Tech Coding

Patterson Adult School has partnered with Bay Valley Tech to offer a FREE software development training program that helps adult students learn new programming skills through flexible online courses and peer-based mentoring. Bay Valley Tech also provides a supportive, fun environment for new students learning to code as well as opportunities for students to network with local software professionals and employers. Corporate partners encourage their employees to volunteer as mentors at the code academy and often hire top students from the program.


This will consist of approximately 10-20 hours a week for a total of 7-14 months depending on the amount of hours put in each week. The total number of hours that need to be completed for the course is 560 hours.
