Earlier this month, Governor Jack Markell announced details of Delaware’s new IT initiative, TechHire, which will provide training opportunities for residents seeking employment opportunities in the technology field.
The goal of TechHire is to provide Delaware residents with certifications for IT jobs. It establishes an alliance between businesses and training partners, allowing participants of the program to become certified in months as opposed to years. TechHire has gained recognition from the White House as a model training program.
“In an economy forever transformed by new technology and global competition, it’s more important than ever that we give Delawareans the best chance to acquire skills most valued in the workplace,” said Markell in a recent press release. “With hundreds of open IT jobs in the state, it’s clear that we must think differently about training in this field and connect more people to well-paying technology careers.”
