Omaha – Technology professionals are invited to attend IT Professional Academy hosted by the College of Information Science and Technology (IS&T) at the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO).
IT Academy sessions will be held on Thursday, September 20th, and Friday, September 21st, at the Peter Kiewit Institute building located at 1110 S. 67th St on UNO’s Scott Campus.
The program, initiated in August 2011, leverages the intellectual expertise available at the university to offer high quality, affordable, locally accessible, cutting edge IT education and training in areas relevant to the local information technology industry.
It combines current research with problems of practical interest to IT professionals. Each session includes specific learning outcomes that are met by theoretical discussions, problem-solving activities, and/or practical in-class applications of the session topics.
Attendees can apply these training sessions toward their certifications by self-reporting professional development units (PDUs) or continuing education units (CEUs). Most organizations and certification agencies such as PMI recognize relevant educational activities or programs offered by universities.
