Apply for IT-Ready

Start Your Future Today

To begin your IT-Ready application, complete the form below. Your location and proximity to an available training location will be verified and you will be redirected to the full application if you geographically qualify for the program.

Currently, we’re accepting applications to Charlotte, Minneapolis / St. Paul, Portland and San Luis Obispo, CA. Applicants for Atlanta; Cincinnati, Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; New York City; and Washington, D.C. should apply directly through our network partner, Per Scholas.

Once you’ve submitted an online application to IT-Ready, we review it. Training spots are limited. Our initial decision on who moves forward in the process is based on level of need. Typically, only about 10 to 20 percent of applicants are selected to move forward in the process. The list is further refined through one or more of the following stages:
  • A telephone interview.
  • An online assessment.
  • An in-person written Test for Adult Basic Education for reading and math. (Candidates must score at the 10th-grade level or higher.)
  • An in-person interview.
  • A criminal background check.
Applicants can be dropped from consideration at any point during this process. Candidates who successfully move through all of these steps may be invited to join IT-Ready.

All information must be completed.
