Tech Careers FastTrack is Designed for You

  • Self-paced to work around your schedule. You decide how fast you progress and how far you want to go.
  • Short, mini-courses (modules) that you can complete quickly, week by week.
  • Offered on-line with in-person support and guidance when you need it.
  • Linked to paid work experiences so you earn while you learn.

Tech Careers FastTrack experience is unique to you. If you’re just getting started with computer technology, you can finish FastTrack in 14-18 weeks (full-time participation, 30-40 hours per week). If you have some coding experience or skill, you can turn that into credit and finish faster.

The Tech Careers FastTrack program is currently funded through Nevada’s Project SANDI grant, administered by the Governor’s Office of Workforce Innovation (GOWINN). Partial and full scholarships are available to qualified participants. 

The program has rolling start dates every 6-8 weeks.
