NuPaths, an IT workforce development training provider, co-founded by Harrisburg University to prepare students for well-paying and in-demand entry level technology jobs in six months, was recently awarded state funding from Gov. Tom Wolf to develop additional pre-apprenticeship training programs. The funding will also support training 80 PA residents for high-demand, well-paying technology jobs.
NuPaths received $650,000 to design and develop four distance-learning pre-apprenticeship training programs: digital marketing assistant, associate website developer, software testing analyst and project analyst.
“We are grateful to Governor Wolf for this support,” says Andy Petroski, president of NuPaths. “This funding will allow us to train 30 pre-apprentices from Northeast High School as technical support specialists and 50 youth or adult pre-apprentices across Pennsylvania as IT security analysts, network technicians, digital marketing assistants, and associate website developers.”
