The tech industry grew faster in Utah last year than any other state in the nation with a 3.6 increase in tech industry jobs, according to the Computing Technology Industry Association. This growth is impressive and is creating another challenge, and that is unfilled tech jobs, which can slow industry production. However, innovative programs like Helio Training are addressing this challenge.

Helio Training offers bootcamp-style courses for individuals to teach web development, mobile app development UI/UX design and certified Unity training for game development, all of which are in high demand. Training can be done full-time, part-time or after hours with curriculum focused on practical application. It’s not unusual for students to be working with corporate partners, providing real-live business solutions while in bootcamp. Helio Training’s success speaks for itself with 90 percent of grads finding jobs within five months of graduation.

David Preece, president of Helio Training, said the program is a sister company to Neumont College, which launched the training two years ago after seeing the increasing demand for technology professionals as a non-traditional approach that would provide skills training. This program is now serving everyone from recent high school or college grads to mid-level professionals looking to change industries.
