TechHire is a free program for Detroit residents interested in careers in IT. The 10-week course in “IT Fundamentals” provides training in computer hardware components, file sharing, web browser navigation, WiFi, troubleshooting, help desk tickets, Microsoft Office Suite, and more. You’ll earn valuable certifications in Microsoft Excel and customer service. You’ll also earn a stipend for taking the course!
Because of the Covid crisis, the course is being provided virtually through online platforms such as Zoom, Google Classroom, and WebEx. With the training and certifications, you can use your new skills to improve your immediate job prospects or to pursue further training for higher-level tech jobs.
To qualify for the program, you must:
- Be a Detroit resident
- Submit to a background check
- Have access to a computer (we can provide one, if needed)
- Have WIFI and/or internet access
