Code School congratulates latest crop of graduates in virtual ceremony Wednesday

Posted on in AIM Newsroom, Community, Tech Education

Congratulations to our recent AIM Code School graduates!

On Wednesday, a group of code school instructors, students and friends and family members gathered together for a virtual graduation ceremony. 

The event highlighted 35 graduates who had successfully completed AIM Code School’s accredited courses, the third module of the Callers to Coders program with Physicians Mutual, and students who participated in the code school’s partnership with Ralston High School. 

The students took courses such as the Foundations of Web Development, .NET Development and Java Development. 

The latest cohort of AIM Code School graduates

This recent group of graduates had to successfully navigate a switch to online learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and they did so with grace, said director Emily Matis. 

“Despite the changes due to social distancing, our AIM Code School students continue to work hard to grow their knowledge of technology and coding,” Matis said. “Our expert instructors are confident in the recent graduates’ ability to work in the tech field.”

When addressing his recent cohort of Data Foundations and Business Intelligence students, AIM Code School instructor Jeremy Bergmann said he was impressed with the energy and excitement with which the class dove into the material. 

“It was a really enjoyable experience—we covered databases from top to bottom,” Bergmann said. “Hopefully it was more than a learning experience—you now have the skills to go out and conquer the world!”

“I had an amazing experience with AIM Code School, especially with (instructor) Vanessa (Kasun),” said graduate Christopher Sarmiento. “Thank you for helping me develop my skills; I appreciate it.”

And the learning isn’t over for the students. Pedro Muro-Ramirez, who completed the Foundations of Web Development course, is looking forward to taking the Java Development class, he told the group.
