Transmosis, a nationally recognized workforce accelerator founded by Silicon Valley technology entrepreneurs, today announced it has won a grant from the Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation and Technology (OSIT) to develop a new STEM workforce training program in downtown Henderson. The program will build off Transmosis’s nationally recognized on-the-job (OJT) training model and workforce accelerator developed in Silicon Valley.

The City of Henderson has partnered with McKinsey and Transmosis to create an employer-driven IT Bootcamp, Externship, and Job Placement program and modeled after similar programs in other cities that have graduated and employed more than 1,200 students. The Bootcamp will be intensive, six hours a day for ten weeks and curriculum will be tailored to the needs of individual employers while professional mentors and an individualized action plans will be provided to each participant. At the conclusion of the program, students will be prepared to earn nationally-recognized IT certifications such as CompTIA A+ and Network+. The program will be located in the historical Water Street District in downtown Henderson and will target students who are unemployed, underemployed, or otherwise determined to be high-risk.

“STEM workforce development is one of my top priorities. The education and training students receive in these programs will prepare them for high-wage, in-demand, careers in the new Nevada,” said Governor Brian Sandoval.

STEM industries in Nevada, like advanced manufacturing, IT, cyber security, energy and agriculture are growing faster than non-STEM industries. Half of the available jobs in STEM industries do not require a four-year degree. The average wage of sub-baccalaureate STEM jobs is more than $50,000 per year, nearly 50 percent higher than that of non-STEM jobs with similar education requirements. STEM Workforce Challenge Grants seek to create lasting partnerships between Nevada’s STEM industries and workforce training providers focusing on certificate and degree programs of less than four years.

The partnership will leverage Transmosis’s history of providing Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) on-the-job training (OJT) to populations in Silicon Valley. The Transmosis platform enables participants to train at technology companies and gain valuable new skills and real world experience.

“We are thrilled to be entering the Henderson / Las Vegas region and see great potential for training local participants into high wage jobs in high growth STEM industries,” said Chase Norlin, Transmosis CEO.

Last year, companies in Transmosis’s Silicon Valley accelerator collectively generated more than $30 million in revenue, produced new jobs and capital investment, and trained a new set of workers in the technology field. The newly-trained workforce graduates went on to companies including Hewlett Packard, Cisco, Apple and leading startups.
