Bellarmine University is offering new virtual tech bootcamps
that prepare learners for careers in high-demand technology fields.
The program is designed for adult learners looking to upskill or reskill. Classes meet once a week for a virtual 1.5-hour lecture, and continue with self-paced work throughout the week. The programs include a dedicated career services team that offers
one-on-one mentoring, resume help, portfolio building and more. The programs are offered through a collaboration with Promineo Tech, an education-as-a-service provider.
“These affordable and accessible programs provide opportunities that align with market-driven, high-demand career fields," said Abigail Walsh, Director of Bellarmine's Center for Community & Professional Education. "Our goal is to equip participants
with tools that will draw the attention of prospective employers and help them secure a job.”
Walsh noted that the bootcamps align with the university's new strategic vision, Bellarmine Forward, designed to ensure that all students are career ready when completing their studies.
“The rapid economic shift of recent years has created tremendous demand among those who want to reskill,” said Nick Suwyn, founder of Promineo Tech. “These bootcamps are a great opportunity to enhance workforce acceleration within Kentucky,
specifically in the increasingly in-demand field of technology. We’re excited to work with Bellarmine University to accomplish this.”
The bootcamps offered include Front End Software Development (18 weeks), Back End Development (18 weeks), Big Data Engineering (26 weeks) and Digital Marketing (16 weeks). The courses operate in a fully remote setting utilizing an online learning management
system and Zoom.
Upon successful completion of the program, students have the tools they need to apply to entry level jobs within the field.
