STEMAcad adult program

Urban Ed is taking a proactive stance on helping to create employment opportunities. Our IT Help Desk training program has evolved to our new STEMAcad which is an initiative to help those that are unemployed and underemployed penetrate the high-demand, and well paying IT sector. Veterans, dislocated workers, and ex-offenders whether first time or returning to the community are also encouraged to apply for our program. The goal of the program is economic security by preparing participants to get globally certified in specific IT occupations and specifically be ready to work in a variety of IT career pathways. Our STEMAcad expands our courses of study to now include network engineering, cybersecurity, computer programming, Health IT and of course our baseline training in computer support. Those completing any Urban Ed program of study will be highly trained and eligible for global IT certifications.

Urban Ed's curriculum is driven by its partnerships with Cisco's Networking Academy and Skillsoft's global elearning systems. Our delivery is a comprehensive, high-quality curriculum that includes live instructor training, hands-on learning labs, e-learning and remedial support to ensure successful job placement. Information sessions are held at Urban Ed, 2041 MLK Jr. Ave., SE, Suite M-2. The anticipated 2018 course calendar is available here.
