These programs are designed to empower individuals with the skills and knowledge necessary to thrive in today's dynamic tech industry.

The collaboration between Upright Education and BRTC brings together Upright's expertise in delivering comprehensive online education and BRTC's reputation for high-quality, accessible learning opportunities.

The genesis of these innovative tech bootcamp programs can be traced back to community demand, as a member of the community suggested that BRTC should consider offering bootcamp-style training programs. This insight spurred a collaborative effort between Upright Education and BRTC to bring these programs to fruition. The partnership represents a proactive response to the needs of individuals seeking career opportunities in technology and supports the growth of the tech industry within Arkansas.
