MyComputerCareer Launches Short, Instructor-Led, Upskilling Courses for Professionals Working in Information Technology

Flexible offerings designed to help students fill the growing demand for IT pros in the cybersecurity industry 

Holly Springs, N.C. – June 20, 2023 – For the IT workforce upskilling = advancement, and advancement = more money. At its core this fundamental fact is the reason MyComputerCareer is now offering flexible, live, instructor-led courses to help IT professionals potentially jump into, or advance their skills, in the world of cybersecurity where 45% of the available positions remain vacant in the United States alone.

The Need

Currently the market for global corporate learning and development is an estimated $350 billion. In fact, a recent LinkedIn report stated “upskilling and reskilling” and “digital upskilling and digital transformation” is the focus of a combined 72% of corporate learning and development programs, which glaringly highlighted the need for short, skills-based course offerings from MyComputerCareer. The strongest IT professionals are the ones that continue learning and advancing their skills, and with the launch of this new platform, the IT-training school will draw from 15+ years of innovative instruction to deliver these new courses.

The Details

Two-weeks in length, the skill-building training courses will utilize MyComputerCareer’s landmark training platform featuring in-person instruction from some of the best in the industry in a live online format. By replicating the personal interaction the school has utilized since day one to over 20,000 students, it provides an unparalleled upskilling option for IT professionals. Courses currently offered include:

  • Cybersecurity Specialist
  • Cybersecurity First Responder
  • Cybersecurity Advanced Practitioner
  • CISCO Networking Associate
  • Cybersecurity Ethical Hacker
  • Cybersecurity Analyst 
  • CISCO Cyber Operations Specialist 
  • Salesforce Administration


Those taking these short courses will also gain know-how that will prepare them to test for key industry certifications. Add-on services like test prep sessions, 1-on-1 tutoring, and certification vouchers provide a complete learning package designed to help students absorb information in their optimal way.

One additional important detail. Because employers value and understand the need for a highly-skilled digital workforce, they may cover some, or all of the costs. 

The Quote

“After a lengthy and deliberate review of the IT market, it was obvious we needed to incorporate short courses into our rich product mix in response to the growing demand for skills-training in the industry,” said Tony Galati, founder and CEO of MyComputerCareer. “These upskilling courses are designed to help MyComputerCareer educate the whole student by rounding out our signature Information Technology Security and Administration program tailored to help students break into IT; and our Cyber Security Specialist, Cyber Security Engineer and Associate’s programs designed to hone and further advance IT knowledge.
