Demand for programming or coding skills is growing, and not just for IT jobs. A report by Burning Glass, a job market analytics firm, found that there were as many as 7 million job openings in 2015 in occupations that required coding skills. According to the report, programming jobs overall are growing 12% faster than the market average.
And not only that: coding jobs are well-paid. Half of jobs in the top income quartile (>$57,000 per year) are in occupations which commonly require coding skills from job applicants.
The UFV Coding Bridging program can help you enhance your coding skills and launch a coding-related career in the technology sector. The 5-week program will be held at the Chilliwack Campus – Canada Education Park starting May 2018. Application deadline is February 1, 2018. The $100 tuition only applies to students accepted into the program.
Funded by the Ministry of Advanced Education, the Coding Bridging program fills the gap by providing short-term training to address the growing demand for coding skills. This funding is aligned with the BC Skills for Jobs Blueprint and the #BCTECHStrategy.
