Upright Education and CERTiFi by Mercy College have partnered-up to provide award-winning career enhancement programs in technology. The new partnership will give learners a unique chance to participate in bootcamps to develop marketable skills in technology. The program offers courses in software development, User Interface (UI) and User Experience (UX) Design. Participants will be able to attend the programs virtually and can complete them in as few as 10 weeks.
Workforce re-training and rapid re-skilling are some of the most critical issues of our time. According to the World Economic Forum, technology will transform almost one-third of all jobs worldwide and more than 1 billion people will need to re-skill over the next ten years. Upright Education partners with colleges and universities to close the technology skills gap by providing award-winning courses that produce career outcomes.
Benny Boas, founder and CEO of Upright Education, explained the importance of these education programs. “Many of the fastest growing jobs are undersupplied which is an opportunity for workers who are looking for more secure careers. Technology is evolving at a rapid pace and it is innovative colleges, such as CERTiFi by Mercy College, that will be at the forefront of serving our workforce needs.”
All courses are fully accessible to online participants and offered with a variety of pricing models. For information on joining CERTiFi by Mercy College’s UX/UI Design or software development programs, connect with Upright's admissions team.
