Ranger College Offering Free IT Training

If you have always dreamed of a career working in the world of information technology, Ranger College is now offering a free training course that will help you get started.

The tuition-free course in CompTIA is totally online via Zoom with a live instructor.

“Texas is currently experiencing large workforce gaps in many occupations and vocational trade jobs, such as CNC machining and nursing. The CompTIA course will assist in closing the shortage of IT specialists,” said Dr. Matt Underwood, vice president of the Erath County Center in Stephenville. “We are honored to be part of equipping and preparing students to enter the workforce.”

The program, which typically costs $1,300, is funded by TRUE Grant and includes training in in-network trouble shooting, cabling, configuration and operations as well as course materials and certification examination upon completion.

Certification holders can pursue careers as IT managers, computer support specialists, help desk technicians and network administrators.

Enrollment for spring 2023 is now available to any Texas resident 16 and older.
