Tech Apprenticeship Program
Oct 16, 2018
We're pleased to announce as of October 4, 2018, NexusLA has selected LANTEC as their exclusive training provider for Apprenti Louisiana!
Apprenti Louisiana has now started accepting applications from local candidates for the state's first registered tech apprenticeship program.
Apprenti Louisiana will be initially focusing on the highest-demand occupation areas identified by local employers, including software development, IT support, cyber security, and system administration. The program will be piloted in the Baton Rouge metro area in 2018, then scaling to other Louisiana communities and additional tech occupations thereafter.
Early hiring partners include TraceSecurity, General Informatics, EATEL Business, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana.
GET STARTED TODAY!
If you're on the career hunt, have you considered getting into the tech industry? Right now there is a high demand for tech workers in Louisiana, and the job openings pay well. Plus, employers are looking for talent LIKE YOU who have a knack for tech and can give them a more diverse perspective that helps them stay more connected to their customers!
If you're over 18 with a high school diploma or equivalent and are eligible to work in the United States, you can apply for this competency-based program today by taking the online assessment! Top performing candidates will be asked to interview with the hiring partners above.
Candidates who are accepted will be offered a full-time position paying approximately $34,140 (with benefits) prior to entering into the registered apprenticeship program. Apprentices will then enroll in technical training full-time for two to five months before starting their on-the-job training.
UPDATE: Louisiana Apprenti Program Graduates First Class!
The first cohort of Aprrenti students from Louisiana graduated on May 7th, 2019! This first class of nine students have been
placed in cybersecurity analyst roles with several Baton Rouge businesses. At their graduation, we received positive feedback from employers
on how well their apprentices are doing on the job. The goal now is to expand Apprenti across Louisiana. Apply to be a part of the
next group of apprentices today! Read more about the Louisiana Apprenti graduation and future plans HERE.
ATTENTION EMPLOYERS: NexusLA is looking for additional employers to hire trained apprentices at the end of the program. If your organization is interested in becoming a hiring partner, contact Genevieve Silverman at (225) 215-0087 or at email@example.com.
