WHY

Uplift, Inc. has launched the first Detroit community program of the Cisco Michigan Digital Acceleration Initiative.

“People nor Businesses can live without the internet.” Researchers forecast 50 billion devices – phones, computers, appliances, robots, thermostats, automobiles, security systems, healthcare machines – will be connected to the internet. Today there are 5 billion. This exponential increase in devices have created the Internet of Things (IoT).The IoT is creating lots of high-paying "NEW COLLAR" jobs across information technology, data, healthcare and manufacturing.


New Collar jobs require IT skills documented by industry certification rather than a college degree. These jobs are paying $19 to $40 per hour, which is equivalent to $39,520 to $83,200 annually.


Uplift, Inc. is looking for 5000 Detroit residents to attend this and other FREE Cisco IT classes offered in 2018. The course worked is available anytime, anywhere on smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops supplemented by Experiential Learning Labs at 7 Detroit Public Library locations for those needing assistance with their assignments. These classes lead to NEW COLLAR IT job certifications.
