Free IT training for young adults

NPower Technology Service Corps, a free 22 week IT training program for young adults, ages 18-25 years old, with High School Diplomas or GEDS is currently recruiting for the next cycle, which starts in mid-July.
NPower Technology Service Corps provides 17 weeks of IT training, covering topics such as troubleshooting, PC configuration, hardware, software applications, network administration and security. After completion of the 17 weeks, students are linked with paid, 5 week internships at non-profit or corporate companies. They also provide students with the opportunity to take the CompTIA A+ certification exam for free. In addition to IT training and internships, they have guest speakers that conduct professional workshops related to job readiness, networking, professional development, and self-marketing. Students also go on site visits to corporations such as Avaya, UBS, and Accenture. Many students who complete the program obtain employment in entry level IT positions.
NPower Technology Service Corps has two locations: one in Harlem and one in downtown Brooklyn. Applicants can choose to apply for the 9AM-1PM or the 2 PM-6PM class schedules.
