SkillStorm, a tech talent accelerator that hires, trains, certifies, and deploys IT talent, and the City University of New York (CUNY), the nation’s largest urban public university, announced their partnership this week to offer free self-paced, online tech training courses for CUNY students and alumni.
“This partnership is a critical addition to CUNY’s Upskilling Initiative, an effort launched during the pandemic to connect New Yorkers to the skills needed to launch resilient, upwardly mobile careers.”
SkillStorm’s mentor-supported micro courses are designed to provide CUNY students and alumni with more accessible pathways to obtain in-demand tech skills. The micro courses provide introductions into AWS, Salesforce, Pega, ServiceNow, CyberSecurity, and more. CUNY students and graduates from all backgrounds, with little-to-no prior coding experience, can access SkillStorm’s micro courses and get support from industry mentors along the way.

We are delighted to be working with CUNY to provide more pathways into today’s most in-demand tech skills to help prepare a highly skilled and diverse workforce for the future. We hire hundreds of college graduates and veterans each year and look forward to being one of many companies hiring talented and skilled CUNY graduates through this program.”
