Bootcamp and Pre-apprenticeship Program Powered By Innovate Birmingham
Evolution is key to survival and as like other organizations, Innovate Birmingham is evolving. For the remainder of 2022, Innovate Birmingham will be reducing its training offerings to allow us to focus on redesigning our services to best align with the current needs of the community.
Our intent is to design services that will allow us to remain true to the mission of equipping those from under-served communities with skills that will provide them access to tech jobs. We will continue to work on our committed projects through our re-design phase. If you have any questions please reach out to Executive Director Katherine Zachara: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Updates on new training dates will be provided here on the Innovate Birmingham website and through our mailing list. To join our mailing list to receive email updates regarding upcoming training, please click here and ask about "bootcamps".

Please keep in mind that participating in an Innovate Birmingham bootcamp is a full-time commitment. You are expected to attend class Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. There will also be additional studying and classwork to complete. When considering whether you can commit to our program, it’s helpful to think of your participation in Innovate Birmingham in the same way you would think about a full-time job. However, we understand that emergencies and funding needs arise. We offer supportive services to help meet those needs. When you are accepted into the program, you will undergo a barrier assessment with our senior case manager, who will then develop a support plan. If you are already in the program when needs arise, we ask that you contact us immediately to let us know how we can assist you.
