Coders Guild has taken another significant step in making the Philippines a nation of programmers as it recognized the first batch of Software Development Training Program (SDTP) Level 1 graduates during the moving-up ceremony yesterday at the NOLITC CyberCentre extension in Bacolod City.
The SDTP is a 7-month intensive training course that produces entry-level programmers. A total of 40 students have already completed the 12-week basic programming course (Level 1), which started in December 2018. The students are now starting the Level 2 module, which will now focus on hands-on programming.
Vice Governor Eugene Jose Lacson, who graced the event with his presence commended NOLITC and its partners for their "positive social impact" by bringing SDTP to the community and opening more opportunities for the students.
SDTP in Bacolod City is a pioneer pilot run in partnership with Negros Occidental Language and Information Technology Center (NOLITC), with the support of the provincial government.
Batch 2, which has a total of 30 students, will start their training soon and complete another 12-week course in basic programming (Level 1).
