People who want to get into coding and computer programming may have a window to start in Idaho.

Apprenticeship Idaho announced a partnership with the Idaho Technology Council to register a new apprenticeship program called Code-to-Career.

Candidates would attend a 12-week coding boot camp at CodeWorks Boise. Near the end of the training they would apply for registered apprenticeships. Those would be full-time paid positions with In Time Tec. After the six months of on-the-job training they would receive a credential from the U.S. Department of Labor.

Interested candidates can contact Alisa Bondrurant, the Idaho Technology Council program manager, at 208-861-9207.

Apprenticeship Idaho is a partnership among the Idaho Department of Labor, Idaho Division of Career and Technical Education, Idaho AFL-CIO, Idaho Technology Council, PTECH, TechHelp and the Idaho Hospital Association. The program is fully funded by a $1.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to expand registered apprenticeships throughout the state in health care, information technology, advanced manufacturing and energy.

The Idaho Department of Labor projects that software development will be the hottest job in the Gem State over the next several years.
