“This partnership demonstrates, once again, DeVry’s commitment to closing the opportunity gap while preparing learners for a workforce that is shaped by continuous technological change,” said Shantanu Bose, Ph.D., DeVry University’s provost and chief academic officer. “It’s paramount for us to continue creating shorter, agile forms of education, and working closely with partners to provide a hands-on learning experience.”

DeVry’s tech programs along with CompTIA Apprenticeship for Tech help learners to develop a strong foundation in core IT, business and tech concepts while providing real-world on-the-job experience and addressing current and long-term workforce needs.

According to CompTIA Tech Jobs Report, job postings for technology positions approached 484,000 in July. Through the first seven months of 2022, U.S. companies listed approximately 3.1 million job postings for tech positions, an increase of 49% for the same period last year.1

“We can demonstrate to employers of any size and from any industry that by investing in training through apprenticeship they can gain access to a diverse pool of candidates and create a predictable pipeline to meet their tech hiring needs,” added Amy Kardel, vice president for strategic workforce relationships at CompTIA.

Instruction and training delivered through the apprenticeship program are based on National Guideline Standards created by CompTIA in collaboration with the American Institute for Research and approved by the U.S. Department of Labor. These standards detail the competencies in technical and employability skills that apprentices need to join the IT workforce in occupations such as tech project coordinators, tech support specialists, network support specialists, cybersecurity support technicians, and data analysts.

Companies participating in the program gain access to a deeper, more inclusive talent pool that better reflects the growing diversity of today’s workforce. Registered apprenticeships for technology jobs also offer businesses the opportunity to upskill and reskill current workers, while connecting new candidates to promising careers in IT.
