The start date for the proposed coding school to begin in Buffalo has been set back to January of 2018, according to a release from JOCO First, who is one of the entities working to bring the school here.
The original target date for the school to begin was next month.

INTERAPT, a technology company based in Kentucky, has implemented a training program to train workers for their company, and is interested in expanding into other regions, with Buffalo earmarked as the next site to open a training center that will teach those chosen for the program how to code mobile apps and guarantee employment once they complete the training.

Buffalo's City Council and the Johnson County Commissioners earlier this year agreed to provide $50,000 each in funding for a study of the area to determine the skill level and educational needs of the local workforce to help in designing the training program.

Students in the program would be paid a stipend while they attend training and would be guaranteed a job with INTERAPT once they complete it and hold their certification.
The jobs would pay in the area of $37,000 to $45,000 annually.

Once the classes begin they would take about six months to complete.

We will have more information on the delay and specifics on the program's start date, in an upcoming story.
