"Creating IT Futures' IT-Ready program allows students to learn basic IT fundamentals while also receiving opportunities for refinement on critical soft skills desired by employers. It's vital to Minnesota citizens who are looking to get started in the IT industry quickly!"

- Representative Sondra Erickson

Program Overview

Students who enroll in our IT-Ready Technical Support program learn technical skills to help them successfully pass both parts of the CompTIA A+ certification exam.

 

All students also receive targeted professional development to refine critical business skills, such as communication and presentation, conflict management, teamwork and collaboration, and critical thinking and problem solving. Graduates are prepared to apply both technical and professional skills starting Day One of their next job.

 

Classes run 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Monday-Friday for 8 weeks. Students are required to be on time every day; the program allows only one absence and two tardies. Employers expect their staff to be on time, and we expect the same of our students in order to prepare you for your tech career.

 

Upon certification, graduates get career services, helping them connect to potential employers. In the Twin Cities, we work with more than 60 employers. Although we cannot guarantee job placement -- no reputable school can -- we give our graduates the tools they need to land a job and be successful in it.
