Technology touches almost every career field nowadays. And like most major cities in the U.S., Memphis has a number of employers who are struggling to fill hundreds of IT jobs that require skills training. With Tech901, affordable IT training can bridge the gap between open jobs and a motivated workforce, providing sustainable careers with upward mobility in terms of position and salary. Win/win.

Working with Memphis’ leading businesses, Tech901 created corporate-quality IT training tailored to fit their hiring needs. Today, Tech901 graduates are launching rewarding careers as they meet employer’s needs for skilled workers. Last year, 89 Tech901 graduates were placed in IT jobs with over 50 partner employers. It’s working.

Memphis is a boisterous city with a strong economic framework that provides a solid support for business and career growth. Proud of our grit and non-stop grind, the city continues to prove that we are truly better together.
