Acro Media offering $4000 tuition subsidy towards College’s new Certificate

As one of North America’s premier users of Drupal we have worked together with Okanagan College to develop a new Drupal Web Developer Certificate that will be offered weekday evenings beginning January 8, 2018.

We are so anxious to find coding talent that we are putting our own money on the line in hopes of addressing our HR recruitment challenges.

“We need great candidates for interesting and exciting CMS work in Kelowna and are looking forward to hiring graduates from this program,” says Shae Inglis, CEO of Acro Media. “In fact, Acro Media is going beyond just supporting the OC program. We are also sponsoring a contest to provide a $4,000 tuition award to a talented student who submits the best code sample before Dec. 15 for the January intake of the course. Contest details are available at: Contest deadline closed.

“The Drupal Web Developer Certificate will give students the knowledge, practice and experience to find great jobs and careers in the Okanagan. This exciting Okanagan College and industry partnership has resulted in a program that will provide companies with highly qualified and work-ready graduates,” explains Dennis Silvestrone, Okanagan College’s Director of Continuing Studies and Corporate Training.

Taught by industry experts, this 240-hour Certificate will be offered at the Okanagan Innovation Centre in downtown Kelowna Mondays through Thursdays from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Students applying for the Drupal Web Developer Certificate are financial aid and student loan eligible.
