Stark State meets IT workforce training needs of individuals, businesses

(North Canton, OH – Jan. 2, 2013) – Stark State College will begin another round of training classes Jan. 23 to boost the information technology skills of unemployed and underemployed workers.

The IT training, coordinated in partnership with The Employment Source, will focus on specific noncredit programs leading to industry certifications, including web technologies (CIW), systems support (MTA), network security (Security+) and virtualization (VCP). The programs are designed for individuals seeking additional skills, but Stark State also will work closely with local employers interested in fostering skill development.

The training is funded by an H-1B Technical Skills Training Grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, administered through the Ohio Board of Regents via the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. The two-year grant, renewable for up to four years, also provides assistance with internships and on-the-job training. Participants must meet eligibility requirements.

Individuals interested in the program or corporate clients looking for help recruiting and identifying skilled employees can call Chad Henderson 330-494-6170, Ext. 5310, or email chenderson@starkstate.edu.
