The Iron Yard, a technology education company that offers full-time and part-time web development courses in person, online and through corporate training programs across the U.S. and is headquartered in Greenville will be shutting down operations after this semester. 

The company was established in 2013 and has classes in 14 other locations across the U.S. 

In a statement to WORD, Chief Marketing Officer, Eric Dodds, said:

"Over the last four years, The Iron Yard has led the code school industry in preparing students for careers as software developers. The industry as a whole is still young and its leaders face the challenge of a nascent market, as well as the demands facing all institutions in the higher education marketplace. 
In considering the current environment, the board of The Iron Yard has made the difficult decision to cease operations at all campuses after teaching out remaining summer cohorts. We will finish out summer classes completely, including career support. 
While our journey is coming to an end, we will always take pride in the thousands of people our staff helped to launch new careers."
