· Free Tech Training Adds Hiring Partners. An online training course targets recent college graduates with skills in programming, bringing them together in teams to create an app and develop professional skills for their specific career. It costs $50 to apply, but the course itself is free for those who are selected through the application process. Students who finish the course are matched with openings at companies across Alabama. Those companies now include Alfa Insurance, Protective Life, Hospice Link, Enterprise Technologies, Fleetio, IllumiCare and original partner MotionMobs. All of them have signed on to be hiring partners with the CodingSolutions program, which launched last year. The idea is to keep local tech talent here while helping them grow their careers. It’s free thanks to the backing of retired businessman Rod Frazer, who helped set up the program as local tech openings piled up. The state had more than 5,000 computing job vacancies last August, according to the governor’s office. There were more than 2,000 openings in the Montgomery area in 2017, the mayor’s office said.
