Microsoft and Massachusetts “Elevate America” Program

Microsoft and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts have started the “Elevate America” program. Training will be offered ranging from general computer use through IT professional classes.

Details on the Microsoft/Mass “Elevating America” program…what’s available:
-Basic Computer Training
-MS Office 2003/2007 training
-Vouchers for Office 2003/2007 Certification exams
-Vouchers for MS IT Pro e-learning (Microsoft Certified Professional courses toward MCTS, MCITP, which is basically UP TO 5 online courses)

The program does not include IT Professional exam vouchers but there are other sources for discounts on those and the “second chance” program is still in effect where you can take the exam a second time FREE if you don’t pass.

All in all it’s a good return on 1-2 hours of time to fill out the forms and sit in your local Career Center for a while.

I have the available course listing, it’s two pages both sides and includes all of the courses/collections I was interested in.
