First Amazon, now Google (again) - MATTHEW DEMBICKI, AACC 21st Century Center
El Centro College in Dallas hosted Google’s announcement that the company will expand a six-month training program it developed for people who don’t have experience or a college degree for entry-level information technology (IT) jobs. El Centro is among 30 community colleges that currently offer the program. “These schools play a vital role in creating economic opportunities for the people they serve, and we’re excited to be a part of that with the IT Support Professional Certificate program,” Lisa Gevelber, vice president for Grow with Google, wrote of community colleges in a blog post about the expanded effort.
