Are you a Veteran who is unemployed due to the Covid-19 pandemic? Are you interested in attending a training program like Code Platoon to pursue a new career in software engineering? You may qualify for a VA program launched last month, covering retraining costs for more than 200 high-demand careers.
The Department of Veterans Affairs has launched the Veteran Rapid Retraining Assistance Program (VRRAP) as part of its continued effort to support Veterans seeking retraining and economic opportunities in response to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
VRRAP covers education and training programs approved under the GI Bill and Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VET TEC) that lead to high-demand jobs. These include associate degrees, non-college degrees, and certificate programs.

MILITARY SPOUSES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR SCHOLARSHIPS
The Code Platoon mission is to support US military Veterans and Service Members, and this includes building up and supporting military spouses. Our first military spouse graduated from Code Platoon on April 18, 2019.
Did you know that Code Platoon offers full scholarships for military spouses for each of our cohorts?
Python can be used for web development as well as artificial intelligence, data science, machine learning, scripting, automation, and cybersecurity. This wider variety of applications allows our graduates to find the type of coding job that best suits them.
One reason why I chose to apply for Code Platoon is because it’s exclusively for veterans. I feel that being around people from a similar background, who are working towards the same goals, will prove more beneficial to the process.
Deja B., Delta Platoon, U.S. Navy Software Engineer, DRW
The dedication required to complete this intensive program is absolutely worth it. I learned so much over the course of the program. The experience and confidence that comes from coding and building software every day is empowering.
Leanne K., Echo Platoon Graduate, U.S. Air Force Software Engineer, Novetta
In the 14 weeks of study, I acquired a greater depth of knowledge in Software Development than I could have attained in over a year of studying on my own. The quality of instruction and depth of understanding gained in each area is unparalleled.
Conlin M., Bravo Platoon Graduate, U.S. Marine Corps Software Engineer, Raise
I just completed Code Platoon with the Bravo cohort. It was a great opportunity and I could not have asked for more. Jon is a great teacher and all of the TAs were very helpful/knowledgeable. It is a great way to get your foot in the door of the tech world.
Brian M., Bravo Platoon Graduate, U.S. Army Linux Engineer, DRW
Code Platoon devotion to the veteran community is unprecedented. The lead instructor, Jon, is uniquely qualified to get veterans into the tech community. He cares about the students and is a real fan of the technologies he teaches.
Raul V., Bravo Platoon Graduate, U.S. Navy Software Engineer, Trustwave
Take all of that and add a generous tuition-assistance program coupled with companies willing to grant internship slots to new graduates, and you have a package that is unmatched by any other boot camp.
Javier R., Alpha Platoon Graduate, U.S. Air Force Software Engineer, Power Reviews
If you are a Veteran and are looking at Developer Bootcamps, Code Platoon is the best choice by far. I went from an under employed Veteran with no idea what I was going to do to a software engineer at an awesome company, in less than a year.
John C. Bravo Code Platoon Graduate, U.S. Marine Corps Software Engineer, Chicago Trading Company
I was covered roughly 80% [$10,000 veteran’s scholarship] of the $13,000 tuition and Code Platoon offered the second [full] scholarship for women in tech. I loved how it was well-mixed with the programming knowledge and soft skills such as resume building and interview practice.
