c)3 non-profit that helps veterans and military spouses transition into the civilian workforce by providing technical training and career placement. For 14 weeks the students are immersed in learning the full web development stack, including Python (or Ruby), Django (or Rails), JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. No previous programming skills are required. After completing the program the veteran or military spouse will be hireable as a junior full-stack web developer and eligible for an internship.  

 

The Code Platoon mission is to provide U.S. veterans with an affordable and
challenging educational experience which will equip them with skills necessary to
begin a career in software development in the fraction of the time as a normal 2 or 4
year degree. This allows graduates of Code Platoon to begin the transition to civilian
life faster while commanding impressive salaries upon entering the workforce. 

 

All veterans and military spouses are eligible to apply for generous scholarships, which historically have covered up to 80% of tuition, and sometimes more. Code Platoon's In-Person Program is approved for the GI Bill® which can be used to cover remaining tuition, living and other expenses. Additionally, our Live Remote and In Person programs are both listed as VET TEC training providers.
