Code Platoon part of DoD Skillbridge program for transitioning service members

Code Platoon is a Department of Defense approved Skillbridge program, in accordance with DODI 1322.29 and NAVADMIN 222/15.

Code Platoon provides transitioning service members with an opportunity to develop in-demand job skills while still serving. Specifically, service members who participate via SkillBridge can use their last 6 months of active duty to participate in Code Platoon’s Full-time Coding Bootcamp.

In addition to the accelerated, high intensity, 14-week Coding Bootcamp with small classes focused on hands-on experience, Code Platoon offers a variety of career enhancement opportunities. These include career planning and job search strategies and skills-building, with resume writing and interview techniques. Code Platoon also provides interaction with tech industry leaders and a competitive internship program with our hiring partners.

The Skillbridge program is open to military service members who are within six months of separation or retirement. Participants take part in the Code Platoon Full-time remote program or may attend In Person with command approval. This means you’ll be able to take the program from wherever you live now or attend a live setting at our Chicago classroom.

Code Platoon provides a special full scholarship for the remote program for students who attend through SkillBridge. Partial Scholarships or the GI Bill can be used for the In-person program.


The Code Platoon Skillbridge program is open to military service members who are within six months of separation or retirement. It is also open to recently transitioned veterans.
