In 2019, IT Pros began supporting ITWorks as a continued way to give back to the local tech community of Philadelphia. Since the inception of IT Pros in 2011, the mission remains to help companies grow with the right people. IT Pros has since added to our mission to help raise those up around the local tech community who are eager to learn by proudly supporting the ITWorks program and their 16-week job training program to help prepare young adults for entry-level IT careers without the need for a degree.
With over 500 graduates, ITWorks is a proven program training young people for entry-level IT careers. During the FREE 16-week program, students spend the first 11 weeks in the classroom learning about PC hardware, troubleshooting, IT networking, security, and much more to prepare for the CompTIA A+ certification. Then, students gain real-life, hands-on experience during a five-week internship at a local corporation or nonprofit. The program is offered twice a year – Spring and Fall – and is bolstered by the support of over 100 volunteers.
Graduates are eligible for roles as Help Desk Technicians, End User Support Techs, IT Specialists, Field Technicians, and much more!
“We were looking for an IT Infrastructure program to support in the local Philadelphia region and came across the perfect fit with ITWorks”, said Kielinski – Founder & CEO of IT Pros. “We will be helping students land new jobs, provide mentorship, resume writing and interviewing workshops, along with career path guidance from our technology professional community”, Kielinski added.
If you are between the ages of 18-26 years old, a high school graduate (or equivalent) without a Bachelor’s degree, interested in technology, and able to commit to classes from 9 am to 3 pm, Monday through Friday for 16-weeks apply now!
