<Java Conversion
Course />

We have created a 3-week Java conversion course

It is open to:
> Graduates of Accelerate, our main coding bootcamp course
> Anyone who is a developer in another stack and wants to learn Java

The first beta for the Java conversion course will run from the 7th August 2017 to the 25th August 2017.

For employers of Accelerate students

Our students graduate at the end of July 2017. If you fast-track your hiring process and hire any of them during the first week of August (before the Java conversion course starts) the first thing you can do is put them on this course. On us. Free. Gratis. We'll hand them back to you again ready to go. Can't say fairer than that.

For individuals wanting to take the course or for companies wanting to retrain developers in Java:

Applicants will need to have proven record of being able to code in a non-Java stack. They will have the appetite to learn a genuine, fast-paced and thorough introduction to Java. All applicants will need to take a remote coding challenge. Cost per student is £1800 (including VAT)
