Highly-Qualified Junior Web Developers
Academy Pittsburgh provides condensed technical training that prepares adult learners for a career in web development. Learners come from eclectic backgrounds, often from complementary professions, and frequently represent demographic groups of people traditionally underrepresented in the tech sector. As participants transition out of our 12 week bootcamps they become ideal candidates for apprenticeships or internships within partner organizations.
Academy PGH Graduates have nearly 400 hours of hands on training delivered by industry professionals.
