I forwarded him the link to the John Hopkins program and he already thinks
it's going to be very hard for him in terms of commitment of time.

That is what I had suggested but I think he couldn't find any good course at
a community college. Are there any that you are aware of? Also, all he might
need is few programming courses and may not need to go through a two or more
years of masters.
