WHAT IS IT-READY?
Participants who enroll in this classroom-based program learn technical, career development and professional
skills to equip them for success in the IT field. At the end of the 8 weeks, you have the knowledge needed
to pass your CompTIA A+ certification exams —one of the key first steps toward gaining employment. IT-Ready
will connect you with area employers for interviews to obtain your first paid role as an IT professional.
The strong and supportive relationships we build with IT-Ready participants don’t end upon your graduation and employment. IT-Ready provides alumni benefits that encourage continued professional growth and development – and offers ways alumni can “pay it forward” and help other deserving individuals. Within six months of becoming A+ certified, alumni can access free online training and test vouchers for other CompTIA certifications.
