About the School

ITC-L takes a very unique approach on preparing our students for the marketplace. ITC-L combines vocational school and boot-camp style educational practices to obtain the best of both worlds.

What are the advantages of this unique approach?

The US job market is transitioning from a manufacturing economy to more of a high tech service-based economy. This means preparing to enter the job market requires tools based on the new reality. Historically, the best way to prepare for the marketplace was either a traditional 4-year college degree or a vocational school. Now, this approach brings two enormous challenges. It doesn’t prepare the student for what the market needs, and the student is typically deeply in debt. Additionally, most graduates from the old system earn less than graduates that have certificates or licenses shown on indeed.com (Just tab on this URL and the comparisons of having a degree versus certificates)

Over the last few years, Boot Camps have been created to meet the need in today’s new economy. However, boot-camps mostly cater to professionals already in the field. Boot-camps can provide the training and the certifications. However, once a student graduates they are on their own when it comes to finding a job. ITC-L focuses on providing certificates and licenses, but also assistance in securing an outstanding career.

Because ITC-L is a licensed vocational school, we are mandated by the state of Texas to place a high percentage of our graduates in order to keep our license.

How do we do it?

  • ITCL bundles the most in-demand certificates and licenses into a 30 days course. With this strategy, the student enters today’s demanding job market with several highly coveted commodities.
  • Our educational methodology can best be described as a hybrid between an IT boot camp and a vocational school. Every course is taught using the same method. Phase One of each course focuses on learning the material needed to pass the certification test. Phase Two of each course is focused on “Real World” training, which is dictated by what the industry demands.
