Rochester, NY (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
Logical Operations has subsidized CompTIA training materials to help the Creating IT Futures Foundation and its IT-Ready program with the goal of training individuals with highly in-demand IT skills and applying these newly learned skills towards a successful career in IT.
IT-Ready is a nonprofit job training and placement program in five locations in the United States that allows participating companies to try out a full-time IT apprentice for six months. IT-Ready trains unemployed and under-employed individuals toward the CompTIA A+ certification for their first paid role in information technology — and an upwardly mobile career. IT-Ready is administered in the Twin Cities by the Creating IT Futures Foundation, the philanthropic arm of CompTIA, and in four other locations (Cincinnati, Columbus, New York, and the National Capital Region) by nonprofit partner Per Scholas, which is opening a new location in Dallas in Fall 2014.

“We are thrilled to support such an important program as IT-Ready, which is helping individuals learn valued IT skills which will no doubt start them on the path towards a successful career in IT,” said Bill Rosenthal, CEO, Logical Operations. “Here at Logical Operations, we are passionate about learning and the positive effect it has, so we couldn’t be happier to be involved with a program that is empowering more people with skills that help them live up to their own fullest potential.”
“As a totally free program for out-of-work participants, IT-Ready cannot succeed without the support of stand-out companies that share in our mission of helping those who lack opportunity to attain a career in IT. Offering learning materials for our students at a much-reduced cost means everything to the success of our program and our students. Their ability to achieve CompTIA A+ certification is really only as good as the preparation they receive. We hope to continue to partner with Logical Operations in other meaningful ways, and we hope that others in the field take note of the philanthropic example they have set,” said Charles Eaton, CEO, Creating IT Futures Foundation.
