North­west State Com­mu­nity Col­lege has announced that the school has received a grant for the iSTAR ( or Inno­v­a­tive Strate­gic Train­ing that Achieves Results) IT Spe­cial­ist Cer­tifi­cate Pro­gram to run until March 31, 2016.

School offi­cials say that although there have been some ques­tions in the past on the grant’s sta­tus, it’s still very much active.

School offi­cials say the grant is designed to address long-term unem­ploy­ment, in some cases help­ing unem­ployed work­ers who had out­lived their unem­ploy­ment ben­e­fits and were unable to find jobs that fit their job skills.

The col­lege works with local com­pa­nies inter­ested in hir­ing pro­gram grad­u­ates.
