Vermont Tech has launched a new online bootcamp series geared towards helping students prepare for lucrative and fulfilling careers in the information technology (IT) industry. The six-month, immersive training programs provide students with fast access to in-demand and emerging tech jobs.
Students can enroll in comprehensive bootcamps covering artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), cybersecurity, and full stack web development to attain the necessary skills and knowledge to apply for their dream IT job opportunities. Each bootcamp features highly interactive training sessions led by industry experts, and hands-on exercises based on real-life applications in a wide range of relevant IT specialties.
Focus is put on enabling aspiring and existing IT professionals to conveniently access the training needed to fill high-need technical skills gaps in the industry. Each bootcamp helps participants prepare to stand out to employers through hands-on exercises and projects and a final capstone project so they can practice the skills needed to perform their job in the real world. Some bootcamps also provide participants with a completion certificate that can be used to attest their skills and knowledge—while others also leave them thoroughly prepared for relevant certification exams.
Vermont Tech’s bootcamps are the new addition to an expanding catalog of more than 1,000 online trainings through interactive, self-paced training, participants have the flexibility to learn at their convenience, while instructor-facilitated coaching sessions provide the structure and support they need to fulfill their career goals.
The self-paced training is offered entirely online and requires 15 to 25 hours per week to complete the curriculum. A dedicated instructor facilitates these bootcamp trainings and paces learners, so participants have a good balance between the flexibility of self-paced learning and the structure of instructor-led classes.
Participants also go through online coaching sessions, where they receive advice and feedback from expert instructors who are leaders in their respective fields. This kind of mentorship helps to strengthen their knowledge in the subject and provides them with a better sense of direction for a career in IT.
