Review for Creating IT Futures, Downers Grove, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I attended the graduation of IT-Ready's first class of students in Charlotte. More than 800 people applied for the 8-week tech training program. Creating IT Futures selected 175 for in-person interviews and testing. A lucky 26 were offered spots in the program, and with the strict attendance policy enforced for the class, 23 made it to graduation. Eighteen of the 23 had earned their CompTIA A+ certification by their graduation, and the other five were expected to pass their certification shortly.

Graduate James Imes said he knew if he could get into the class, his life would change. “I love to read, learn and teach. Sometimes I would drive 50 miles to class and arrive with E on my gas tank, because I know if I could get here, I would be alright. This class became my support system,” said Imes.

Graduate Barbara Stephens recognized IT-Ready as a “once in a lifetime opportunity that could catapult her to the next level.”

“On the first day of class, I saw the other students as competition. Now I see us as a family and a community,” said graduate William Tolliver. “We all made these bonds in class and we’ll carry them with us forever.”
