Important COVID-19 Update

The health, well-being, and safety of our students is our top priority. Classes will be delivered on campus Thursdays & Fridays and online Saturdays. Social distancing and other COVID-19 guidelines will be enforced whilst on campus. We will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions informed by advice from the Australian Government and Health Authorities.

Why Flex Track?

Pursue a rewarding career in technology at a pace that works for you. Work around existing commitments while gaining the skills you need to become a job-ready Full Stack Developer in just 10 months. Just like our popular Fast Track program, Flex Track Bootcamp developers will gain the hands-on programming skills they need to soar in tech, graduate with the same nationally recognised and accredited Diploma of Information Technology, as well as have the opportunity to take part in a 4-week industry internship with some of Australia’s most innovative companies.


At Coder Academy, we’re passionate about looking for ways we can encourage diversity in the tech sector. With so few women and minority groups choosing Computer Science subjects and degrees, there is a strong need for confidence building via mentorship, role models, and an educational opportunity that translates into real world experience.

To combat the lack of diversity in technology, Coder Academy is proud to offer one Diversity Scholarship for each intake and campus of our Flex Track Bootcamp. The scholarship will cover 50% of total course fees of $19,980. Scholarships will be judged on a creative submission, and finalists will be determined following an interview. Scholarship deadline is 14 days prior to course start date.

*Terms and conditions apply.

Applications for the October 2021 intake will open on 13th September!

Soft Skills

Technical skills aren’t the only thing that matter when getting a job in tech. All of Coder Academy’s industry partners strongly emphasise the importance of Soft Skills, which is of critical importance when assessing the success of Flex Track students. Students are expected to collaborate, communicate, and help each other out. Agile methodology and other developer tools are also utilised in the classroom to emulate the real-world work environment.


All Flex Track projects replicate those often encountered in industry. Students are given a business problem from which they will derive requirements, build a solution, and deploy an application to the web. The students are assessed on their execution across a number of perspectives.
