Apprenti PGH Offers Pathway to Tech Careers
Apprenti PGH, a new technology-focused apprenticeship program, is working to diversify the tech field. Learn how their career pathway can get you on the path to a high-paying career.
What is Apprenti PGH?
Apprenti PGH is the first technology-focused apprenticeship program in Western Pennsylvania. It seeks to provide an alternative pathway for underrepresented populations, including women, people of color, veterans, people with disabilities, and displaced workers, to participate in high-paying, family-sustaining careers in tech.
The program recruits individuals regardless of educational or professional background. All individuals are welcome to apply. Initial cohorts will focus on software and web developer roles, with additional roles added in the future.
How does it work?
- Interested individuals complete an online assessment to see if they are eligible.
- If accepted, apprentices enroll with a training partner (Tech Elevator or Academy PGH) and complete up to 14 weeks of paid training.
- After the boot camp, apprentices complete 12 months of paid on-the-job training with dedicated mentors at one of Pittsburgh’s premier technology employers. Benefits included.
