Six Technology Retraining internship Program (TRiP) students recently received their Network Technician Certificates. TRiP started in 1998 and is designed for people who want to try their hand at IT. They pay for one course at a time and if they like the program, students continue on toward the completion of the 168-hour program. Registration for one of the mandatory courses gives a student the opportunity to participate in the internship program. This internship is non-paid but it is an essential element of the program because interns work alongside IT techs and gain practical on-the-job training.
Once students have completed 66 hours of classroom and hands-on training and reached the Network Technician Certificate level, they are able to seek employment in entry-level IT jobs.
