Start an IT Career Without a Degree
You might think a college degree is necessary to begin a career as an IT support professional, data management, data analytics, cloud networking, cyber security and technical support. But that's not true! Employers are hiring people with technical certifications, communication skills, problem-solving skills, and real-life experience. Our ITWorks program provides technical training, soft skills development, and a five-week internship to place real-life experiences on your resume. Our employer partners mentor students in class, host interns, and serve as valuable references and referrals for your future employment opportunities.
IT Certifications You Can Get Without a College Degree
Two certifications are sought after for entry level IT support professionals -- Comp TIA A+ and CISCO IT Essentials. Over sixteen weeks in ITWorks, students earn at least one of these certifications using curriculum provided by CISCO and Accenture. These certifications are the first step in securing an entry-level IT position earning between $35,000 and $40,000 annually. You will prepare to pass your exams through in-person instruction and hands-on learning. Our coursework includes labs that deconstruct computer and server hardware and hands-on activities that help you put learning into action.
