Colorado Springs, Colo., August 4, 2021 – Like many other organizations resorting to online meetings and social distancing protocols during the Covid pandemic, Goodwill of Colorado is re-establishing their former, in-person programs and training services—including the non-profit’s “Learn/Improve/Focus/Thrive” (LIFT) IT program hosted at their 1460 Garden of the Gods Rd. administrative campus. “Although Goodwill was able to conduct a successful remote learning platform for our IT students over the past year, we are excited to announce that our campus has re-opened its IT training center and classrooms,” said LIFT Instructor Joe Mullally. “LIFT’s on-campus learning environment and hands-on activities are important components for our students.”
Goodwill’s IT training is free to qualifying students, and courses run 18 weeks—including a 20-hour-per-week time commitment with staggered enrollment schedules. Courses are geared toward both aspiring and current IT professionals, who have networking and administrative skills in Windows-based TCP/IP networks and familiarity with other operating systems, such as OSX, Unix and Linux. Goodwill’s Security+ certification course provides new and advancing career opportunities to current IT professionals. After earning their Security+ certification, graduates are primed for rapid growth and long-term success in military defense and other security-focused sectors.
Goodwill of Colorado’s comprehensive IT training program gives participants the required knowledge to pass the CompTIA A+, Network+ and/or Security+ Certification combining online and in-person coursework. “These highly-valued certifications not only bring new and growing opportunities for graduating students; they literally change the course of their lives … and in a very short time,” Mullally added. Flexible study hours are available—including daytime, evenings and weekends.
