Abstract

The technology workforce education system has changed dramatically in recent years, where the tech industry is offering certification-based academic programs to train future EmTech workforce. These programs usually work in collaboration with a non-profit university to provide specific skill training to different types of learners. In this Extended Abstract paper, we briefly highlight few of the most successful academia-industry partnership-based programs that have imparted important technical skills to thousands of learners to land jobs in EmTech.
