The New York State Bureau of Emergency Medical Services requested that SUNY Niagara Workforce Development conduct a pilot educational program to help train part of the 500-600 new Emergency Medical Technician in New York State in order to help relieve the current burden on Health Care Facilities across the state. An ambitious goal was met in conducting 15-20 courses throughout the state which were taught in an academy style class completed in a 30-day time period. Half of the classes were to be open to all New Yorkers who qualify, with the second half offered to train National Guard members.

In responding to this need, SUNY Niagara collaborated with the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Base to train National Guard members on site. The class began on January 19, 2022, and finished on February 17, 2022. The class graduated 24 students who successfully completed the course and passed the NYS practical skills exam. The class consisted of 160 classroom hours, along with 10 patient scenarios.  Members of the class will now be deployed across the state in providing relief personnel support to areas with the greatest need.

SUNY Niagara’s Workforce Development Program to Offer Google IT Training

By News Archive

May 8, 2020

The Workforce Development Department at SUNY Niagara is training individuals who are looking for new opportunities, especially those who seek to work from home. Registration is currently open for Google’s Information Technology (IT) Support Professional Certificate, developed by Google itself. The program can prepare learners for entry-level jobs in IT settings and graduates of the program could work in a range of environments from small businesses to globalized firms, in-person or remotely. The virtual program kicks off on June 15. Interested parties can enroll now by visiting http://niagaracc.suny.edu/wd/comp-training/.

This non-credit bearing course can be completed in under 12 months and prior Information Technology experience is not required. The program includes five parts which explore troubleshooting, customer service, networking, operating systems, system administration, and security. The course utilizes a dynamic mix of video lectures, quizzes, and hands-on labs. Participants who enroll through SUNY Niagara’s Workforce Development Office will be led by an instructor instead of a self-taught format which is offered in other regions.

“Because many jobs in IT can be done from home, presently and through the coming months, now is the perfect time to enroll in the Google IT Certificate program at SUNY Niagara. In our current state, the Workforce Development Department is looking to offer new and in-demand training. This particular course will teach people new skills and will help create opportunities for those who need to shift careers, in turn helping to keep our economy moving,” explains Karen Kwandrans, Assistant Vice President of Academic Affairs. Karen adds, “Another exciting component is that the program is eligible for tuition funding through Niagara’s WorkSourceOne.” Without tuition assistance, the Google IT Support Professional Certificate is $1,500.

For more information about the Google IT Support Professional Certificate or other Continuing Professional Education, community classes, personal enrichment activities, and non-degree programs to meet your career goals, call SUNY Niagara’s Workforce Development Department at 716-614-6236.
