For Students

In the classroom and on the job training!

Want to learn how to code? Consider an application developer apprenticeship! NewBoCo can sponsor an apprenticeship with a local Eastern Iowa company where you can work and attend DeltaV Code School as a Related Training Instruction provider. Get started in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with beginner-level courses, or take your training to the next level with intermediate courses! The courses themselves are bootcamp style classes that you can complete in 20 weeks or less depending on your level of previous coding experience. These application developer apprenticeships are competency based and not time based, so moving through the apprenticeship can happen at your individual pace. DeltaV and Code Fellows are known for its rigorous, fast-moving, hands-on curriculum and high job-placement rates for graduates. If that sounds like something you can get on board with, then we want to hear from you! Join our passionate, high-energy, positive community to meet likeminded people, learn great code, and make a difference in your community.

• No previous coding experience necessary!
• Complete the full program in 20 weeks of instruction.
• Apprenticeship is competency based, not time based.
• 100% of reporting graduates to date have been placed in jobs.
• Average annual starting salary for our graduates has been $58,600.

For Companies

NewBoCo can sponsor your Apprenticeship Program!

The Registered Apprenticeship system provides opportunity for workers seeking high-skilled, high-paying jobs and for employers seeking to build a qualified workforce. Registered Apprenticeship is an employer-driven model, combining on-the-job learning with related classroom instruction and allows the Registered Apprentice to earn a paycheck from day one. Registered Apprenticeship Programs are a proven solution for recruiting, training and retaining world-class talent in Iowa. Since Iowa is experiencing a talent gap with an aging workforce of highly-skilled and experienced workers, this program has the ability to attract a new and more diverse talent pool, close the gap in workers’ skills, and awards an industry credential issued by the Department of Labor upon completion of the program.

New industries are offering opportunities including: information technology, financial services, healthcare, transportation, energy, advanced manufacturing, and hospitality. A Registered Apprenticeship is an appropriate option for all job seekers including women, minorities, youth, people with disabilities, and veterans.

• Effective way to hire hard-to-recruit tech talent.
• Attract a more diverse talent pool.
• DeltaV Code School offers your Apprentice relevant and real world developer skills.
• As the sponsor, NewBoCo takes care of the registration paperwork with the Department of Labor.
• Employers pay a regular wage or stipend while the Apprentice attends DeltaV and/or covers their tuition.
• Apprentices are ready to join your team in as few as 20 weeks.
