The Tucson Information Technology Skills Alliance was recently awarded an Economic & Workforce Development Grant from the City of Tucson to rapidly train underserved adults into high growth information technology careers. The Alliance is a partnership between the Community Investment Corporation (CIC), Tucson-based tech accelerator Go For Vertical, and Transmosis Corporation, a nationally recognized information technology and cyber security workforce developer. The Alliance will deploy Transmosis’s proprietary virtual training model that enables successful applicants to become rapidly skilled in employer driven information technology skills that lead to industry certifications and employment. The aim of the Alliance is to offer an intensive information technology training program to residents of the Tucson area with a particular focus on the unemployed, underserved, minorities, veterans, and low-wage career changers.
“Cultivating our regional information technology talent pool is critical to the long term economic development of Tucson at large and this highly innovative and scalable program will help to accelerate that," said Barbra Coffee, Director of Economic Initiatives for the City of Tucson.
