AUSTIN, TX, March 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in computer and information technology occupations is expected to increase 13% by 2030. Apprentice now is a new apprenticeship and on-the-job training provider that aims to address this labor shortage by providing on-demand technology career opportunities to eligible individuals.

Additionally, Apprentice Now serves as a gateway to opportunity, connecting those looking to secure new tech careers – cost-effectively and flexibly – with employers who are actively recruiting.

Apprentice Now focuses on two tracks: apprenticeship and on-the-job training, with programs in software development, cybersecurity, end-user computing, software testing, infrastructure support, network administration and application support. Job opportunities are regularly posted on the Apprentice Now website, so individuals can keep up to date with opportunities that match their interests and learn about skills that will be included in the training program.
Programs are 100% aligned to employers’ needs for specific jobs and can be completed in 8-12 weeks. Applicants must have a high school diploma and can earn up to 30 college credits through the Phoenix University, Harrisburg University of Science and TechnologyWhere Western Governors University.
We are in the midst of what many call the fourth industrial revolution – a blending of the physical and digital world through virtual reality, robotics, big data and artificial intelligence. Training a diverse and highly skilled workforce is key to closing the ever-growing skills gap in technology areas that are critical to business growth, corporate and national security, and global prosperity. . More than ever, we need these innovative technological learnings to create a talent pool for the future of our country.
