Can Your College or University Benefit From Partnering With NCLab? 

Absolutely! NCLab partner institutions make our proven and high-demand career training programs available to their communities. They enrich the communities they serve while delivering significant value to employers who are in need of qualified workers, as well as to individuals who want to improve their future and become Data Analysts or Python Developers. 

As background, our career certificate programs were commissioned by the Nevada Governor’s office to address the staffing needs of employers in Nevada and, after being validated during 2018 and 2019, are now offered at all Nevada community colleges, at the University of Nevada, Reno, and at colleges and universities outside of Nevada.

NCLab Career Training Programs Make Individuals Job-Ready For High-Paying Jobs.

Currently, indeed.com lists over 18,000 unfilled Data Analyst positions and over 28,000 unfilled Python Programmer positions in the U.S., and the demand continues to grow rapidly. There are not enough job-ready individuals to fill these positions despite high salaries, the ability to work remotely, and other significant benefits. In fact, McKinsey & Co. reported recently that over 56% of enterprises it surveyed are choosing to put in place their own upskilling and reskilling programs as they are unable to cost effectively recruit these employees on the open market.

We at NCLab have addressed this need by developing innovative self-paced Learn-By-Doing Career Training Programs that provide trainees with not only the knowledge, but also with the practical experience, competency, and confidence needed to qualify for Data Analyst and Python Programmer job openings.

Partnering With NCLab

We at NCLab use two primary partnering approaches with colleges and universities.

One approach involves NCLab training your instructors so that they can oversee, guide, and support trainees. Related decisions include whether the training is for credit or not; whether it is offered in a classroom or distance learning setting, or both; and whether enrollment remains open at all times so that working adults can start their training when it best suits them.

Another approach involves adding NCLab career training programs to your Continuing Education offerings and having NCLab perform all of the training functions; those include candidate screening; enrollment; and ongoing oversight, guidance, and support. This is often viewed as away to accelerate the rollout of the programs and a way to measure their demand.

In both cases, trainees have your career certificate and the knowledge, practical experience, competency, and confidence to qualify for high-demand jobs when they graduate.

About NCLab’s Career Training Programs

NCLab Data Analyst and Python Developer Career Training programs use an innovative and proven Learn-By-Doing training method to keep trainees engaged while providing them with the knowledge, practical experience, competency, and confidence needed to make them job-ready. They are for both people who are employed and are looking to enhance their careers and for people who are looking for a new career in high-demand occupations.

Trainees spend 100% of their learning time actively working their way through interactive course materials that consist of short bite-sized tutorials followed by lots of practice and self-assessment with instant feedback. NCLab learn-by-doing training is only possible because each of the courses has taken thousands of hours to build and because the courses are presented through a powerful Artificial Intelligence-based Learn-By-Doing platform.

As evidence of the effectiveness of this training method, a tier 1 university math professor who had been lecturing an advanced Linear Algebra course for 10 years introduced the training using the NCLab’s learn-by-doing platform and students became more engaged, liked the course better, and their average scores improved by 21% over the scores of previous semesters.

Following are short descriptions of each program.

Data Analyst Career Training Program

This training program consists of 4 or 5 college-level courses, depending on whether or not trainees have prior programming experience. Each course must be completed within 6 months of its start date, but it can be completed much sooner if trainees work hard.
