Code/IT Academy is a free, cohort-based program that provides upskilling in IT administration, web development, and associated technologies. After ten weeks of training, participants earn industry-recognized certifications (e.g., CompTIA Security+ certification, LinkedIn IT certificates, and AWS Cloud Practitioner certification). Originally launched in Bloomington, READI funding will allow The Mill to partner with Regional Opportunity Initiatives and Ivy Tech to expand the program first to Washington and Crawford counties and then to the entire Uplands region over the next three years.
