Eleven Fifty Academy in Carmel has acquired an apprenticeship program and hired a Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology graduate to serve as the program’s director. Tiffany Trusty will lead the program, which was previously under the control of Eleven Fifty Consulting.
The academy says having the apprenticeship program under academy control will allow it to grow more quickly in order to meet demand for skilled and experienced coders. Eleven Fifty says it will also complement the new nine-week Accelerated Learning Program by giving students more real-world experience.
"We are thrilled to have Tiffany join our team at Eleven Fifty Academy," said John Qualls, president of Eleven Fifty Academy. "Tiffany brings with her an exceptionally high level of expertise and enthusiasm, which greatly enhances our programs as a whole and aligns with our mission at Eleven Fifty Academy. Acquisition of the Apprenticeship Program is a natural step in in the evolution of Eleven Fifty Academy to fulfill our purpose."
Trusty also serves as the technology chair of the Women & Hi Tech board. Eleven Fifty said she is dedicated to mentoring the next generation of coders.
"I fell in love with the academy the first time I listened to Scott Jones speak of their mission," said Trusty. "I am honored to not only be able to follow my dream, but more importantly to help others reach their potential through coding."
