St. Louis, MO:​ April 22, 2020, Claim Academy, a coding bootcamp based in St. Louis announced that it will be offering two free online coding courses, valued at $2,000 per person, to veterans, active duty military and their spouses.

These free coding classes will cover the key elements of Java, and teach the student how to independently write a few lines of code. This class is not only a great way to gain a basic knowledge of this program, but it is also the first step in gaining acceptance into the esteemed coding bootcamp. Even though Claim Academy has currently moved to an online hybrid version of classes, all of the programs are approved for the G​ I Bill®​. Other qualifying students may be able to use VET TEC to help fund their education.

Claim Academy has long been an advocate of placing transitioning members of the military into exciting tech careers. With unemployment in the United States reaching a shocking 22 million people, the coding bootcamp wants to arm our heroes with skills that will help them land a job during this uncertain time.

Burning Glass researchers found that jobs that require coding skills pay up to $22,000 per year more, on average”. Not only are software developers always in high demand, but they also earn more for possessing programming knowledge.
