Introducing the new West Valley Microsoft Datacenter Academy
In collaboration with local education partners, Estrella Mountain Community College and Glendale Community College, Microsoft partnered to open a West Valley Datacenter Academy to help job seekers and students pursue these in-demand technology skills. With more than a dozen Datacenter Academy locations globally, Microsoft provides education partners with guidance on curriculum; donations of servers, laptops, and datacenter equipment for labs; and opportunities for mentorship and work experience in Microsoft datacenters. The education providers then use the Datacenter Academy program to help build digital skills and provide career pathways in the growing information technology sector for residents of communities where Microsoft operates. If you know a job seeker or student who may be interested in learning more about becoming a local datacenter technician or is interested in other roles in IT, please visit the Microsoft Datacenter Academy website or contact one of our following education partners.
