Start right with our Java Bootcamp

Java is a technical language with a vast number of functions. As a junior Java developer, you don’t need to master them all – that would take years. But you do need to know where to start and the basics required by prospective employers before they’ll hire you. Many learners get needlessly lost in Java’s complexity.

Code College’s Java Bootcamp is designed to teach you the must-know Java essentials that will prepare you for your first day on the job. You’ll get:

  • Expert tuition from qualified lecturers under the leadership of Arnold (the lead lecturer) (BSc Computer Science with Honours) backed by 30 years software development industry and training experience
  • Study materials with all the information you need and loads of helpful hints
  • Practical projects that allow you to cut your teeth on typical development scenarios
  • Preparation and registration advice for international certification (Oracle Certified Associate Java exam and Oracle Certified Professional Java exam)
  • Simulated exams to test your readiness before sitting for certification
  • Hints and tips for successful job interviews
  • Automatic absorption into Java Internship program at our holding company, Compuways
  • Support available every day (face-to-face), including Saturdays by appointment – remember we even support you after the initial 6 months to complete outstanding projects and to prepare for the Oracle Exam.

Admission Requirements

Please note: While a good math pass is recommended, the combined requirements determine acceptance to the course. We encourage candidates to prove themselves by completing an aptitude test (R350) or do the Intro to Programming Course and attend a personal interview with us.

Study Loans Available

Having trouble financing your studies? Qualifying candidates (will also have to write an aptitude test) can apply for a student loan, and repay their fees once employed. Please read our application procedure for more details.

Course Contents

Practical assignments / tests to complete in between modules are intended to consolidate your module’s knowledge into a practical solution. Upon successful completion of such a practical project, you will also get a competency certificate for that module.

(NB: please enquire if you must to do the Intro to Programming  module first or not)

Job placement and pass rate of close to 100%

Companies are begging us for Java skills. Code College works with sister company Compuways IT Recruitment to find you employment after graduation. We have hundreds of IT employers on record and standing orders for Java developers. And every graduate from us that were looking for employment, was placed, if not by Compuways, then by other recruiters who network with us. This is to show that we are very serious about what we do and that your success is our goal.

Job Internship

The most common reason for not employing juniors, is lack of ‘on-the-job’ skills. We do not leave our students alone until they are employed. Any unemployed Java bootcamp students are automatically absorbed in our Internship program – actually from the first day you are in the bootcamp, you are an intern with our holding Company, Compuways. After the bootcamp you are assigned more practical projects.

  • During the internship you will be monitored and supported to further build your ‘on-the-job’ skills, like:
  • Getting and administering your own Linux Server
  • Installing, maintaining Java, MySQL, Tomcat, Webadmin on your Linux VP Server
  • Deploying your own software applications on your Linux VP Server
  • Participating on our real client software development projects
  • Preparing for Java/OCA Exam oracle-java-oca
    Preparing for Java/OCP Exam oracle-jav-ocp
