--CompTia to Develop a National IT Apprenticeship System

In July 2003, the U.S. Department of Labor awarded the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTia) $2,818,795 to expand the development of a National Information Technology Apprenticeship System
(NITAS) into an institutionalized, fully-operational and sustainable training model that will:

improve the productivity of American IT workers; lower the cost of hiring and training for American employers; and provide a structured approach to IT career development throughout the national workforce investment system.

Over the next five years, CompTia will provide funding of $3,795,072 to develop the infrastructure, IT Career Lattice (skill standards and work processes) and marketing strategies necessary to institutionalize and deploy NITAS for large-scale adoption by IT workers and employers.
By the end of the fifth year, almost 384,000 IT workers will have become Registered Apprentices and almost 6,700 employers will have become registered on-the-job learning providers. (was to actually begin around 2007; never happened. Remember, "Creating Futures"

Grant activities include the following:

complete build-out of four of the seven career tracks of the IT Career Lattice utilizing industry-based skill standards and certifications; implementation of a functional NITAS system using web enabled processes; and execution of Sales, Marketing, Operations, Public Relations, and Communications plans to integrate NITAS into IT employers and the public workforce system.

Benefits for American Employers

NITAS benefits for American employers include a learning methodology that:

attracts and retains high quality workers at lower costs; defines and creates a career path for mission critical skills; and provides access to a verified transcript of the applicant’s academic, on-the-job learning and certification records, and diagnostic reports regarding the qualifications of his/her own company workforce compared to industry and regional benchmarks.

Benefits to American Workers

Benefits to American workers include:

a structured approach to IT career development based on current industry standards; certifications and contextual learning; and a portable career transcript that presents all aspects of job performance to current and prospective employers.

NITAS provides a demand-driven, comprehensive and sustainable IT workforce model to the public workforce system to build its capacity and better leverage its resources to meet the current needs of IT employers, ensure their pipeline of skilled workers, and contribute to community economic growth.

CompTia is a proven, vendor-neutral IT industry leader that is concerned in improving the capacity of the country’s IT workforce.

"Donate $22 Today Campaign": Give Veterans the gift of their own Production/Broadcast Studios in 2017, Donate $22

ALL VETERANS, FAMILY OF VETERANS, AND ALL EVERYONE ELSE…. I believe the veteran population is .05% of the population (US). The veterans you can help are those that will carry scars for life. A one time contribution of $22 in comparison, which can save a life, is not effort by the VA. This is an attempt to assist where the VA fails. One a day is failure! Don't you agree?  Will you also please forward to others you know? Please help and thanks!!  RW

(A Nonprofit organization with a 501 c 3. All Donations Are Tax Deductible.)
The Veterans Suicide Prevention Channel has initiated a new campaign to raise funds to build
a production/Broadcast studio that will benefit America's veterans  and their family members.
Funds raised will go towards the creation of a state of the Art film and Television Studio
capable of producing 10 to 15 shows and programs a week.
The shows and programs produced will be created with the intention to promote good mental, emotional and physical health to veterans and their family members. These shows  will be able to be accessed online in the privacy of their own homes.

Imagine being able to do Yoga, Tai Chi and practice Mindfulness every day from home.
We will also create entertainment shows for our viewers.

Our plan is to recieve $22 from 1 million people. This would generate enough in funding to make this plan a reality. We ask the you make a donation. Make a creative video about why you are doing it and challenge your friends from the same family, group, company or organization to do the same. We will post your video Facebook and on our website at: www.vspchannel.com.
Veterans Day is November 11, 2016.
Give veterans a gift that will last a lifetime and work towards improving their lives continually.

New Treatment Study on Veteran Suicide and Families

There is a new study for suicidal Veterans and their loved ones. Many times families lack education on how their behavior can help avert or unknowingly aggravate suicidal thoughts/behavior. Families may worry about their relative but feel uncertain of how to help and need professional guidance. This new study features a brief intervention that contains four, 90-minute sessions with the Veteran and family member of his/her choice that aim to 1) educate families about suicide warning signs; 2) improve communication between the Veteran and family member, especially around suicidal thoughts; 3) involve the family in the veterans’ treatment to enhance support and trust; 4) provide families with coaching on how to assist their loved one to seek help. Veterans and family members must attend the intervention together. However, we do have a preliminary private interview we do with Vets and family members—they can do that individually if the intervention is not feasible for whatever reason. The Veteran must be registered with VA for healthcare to participate.
