Interested in a Head Start on a Lucrative Career?
Did you know careers in information technology make up more than 75 percent of the fastest growing occupations IN THE WORLD?!? Having the skills needed to be successful in these careers is a critical piece that FLVS is working to address. With the recent release of 21 new courses leading to some of the most in-demand IT skills and nationally-recognized industry credentials, the time to start preparing is now.
In collaboration with uCertify, FLVS has launched 21 Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses that give students a head start in a variety of IT career pathways, including programming, database administration, networking, cybersecurity, and more!
Each of these courses gives self-directed students the ability to both master the course content and simultaneously prepare for the rigorous industry certification exam(s). Companies like Cisco, Oracle, Microsoft, and Adobe all require demonstrated skills for new employees. Students with these credentials have what it takes to stand out among job and college applicants.
All of the FLVS test preparation courses teach the content and all of the benchmarks included in the state’s curriculum frameworks. The courses, however, are not designed for beginner students in that content area, as the courses are intended to be self-directed and focused on preparing for the industry certification. All courses include e-texts with exercises that a student can use to learn the content. The teacher serves as a course facilitator and cannot in many cases assist with content-specific questions. FLVS has carefully laid out the required and recommended prerequisites to ensure students have the background needed to be successful.
