Code/IT Academy

Are you looking for a new career in an in-demand field, with higher wages, and growth potential? Code/IT Academy is a free upskilling program for new economy jobs in web development. Take a step toward a brighter future! There’s no cost and no risk. Invest just 10 weeks in Code/IT’s free training to start making a life change. 

The summer 2022 program will focus on web development. No previous experience in web development or coding is needed. You’ll gain a basic understanding of essential web development skills and business practices and learn to build websites using HTML and CSS, following the principles of “mobile first” and responsive web design. (Not sure what that means? No worries, that’s what this class is for!)

Class meets downtown at The Mill two nights each week, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:45-7:15 pm. Ivy Tech Bloomington faculty lead the classes, and you’ll also meet regularly one-on-one with career coaches from Ivy Tech’s Career Coaching and Employer Connections to ensure your success. Participants will receive a part-time membership at The Mill, giving you a gorgeous workspace with fast wifi and a friendly community to support and inspire you.

Get a taste of a new career, acquire in-demand skills, and gain confidence in your ability to build a new future for yourself!
