LOUISVILLE -- DaVinci Coders  announced it is the first in the nation to be given Microdegree-granting authority for its 11-13 week courses on Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, Swift iOS and Game Development.Davinci_logo

Working as a launch partner with Atlanta-based Edevate, the Microdegree is a digital credential certifying that one has completed 1,000 hours of learning in a professional discipline, including a minimum of 500 contact-hours in certified educational programs.

Completing a Microdegree is the equivalent of a full year of undergraduate courses, Davinci Coders said.

Students granted a Microdegree will receive a secure PDF diploma and a digital badge linked to a transcript describing the educational experience.

“We feel very honored to be part of the effort to break the mold of traditional credentialing,” said Thomas Frey, DaVinci Institute executive director. “Over the coming years, we’ll see a huge need to re-skill our workforce, and Microdregrees have the potential to become the most recognizable credential in the world.”

DaVinci Coders also announced it has become one of the first coding schools in the nation to offer a pro-level, instructor-led coding course in Swift iOD development with the first course starting June 2.

The cost of the course is $2,900 with all courses held in the DaVinci Institute’s Louisville classrooms.
