Michigan Shifting Code is a career transition program designed to address critical workforce shortage areas related to computer programming and other demand occupations which are considered key to helping sustain and grow Michigan’s emerging IT industry. Each Shifting Code project is determined by local market conditions and designed to quickly respond to demand from regional employers with similar program language/staffing needs by customizing training solutions that can be targeted at unemployed or underemployed technical talent or those seeking to transition to high-demand software programming occupations. The program includes an assessment, comprehensive classroom training, mentorship, coaching and a practicum/internship component. By the end of the training, participants are transformed into more adaptable professionals with experiences, knowledge and skills related to their new roles.
If you would like to be notified about upcoming Shifting Code opportunities, please fill out this form to be added to our distribution list. There is no obligation, and in addition to being automatically alerted when registration opens for new Shifting Code cohorts, people who sign up will be provided with periodic updates on other related IT career options and programs.
Please note: Due to high demand for the limited number of slots available through each cohort, Shifting Code does utilize a competitive application and selection process. Additionally, any candidates accepted into a training program will be required to pay $100 to participate.
