UNITE-LA Today: Step into Tech Keeps Marching On

We graduated our third cohort of Step into Tech participants last month, with 14 of the 15 completing the course! In addition to learning from and engaging with professionals in tech, participants took courses in Networking, Cybersecurity and Data Science through the Cisco Networking Academy. Participants are now continuing with part two, where they have selected one of the pathways above and are taking courses, followed by a test that will earn them a lifetime certification in that pathway, an essential addition to their resume and a true step into a career in tech. We already have one participant who has successfully earned his lifetime certification in Cybersecurity!

A special thanks to our summer Step into Tech partners and volunteers for sharing their time, expertise and experience, and supporting the development of talent our region needs to meet our workforce needs!
