Building a tech economy in West Virginia that works for everyone
We train people with no prior coding experience, prepare them for their first tech job, and connect them with open, entry-level software development jobs here in the Mountain State. NewForce is a full-time program and classes run from 9am-4pm Monday through Friday over Zoom.
Software developers solve real-world problems with code. We build tools that make everyday people’s lives easier. This is an incredibly rewarding career field if you love solving problems, working on teams, and learning new things. We train people from all different backgrounds-- teachers, fast food workers, house painters, and accountants, just to name a few. Our graduates make a median salary of $44,000 right out of our program, with salaries ranging up to $90,000 for more senior developers in West Virginia.
We know that the tech industry will shape the future. We want West Virginians to have a place in that future. Through our immersive curriculum, NewForce students build applications for a mock company, collaborate on teams, and graduate with in-demand software development skills and direct connections to open jobs.
