Professional Services “Boot Camp” Takes Aim At Missouri Veterans

Claim Academy, a St. Louis, Missouri-based software development boot camp, recently announced plans to train more veterans after receiving GI Bill approval from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The approval means veterans will be able to be able to use GI Bill benefits, including tuition coverage, to participate in Claim Academy’s programs.

Claim Academy offers 12-week crash courses in programming. They focus on hands-on learning rather than lectures, and real world application rather than memorization. The program gives programmers the skills they need to enter the job market more quickly than through a four-year degree program.

Claim Academy founder Ola Ayeni said the GI Bill approval gives the organization the opportunity to attract veterans from across the U.S. to attend courses at Claim Academy thanks to the use of benefits such as tuition and housing assistance. Ayeni also said Claim Academy’s software development programs are perfect for veterans because they allow veterans to transition skills they acquired through military service into a profession in a well-paying, high-demand field.
