Pilot Cohorts – New York City

During Tech Jobs Academy's 2016 pilot iteration in New York City, Microsoft collaborated with the Mayor's Tech Talent Pipeline and the New York City College of Technology to deliver Cloud and Server Administration skills to 50 trainees who had been carefully selected from over 500 applicants.

Participants gained deep subject matter expertise and had the opportunity to become Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCP), Microsoft Certified Solutions Associates (MCSA), and Microsoft Certified Solutions Experts (MCSE), which have been shown to increase employability and compensation. In addition to the specific IT skills gained, graduates developed strong collaboration skills and technical writing abilities.
