Savvy Coders Granted Authorization As Post-Secondary Educational Institution

Thursday, August 22, 2019

Savvy Coders, a full-stack software development bootcamp with operations in Chattanooga, Nashville, and St. Louis, Mo., announces their approval as a post-secondary educational institution by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. The Tennessee Higher Education Commission is a state government agency that vets and selects educational institutions and specific classes that teach skills to Tennessee’s workforce. Classes will be hosted by The Enterprise Center at the Edney Innovation Center. 

“We are pleased to receive the approval of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission, and we look forward to training Tennesseans the in-demand coding skills that employers need and want,” said Savvy Coders CEO Elaine Queathem.  “There are millions of unfilled software development jobs in the U.S., and we want to help Tennesseans learn the programming skills that lead to great careers."

“Anytime we can help grow Chattanooga’s stature as a place for tech innovation and improve the lives of our residents, it’s a win for everyone,” said President and CEO of The Enterprise Center Deb Socia. “Savvy Coders, The Enterprise Center, and THEC are all dedicated to training Chattanooga’s workforce, and we’re happy to host the program at The Edney Innovation Center.”
