FRANKFORT, KY (FOX19) – Kentucky will join forces with Microsoft to provide free technology training to thousands of people seeking new job skills and resources. Governor Steve Beshear announced the partnership Tuesday.
Microsoft® Elevate America, will provide Kentucky with 20,250 vouchers for free online training and certification. Those vouchers will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
In an effort to develop marketable technology skills for those trying to re-establish their employment, Gov. Beshear has reserved the first distribution of vouchers for unemployed workers across the state.
"In this knowledge-based economy, computer skills are essential to the progression of any profession," said Gov. Beshear. "This initiative will not only assist job seekers who are looking to retool their skill sets to compete for higher-skilled, higher-paying jobs, but it will also ensure Kentucky's 21st century workforce continues to meet the needs of new and existing businesses."
The program's computer training ranges from basic skills, which do not require a voucher, to advanced classes that allow participants to earn Microsoft certification. Given the various levels of training available, residents can sign up for multiple courses; however, they can only sign up for one course at a time and must complete one before attempting to enroll in another.
"Elevate America was created to equip people with the crucial skills necessary to get a job in today's competitive workplace," said Microsoft's Thomas-Flynn "We believe that this type of public-private partnership will play an important role in rebuilding Kentucky and the nation's economy by offering immediate, no-cost access to the technology skills training and certifications that individuals need and employers are looking for."
Microsoft will work with Kentucky's Office of Employment and Training, an agency of the Education and Workforce Development Cabinet, to distribute 9,000 vouchers for online training, 9,000 vouchers for online testing and 2,250 vouchers for more advanced training courses.
Vouchers will be reserved for people who are unemployed for the first two weeks of the program. Then the program will opened up to others to register. Vouchers will be distributed first in, first out.
The Web-based program can be accessed from any Internet-connected computer. People without computers or Internet access in their homes can visit their local One-Stop Career Center, Adult Education Center or public library to use the computer services available at those locations. Certification exams must be taken at a proctored Certiport location. KCTCS will provide these testing sites at 13 of its campuses across the state, at no charge to the participant.
In order to take advantage of a voucher, you must be a resident of Kentucky.
Employees of Kentucky State Government are not eligible.
Applicants under 18 years of age must provide parental consent to participate.
