How to Apply

Each step of the Code Platoon application process is a way for us to get to know you better, and for you to decide if this program is the right fit for your goals. We want individuals who are dedicated to completing the program. All steps of the application process must be completed to be considered.

Step 1: Introduce Yourself ( This should take 5 – 10 Minutes)

We will ask for some basic information about yourself and service. Complete and submit the online form to get started.

Step 2: Online Tutorials (40 to 70 hours). Due February 28th.

As soon as you submit the Form in Step 1, you will receive instructions on completing a portion of Free Code Camp, which is an online coding tutorial. You can also follow this link. You don’t need ANY previous experience programming — this tutorial is intended to show you a little bit of what you will be learning at Code Platoon.

Step 3: Personal Questionnaire (2 to 10 hours). Due March 1st.

When you have finished Step 2, we will send you a questionnaire to give us a chance to learn a little more about you. You can also follow this link.
