(North Canton, OH – July 7, 2014) – Through a special grant, Stark State College is offering free training for those with information technology experience to upgrade skills and acquire industry-recognized credentials.
The network-focused classes will prepare students to take CompTIA certification exams for A+, Network+ and Security+, and Stark State’s career development experts will then help them advance into the right job.
“We conduct job seeker support groups to help students network, develop resumes and learn job search skills geared toward new positions in IT,” said Susan Dukeman, training coordinator. “We also work closely with area companies who need IT workers.”
The free training is worth more than $3,000, Dukeman said, and the program also reimburses employers up to $7,000 while the new hire learns job specifics. The program is funded by an Ohio Technical Skills Training Grant.
