Who is The Fortress Academy?
The Fortress Academy is Central Pennsylvania's FIRST and ONLY licensed computer coding bootcamp. The demand for new technical talent has increased at such a rapid rate that traditional educational models have had a hard time adapting.
The Fortress Academy is a licensed higher education institution that offers accelerated (program length is 12 weeks), intensive, code training programs. Our training courses cover multiple languages and frameworks with the aim of creating at minimum “Junior Level” computer programmers for a variety of positions or advancing technical skills of students with a CS or Engineering Degree.
Our graduates will be ready to dive into any project or team, adding immediate value as a Junior Level Programmer. Many projects require the basics of programming with a growth or “learn to learn” mindset rather than the traditional Computer Science or Engineering Degree. With more and more companies building their own in house technology the need for a middle layer of technology worker is emerging. Rather than looking for a “Blue Collar” employee, companies are looking for a “Code Collared” worker.
Code schools have been gaining traction for one simple reason…they work. The gap in the current job market is huge and continuing to grow. Programs like The Fortress Academy Computer Programming Diploma can serve as a catalyst for not only local business but as an opportunity for more minorities, woman and veterans to enter the field of STEM as a career.
