The Workforce Connection is recruiting individuals interested in receiving free training for jobs in the field of information technology.
The State of Illinois has included Information Technology as one of its key employment sectors. According to the state, there were more than 300 job postings for IT positions in the Rockford area in the last quarter.
The Northern Illinois Workforce Alliance last year received a grant from the state to help eligible participants with an interest and aptitude in technology earn the certifications necessary to gain employment as computer programmers, system managers, software and web developers, network administrators, security specialists and other technology-related positions.
The training is available to eligible individuals from Winnebago, Boone and Stephenson Counties enrolled in the Dislocated Worker Program through The Workforce Connection. Apply for the program online at theworkforceconnection.org. For more information, call 815-921-2200.
