It's no secret that Utah is a growing tech hub that has no plans of slowing down. With tech companies popping up on a regular basis in cities like Provo, Lehi, and Salt Lake, there is no shortage of jobs. Some of the hottest tech jobs in Utah currently are web development, app development, and of course digital marketing. The best part? There is no shortage of jobs in these fields.
So this means colleges are getting slammed with people wanting to get a tech-related degree to snag one of these jobs right? Not really. In fact, more and more Utah residents are saying no to the expensive $20,000+ university tuition and joining what are commonly known as "bootcamps".
Typically these bootcamps are after hour programs, allowing those taking the course to keep their day job or go to college. However, some do offer "full-time" training, meaning you are learning all day on a 9am-5pm schedule. These courses range anywhere from 6 weeks to 12 weeks. The deal gets even sweeter when you find that graduates of these bootcamps are landing the same jobs as 4-year graduates from major universities. Not a bad deal.
So what options are there? Let's take a look at some of the hottest tech bootcamps in Utah.
