Bloc

Belkins
With over 500,000 unfilled tech jobs in the US, traditional classroom education has proven unable to deliver enough talent for our increasingly tech-driven economy. Simultaneously, most people cannot quit their jobs to sit in a classroom to acquire the skills they need, so we've created an online alternative that’s just as effective and more accessible.Founded in 2011, Bloc is addressing the tech skills gap for career-minded adults with highly structured remote training programs in software development and design. As the original “online coding bootcamp” with over 5,000 cumulative students around the world, Bloc collects direct input from engineering and design hiring managers to offer cutting-edge training programs with a 97% success rate for graduates.
