There are more than 146,000 tech jobs across the state of Colorado with thousands of companies looking for highly trained and qualified staff. Goodwill of Colorado’s LIFT IT Training Program can help you become one of these sought-after employees by providing FREE training for four CompTIA certifications: A+, Network+, Security+ and Cyber Security Analyst (CySA+*). Offered in both Colorado Springs and Denver, Goodwill’s IT Training gives both experienced professionals and novices the opportunity to further or launch their IT career.

The CompTIA A+ certification provides those who are new to the IT industry the knowledge to be successful in entry level IT jobs like Helpdesk Support and PC Technicians. Those interested in working for a corporate IT department will benefit greatly from the CompTIA Network+, which teaches the fundamentals of operating and managing a corporate network. CompTIA’s Security+ certification serves as a springboard to mid-level cyber security positions. CompTIA’s CySA+* certification gives students the opportunity to gain expertise in incident detection, prevention and response through continuous security monitoring.

Each certification program is self-paced and offered in a hybrid manner. Students can complete A+ training in 24 weeks; and Network+ , Security+ and CySA+* training in just 18 weeks. IT Training students receive:

• On-site learning facilitation with schedule flexibility – including evenings and weekends
• Online learning portal
• Paid voucher for certification exam
• Hands-on learning workshops
• Practice exams
• Textbooks
• Soft skills training

*Security+ certification is a requirement for CySA+

Through networking opportunities, mock interviews, and resume reviews Goodwill of Colorado provides employment support upon certification. Nearly 70% of IT Training students have been placed in jobs since completing the program. YOU could be next!
