Start right with our Java Bootcamp (Spring, Angular)
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.
- Matric / Degreewith IT Programming – and able to pass this entry test .
- Our Intro to Programming course (There is an entry test, mentioned above too)
If you have not got a Matric, but are confident and motivated, you only need to do the Intro to Programming Course and attend a personal interview with us to get entry into the Java Bootcamp.
Study Loans Available
Having trouble financing your studies? Qualifying candidates (will also have to write an aptitude test) can apply for a student loan to repay some of their fees once employed. Please read our application procedure for more details.
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.

Java Bootcamp can be completed in 6 months or less, depending on the time and effort you are able to put in, although we recommend you should write your Oracle Exam and if you want to obtain any other certifications, you can spend another 3 – 6 months here doing that, we gladly support you for another 6 months – to get you employed.
However, it is possible to find work in 6 months. We have often placed students at employers from 6 months and some students got job offers before they have even completed the first 6 months – this is entirely dependent on the competencies you can demonstrate to employers – remember jobs are about COMPETENCIES, COMPETENCIES COMPETENCIES!!!
- Each module is 5 days of classroom lectures; related projects to be completed the following week on campus (or at home with support offered on Google Hangout or Skype)
- Weekly project progress sessions are held to support bootcamp students
- We have electronic groups and forums to encourage group communication in between modules, wherever students are.
Do I have to resign my Job to do the Java Bootcamp?
No, not if you are able to attend one week per month in the classroom. The next 2/3 weeks are for assignments and it is not required to be in the classroom every day. Read Edwin’s journey .
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.
The most common reason for not employing juniors is the 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
