ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands – Community Action Now, Inc. (CAN) is pleased to announce the January 2019 start of the CAN Academy USVI, to provide workforce training that leads to certifications and gainful employment with numerous nationally recognized certifications in the United States Virgin Islands.
Community Action Now is a registered 501(c)(3) offering locally-based disaster management, advocacy, education and outreach in under-served communities. We serve the most vulnerable populations in the U.S. Virgin Islands. This current initiative will enable local residents to be certified in the following areas:
- Microsoft Office Specialist Certification (Excel, PowerPoint, Word, Access, Publisher, and Outlook)
- CompTIA A +
- CompTIA IT Fundamentals
- Entrepreneurship and Small Business Certification (ESB)
…and much more!
Community Action Now is an authorized proctoring agency. “Forever gone are the days of having to fly off island to take a Certiport or Pearson VUE certification such as CompTIA A+ or other IT certification,” said CAN Founder Iffat Walker, herself a native-born U.S. Virgin Islander who was raised in the neighborhood of Savan on St. Thomas. “We are bringing education to the most vulnerable communities in the territory!”
