Providing Technology Training for An Educated Workforce

The Illinois Department of Innovation & Technology, through a collaboration with the Internet of Things (IoT) Talent Consortium, is providing free technology training (certification costs are additional) to Illinois residents in a variety of emerging technology fields, beginning with data science and cybersecurity. This State of Illinois Data Science Program will help Illinois develop a trained workforce that has the necessary talents and technical skillsets to be successful in the rapidly growing Internet of Things workspace. By helping create a pipeline of talent for Illinois employers, the state is addressing the predicted IT workforce talent shortage.
