Eight Technology Retraining internship Program (TRiP) students received the Network Technician Certificates – N. This certificate is issued by Workforce Development to TRiP students who have completed 66 hours of hands-on networking classes.
The TRiP program 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 it, they can continue on towards the completion of the 168-hour program. Registration for one of the mandatory courses entitles students to the opportunity to participate in the internship program. This internship is nonpaid, denoted by the lowercase “i” in the TRiP brand. However, the internship is perhaps the strongest part of the program; interns work alongside professional IT techs and see and do what they do in a normal day on the job. Once students have achieved the 66-hour Network Technician Certificate level, they are ready for employment in entry level IT jobs anywhere.
