LV-PITA, Professional Institute of Technology helping Veterans & Unemployed

LV-PITA, Professional Institute of Technology is offering FREE classes weekly to Unemployed and Veterans. The classes help individuals learn computer skills and job searching skills techniques. This service is offered to help our community.

 
PRLog - Apr. 28, 2012 - The Professional Institute of Technology is continuing to help the commuinity and offer additional relevant courses to the Las Vegas job seeker and Veteran.   Focusing mainly on the career changer and unemployed, LV-PITA offers courses in Microsoft, CompTIA, Cisco, Medical, Accounting and Bookkeeping/Intuit and Adobe.    Their programs are designed for individuals who need to take more time to learn an application than an 8 hour course.

While they do offer some fast track courses and boot camp style training, it is not the focus of what they do.Director Laurie Clemens explains, “I have found that most career changers and people learning software for the first time, need the repetition of multiple sessions.  Plus with the added benefit of computer based learning, there are multiple formats for each person’s learning style.”

Since opening in 2009,  the center has helped over 600 unemployed or career changers to learn software, and have succeeded in helping students find work.  Some students come in for a short two week course, and others are in school for up to a year or longer.
The center also focuses on helping individuals with disabilities and is involved with agencies that help the disabled such as Nevada Job Connect,  Bureau of Vocational Services and the Department of Veteran Affairs.

With the need for trained Medical Office Personnel, and Electronic Heatlh Records, LV-PITA has added a Medical Office Specialist program.  The first class of 9 students have all received the CMAA Certification (Certified Medical Administrative Associate) and one student has already landed an internship and position!    Instructor Kate White is so proud of her students, and does her utmost to make sure her students get a real hands-on learning experience.

Their Information Technology (IT) program works with many local Computer Hardware/Software Vendors and Technology companies to provide Internships and Job Placement Assistance.  Many of the previous students have landed very good jobs which help them to prosper and provide for their families.

Slade A, a student with LV-PITA states, "From the minute I walked into LV-PITA I knew I was at home.  Everyone was so nice and the instructors are fantastic.  They really make sure you learn the programs and not just the book, but hands on application so you can be successful on the job."

Mary, an Accounting & Bookkeeping student states, " I was nervous about changing careers and thought my previous background would fit with Accounting.  It had been so long since I was in a classroom, I was scared I might not do well.  Everyone was so caring and put up with me asking the same questions over and over!  Nobody ever made me feel bad".


Courses are offered during the day  and evenings, with session running from 8-12 noon, 1-5 pm or 6-10 in the evenings.  Most classes run Monday through Friday.  They are licensed by the Commission on Post Secondary Education.
