TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Mayor's Office is accepting applications for the next round of I/O Avenue, a coding academy which is put on in partnership with DOMI Station and FAMU.

Applications are due Monday.

The program is aimed at bridging the disconnect between a growing tech sector and a workforce lacking the skills to fill those positions. Participants will learn skills including software language, development processes and more.

Two different tracks are being offered.

One focuses on job training for those who have no prior tech background and come from underrepresented or economically challenged communities. That's called the "On Ramp" course and is considered the introductory course.

The second is for those who have a background in STEM fields, but want to enhance their skills. The "Highway" course is considered more advanced.

Courses run 10 to 12 weeks long and accept 12 to 18 students.
