We're accepting applications for classes in Charlotte, NC; Minneapolis / St. Paul; and Portland, OR. If you live in Atlanta; Cincinnati, OH; Columbus, OH; Dallas; New York City; and Washington, DC, we encourage you to apply to our network partner, Per Scholas.

Once you’ve submitted an online application to IT-Ready, we review it and contact you via email to schedule a phone interview. Please make sure to check your spam folder for our email. Additional steps in the application process include:

  • An online workforce personality inventory assessment,
  • An in-person written test for adult basic education for reading and math (candidates must score at the 10th-grade level or higher; you can prepare for the test by reviewing the TABE Study Guide), and
  • An in-person interview.

This is a competitive process and training spots are limited. Not all applicants will advance to each stage of the screening process. Candidates who successfully move through all of these steps may be invited to join IT-Ready. Final acceptance into the program is pending the results of a criminal background check.

All information must be completed.
