This week, in honor of Veterans Day, we’ve celebrated three veterans who’ve gone through our coding bootcamp and transformed their lives in the process. There are many, many more success stories that we could tell — in the last few years alone nearly 100 veterans have used their GI Bill benefits to gain coding skills via our 14-week program.
It’s easy to see why. Veterans are dedicated, hard-working, and creative individuals who have a slew of competing opportunities as they transition to civilian life. Using GI Bill benefits to gain coding skills, veterans are setting themselves up for lucrative and versatile career paths. Plus, they’ve already completed one bootcamp during their initial military training – what’s one more?
Just like the military: Teamwork at our bootcamps is a central pillar of our program.The camaraderie-focused learning environment at Coding Dojo has been a natural fit for veterans.
Best of all, it’s extremely easy for veterans to enroll in our bootcamp using your GI Bill benefits. All we need is a valid Certificate of Eligibility (COE), then you can enroll almost immediately for any upcoming cohort.
Your COE can be easily obtained by logging into your online e-benefits portal and taking a screenshot of your entitlement information. If you don’t have an active COE, please call the Education Call Center at 1-888-442-4551 to get the process started.
Currently, only our Bellevue campus is allowed to accept GI Bill benefits. But, we’re actively working with the Veterans Association so we can accept GI Bill benefits, as well as the newly-created VET TEC program, at additional campuses. We hope to have updates on this front very soon, so stay tuned!
