Computer Training for Adults Offered

May 4, 1999 -- To help meet the huge demand for technology-savvy workers, the University's Division of Continuing Education will start a certificate program in information systems management this fall.

Continuing Education will offer an eight-course program through a new partnership with Republic Research Training Centers, Inc. (RRTC), a Microsoft-certified technical education center based in Charlottesville. The program will prepare individuals for examinations leading to certification as Microsoft-certified systems engineers.

Courses will be offered on weekends and evenings to meet the schedules of working adults. Classes will be held at RRTC's computer training facilities and the Continuing Education regional centers in Richmond and Hampton Roads. Financial aid for qualifying adults will be available through Microsoft's Skills 2000 IT Career Loan Program.

The agreement reflects a trend in public-private partnerships, said Dennis R. Parks, associate dean in Continuing Education, and Gregg Kendrick, RRTC president.
