Microsoft Releases Public Training Program ‘Elevate America’

February 24, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – Microsoft has released details on their new ‘Elevate America’ program, which will aim to offer technological skills to 2 million Americans, to help them to develop their abilities in an increasingly technological world.

The measure will be placed alongside government programs, which will begin teaching workers the skills they need for their own work, and increasing jobs within the technology field.

According to a blog post published by Microsoft’s Pamela Passman:

“Jobs in every industry at every level need basic proficiency with computers and other digital technologies. By providing workers and governments with free and low-cost access to technology training and certifications, Elevate America can help workers succeed in this rapidly changing economy.”

The program is planned to be funded by the workforce training portion of the recently passed US Stimulus, and will not provide any profits for Microsoft. It is hoped to assist in providing public growth by preparing workers for the many jobs that are expected to become more computer-based.
