Attention! Claim Academy Reporting For Duty. Claim Academy Now Approved to Accept Veterans’ Education Benefits!
It’s been another great week at Claim Academy, the Midwest’s premier coding boot camp. We have big things happening, and we’re excited to share some of the big news right here with you, our faithful readers.
As many of you already know, our Founder, and Chief Idea Officer, Ola Ayeni, and several of our current Java software developer students, were featured in an article in the business section of the Sunday edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Ola revealed a big surprise in that article–Claim Academy recently received the approval of The Veterans Education and Training Section for the GI Bill®*. The GI Bill®* is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs*. You can find more information about the education benefits offered by the VA at the official U.S. government web site at https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill*
Ola Ayeni, our fearless leader, recently said in a press statement: “America’s veterans and their family members have earned these great benefits and we want to help our country’s vets transition from the military and into great, high-paying jobs in software development. Demand for skilled programmers–the kind you’ll find right here at Claim Academy, is huge and projected to grow.” In fact, according to the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, “Employment of software developers is projected to grow 24 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Software developers will be needed to respond to an increased demand for computer software. Almost a million programming jobs in the US went unfilled last year**. Claim Academy wants to meet this demand and fill these jobs with qualified, skilled coders, including our nation’s veterans.
In March 2019, Code Academy, ranked one “One of the Best Coding Bootcamps in 2019 & 2018” by SwitchUp *** and Rated as “One of the Best Coding Bootcamps in 2017″ by Course Report,**** was approved by The Veterans Education and Training Section, to accept and train veterans by allowing them to use their GI Bill®* benefits to cover the costs of tuition and more.
Claim Academy’s accelerated 9 or 12-week courses in Full Stack Java and C#/.Net programming are great programs for veterans that don’t want to spend four years or more pursuing a traditional degree and worrying about finding a job upon graduation. Some Claim Academy students receive job offers before they even graduate!
Claim Academy firmly believes in putting all of our students first. We are committed to helping our veterans utilize their education benefits, and train them for the in-demand jobs in software development. Moreover, Claim Academy helps fill Missouri’s programming talent pipeline and helps America grow economically.
The Veterans Education and Training Section is the State Approving Agency responsible for approving GI Bill®* Programs in Missouri for veterans and other eligible individuals. To learn more, visit: https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill/apply.asp
