Coley and Codeup Partners to turn Military Veterans into Software Engineers

(San Antonio, TX – May 27, 2015) –The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) has awarded a contract to Coley & Associates, Inc. and its partner, Codeup, to provide Information Technology training through an accelerated learning program for Veterans and transitioning Servicemembers.

The VA, in alignment with the White House’s Skills and Demand-Driven Training Initiative has identified accelerated learning programs (ALP) as an effective alternative to traditional learning methods for assisting Veterans and Servicemembers transitioning from the military  with learning new skills and quickly finding employment in the information technology (IT) market.

With this contract award, the Coley/Codeup team will work with the VA to dramatically accelerate the employment and earning power of Veterans and transitioning Servicemembers. The Coley/Codeup team will provide a Bootcamp-style accelerated learning program for up to 200 students per year with each qualifying student’s tuition fully paid for by the VA.

The Bootcamp has a successful track record of placing 94% of graduates; including many who started the program with no background or experience in software development or engineering IT career fields.

“We are excited to partner with Codeup and be able to provide those who served our country with an opportunity that will help them find meaningful employment at good pay levels. This is a win-win for Military Veterans and the San Antonio Technology community” said Jack Coley, CEO.
