Free training available for unemployed and youth [Sun Sentinel :: ]

July 15--Free: It's an unemployed or struggling worker's favorite word.

Free: It's an unemployed or struggling worker's favorite word.

Workers who are unemployed or under-employed and youth out of school can find free skills training in South Florida through programs beginning this week.

IT Pro Camp: Information technology industry workers -- and those just interested in technology -- can add to their skills or learn about the industry at this week's free IT Pro Camp. The camp is from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday at Keiser University, 1500 NW 49th St., Fort Lauderdale.

The daylong training is for both beginners and IT professionals who want to add to their skills, said Alex Funkhouser, president of Sherlock Tech Staffing in South Florida.

IT Pro Camp attracted 400 people last year. "It's a great event for people who just want to get into to IT," he said.

Those seeking IT certifications, such as Microsoft technical certification, can take practice tests and even the real test for free. "These usually cost hundreds of dollars," Funkhouser said.

IT professionals have a constant challenge staying up with technology because it's moving so quickly, he said. "You just have to run to stand still."

Tracks include professional development, cloud computing, database management and server infrastructure. Register at itprocamp.com.

CareerSource Broward: Not a computer geek? CareerSource Broward County has up to $8,200 in scholarships available for out-of-school youth aged 17 to 21. Career training includes web developer, paralegal, help desk support, electrician, registered nurse and aircraft mechanic.

For more information, go to CareerSourceBroward.org.

CareerSource Palm Beach County: The organization will have scholarships beginning Aug. 1 that can be used for education in targeted occupations.

Occupations targeted for free training include a wide variety of jobs including: bookkeeping, computer programmer, dental hygienist, home health aide, machinist, physical therapist assistant, veterinary technician and many others.

During last year's program, the workforce agency issued 199 scholarships and $1.35 million.

There soon will be an online application available at CareerSourcePBC.com or call 561-340-1060.

OIC of South Florida: For youth who qualify, OIC of South Florida has a grant to support 62 low-income and at-risk youth ages 18-24 who are either high school dropouts or enrolled in alternative school. The program gives them the opportunity to complete a GED, or high school equivalency, improve their basic skills and obtain a national certification in the construction industry.

Training begins in August. Contact Nakia Jones, program manager at 954-563-3535, extension 218.
