CodeOregon

I have registered with Treehouse under the new CodeOregon program. Are there any published materials on the parameters of the CodeOregon program and to what extent I am able to use Treehouse under the program. Right now I am a bit confused as to the time-frames and cost structure of the program. Any help out there?

If you got in through Code Oregon and are a Worksource client, my understanding is 12 months at no cost. Worksource might have the answer. Great luck !

So I went in person and talked to the people at Worksource about code Oregon. You have 60 days after initially signing up online to go in person and sign up.

What this entails:

+Going to Worksource Oregon and Setting up an Account

+Setting up a skills/resume profile

+Talking to someone for an initial welcome interview

+Talking to the Code Oregon specialist

Thanks Johanna for information on the process, now that it sounds like there is a process set up I probably should go visit them soon.

Sure thing. Code Oregon is a grant provided by the State of Oregon. If you follow the directions your teamtreehouse.com account will be provided at no cost to you. You must register via the codeoregon.org link, and you must visit a worksource oregon office in person within sixty days of registering.

Thanks Chris. I assume the visit to Worksource Oregon is to register with them for job seeking. I am already registered with Worksource Oregon since I am currently collecting unemployment benefits, so I assume I wouldn't need to sign up with them again. Is that correct or is this a question for Worksource Oregon?

Brian I'm in a similar situation. The instructions I received from Treehouse mentioned I need to visit a Worksource Oregon office in order to keep the Treehouse membership. I'm assuming there's something Worksource needs to do to "validate" us in the Treehouse system. Don't quote me though...

Has anyone actually visited Worksource irl yet? I signed up online, but have not visited in person yet.

I did Friday morning actually. They had no idea but I have been doing some of the training this morning and it shows that my account is part of that whole program.

Does anyone that is also in this program have any details about the time limitations of it? How long does the subsidized training last - 6mos, 1yr, 2yrs??

I'll be right back need to go pack all my things and move to oregon, lucky lucky oregon. hate you florida =(

Kristofer,

I came here from central Florida. Love the northwest. Job market sure could be better in Oregon. Haven't landed a decent opportunity since job loss at beginning of recession. Hoping some new coding skills will help. Best to you.

Don't move here without a job! The market is over-swamped with over-educated young people, and under-educated old people all unqualified to fill the jobs available.

I signed up online and actually went into the WorkSource office in Salem to register. There wasn't a single person there I talked with that had even heard of Code Oregon, much less had any details. They walked me through their "registration" which was verifying that they had my current information. The entire in person process took about 5 minutes but they couldn't answer a single question about the program.

I am already registered with WorkSource, think I still need to go in person?

I spoke with a friend of mine with the Oregon Employment Department who provided some information about CodeOregon. In a nutshell, the program details are still a bit fuzzy. The agreement between Treehouse and the Oregon folks was completed and then the media got the info and announced it before many of the details had been worked out. Now there are a bunch of us signed up and utilizing the service without there being a real specific plan for what or how the trained people will be utilized.

If I can put another tool in my tool box for free, I am. That's how I roll. Your just sitting there at the computer any how. Fire it and your brain up! Have a great class!

Have a Nice day! Michael

I am sure you're just sitting that there are your computer.

I first registered with Treehouse, obtained my Worksource Id number. Then I read on this post to go to Code Oregon website. So I did that and was told I am not eligible due to being a current Treehouse member? I am totally lost. I even called a Worksource Center and they did not know about Code Oregon.

Robert,

Current students are not eligible. I asked the same question a while back. Treehouse confirmed it. It's a silly arrangement, but there it is.
