NCWIT works with computing and technical leaders in the region to identify skill sets and training opportunities that align with employers’ needs. The end goal is to offer a diverse menu of online and in-person choices for women of the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing (AiC) Community as well as those who qualify through the Alabama Digital Skills Pilot, regardless of their location or schedule. These opportunities will be paid through via the Digital Skills grant at no cost to the participant.

By early 2020, NCWIT will announce additional technical training opportunities for qualifying women. Among the current courses to be offered are Software Engineering, Data Analytics, Data Science, UX/ UI, Project Management; more will be offered in the future.*
