The City of Shreveport and Tech Talent South are excited to announce our partnership on a free, remote technical training program [CODESHV] for Shreveport, LA residents!
The program will take place beginning on November 16 - March 18, Monday through Friday, from 8 am - 5 pm CST. Participants will learn the foundations of front-end and back-end software development -- how to make websites, mobile apps, and the digital systems upon which businesses rely. You can preview the course syllabus here
The ultimate goal of the program is to create a workforce more capable of remote work, enable digital startups to take root in Shreveport, and make it easier for technology-centric companies to take advantage of the City's pro-business environment.
Recruitment specialists will help prepare graduates to apply and compete for technical and tech-adjacent roles. Program graduates can be found in roles such as Software Engineer, Business Analyst, Application Developer, Quality Assurance, Salesforce Administrator, Java Developer, and more.
Using federal funds made available through the Department of Treasury funded CARES Act, the City of Charlotte will cover the cost of tuition for the entire class of participants. Charlotte residents of all ages and backgrounds who were financially impacted by COVID-19 are invited to apply, especially workers who were laid off due to the pandemic. The application is now live and accessible at https://codeshv.com/.
Class is scheduled to begin November 16th. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply immediately.
