Congratulations To Our TechCareers Graduates!
Last week we examined Calgary’s growing skills gap in the technology sector. This week, we congratulate our TechCareers students on their newly completed training, facilitating the growth of Tech talent and industry in Alberta.
“The province is in a tricky position. The need for new skill sets are emerging faster than traditional programming can always respond,” says Lora Bucsis, Manager of Emerging Markets in Corporate Training.
Earlier this month, our second class of TechCareers students graduated from their 17 weeks of intensive technical training at SAIT Polytechnic.
As many transitioning Calgarian professionals, this group of 38 students, entered into the TECHCareers program with education and experience in STEM focused areas (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and are now leaving our program with complementary training to an already diverse skillset.
Equipped with extensive skills in Python, HTML, PHP, SQL, CSS, C#, Network Design, Cloud Computing and much more – both our software developers and network specialists are on to complete eight weeks of employment experience with local tech industry leaders.
To our graduates – we would like to recognize and congratulate you on completing this important milestone, working hard and exceeding expectations. From Manpower and the TechCareer’s program, we are excited to see the advancement of your technical skill sets and the impacts you will make in Alberta’s Tech Industry. Let’s all give our graduates a round of applause for their hard work!
Check in next week for our segment on technology and its impact on the future of manufacturing.
