IT programs across the National Capital Region are popular among students in the District hoping to enter IT fields. Microsoft and CompTIA certifications are among top credentials in the District that do not require a college degree to enter entry level IT roles or some STEM positions. According to Glassdoor.com, average entry-level salaries are trending north of $40,000 per year, slightly more for credentialed IT employees.  Above, District residents attendI.T. Career Info-Sessions at Community College Preparatory Academy (CC-Prep).

 

Microsoft is working with nonprofits to ensure every person has the skills, knowledge, and opportunity they need to succeed in the digital economy.
