ITA Expands Professional Development Offerings

CHICAGO, IL—(Marketwired – February 01, 2018) – The Illinois Technology Association (ITA) announced today it has expanded its professional development offerings in 2018. The expanded course offerings include quarterly New Manager Training classes, PMP certification, training for Emerging Leaders and an Industrial IoT workshop in partnership with Intel.

Less than two years ago professional development was not part of the ITA portfolio. In response to member need, ITA built a professional development offering that includes full and half day workshops, panel discussions, webinars and certification courses.

“Many of our members aren't able to yet invest in internal organizational development teams,” said Trisha Degg, VP Talent Programs at ITA. “However, that doesn't diminish their need or desire to provide professional development opportunities to their employees. Through programs like our New Manager training, our members can get their employees the training they need at a fraction of what it would cost on the open market.”

In addition to soft skills training, ITA has added certification courses to its portfolio through a partnership with CompTIA. Courses available in 2018 include PMP, Certified Ethical Hacker, Cloud+ and Security+.

Throughout 2018, ITA will continue to evolve and grow its professional development offerings based on feedback from the Chicago tech community. You can view all upcoming courses and programs on the ITA website. Upcoming professional development opportunities include:
