Nov 12, 2019
Ignite IT is a powerful collaboration between the Akron Urban League, ConxusNEO and The Computer (TC) Workshop, with support from the KeyBank Business Boost & Build program, powered by JumpStart.
Ignite IT is a component of the Ignite: Connections that Fuel Success Program (Ignite) that is an industry-specific training program that places selected participants on a pathway to a CompTIA A+ certification. The redesigned format of Ignite IT couples structured curriculum from industry experts with experiential learning and soft skills development training to ultimately increase minority representation in the tech sector. This program will provide grant-funded CompTIA A+ training for 1001 (The Essentials) and includes weekly instruction from TC Workshop, class book/ materials, a test voucher, a retake voucher, test out course, practice exams, employer engagement opportunities leveraged by ConxusNEO and soft skills development training by your Akron Urban League.
Ignite IT will begin on January 7th from 6 pm-9 pm and will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 11 weeks. Applications are now open and will close on December 6, 2019, at 5 pm EST. Applicants who apply by the deadline will be invited to complete an aptitude assessment during the week of December 9-13, 2019. Within 24-48 hours of the assessment, you will either be invited to an Ignite IT panel interview or asked to meet with an Ignite staff member to discuss employment assistance. Panel interviews will take place the week of December 16-20, 2019.
