Lorain County Community College offers Google’s IT Support
Lorain County Community College
will offer Google’s IT Support Professional Certificate,
a flexible online program that quickly trains students for in
demand jobs available in Northeast Ohio and across the country.
The program is organized by Google’s economic opportunity
division, Grow with Google, and JFF, a national workforce
development leader. LCCC is one of only five community colleges
in Ohio announced as participating in the program.
Google’s IT Support Professional Certificate aims to train

“Flexibility is important to our students. By offering this
program from Google and JFF, we are able to meet the needs of
our students while providing training in the high demand field
of IT support. This is a wonderful example of how, as a
community college, we can quickly adapt our programs to meet
changing industry needs and play a pivotal role in creating
tomorrow’s workforce,” LCCC President Marcia J. Ballinger,
The program is designed to give students the training and
experience they need to find employment in a tech support
position. Students who successfully complete the program have a
direct connection to companies by choosing to have their
information delivered directly to employers who are hiring. In
the Northeast Ohio region, there were more than 5,000 people
employed in IT support positions over the past year.
Additionally, the number of IT support jobs in the region is
expected to increase over the next five years, according to EMSI
labor market analysis. Individuals who earn the IT Support
Professional Certificate will be well positioned to compete for
entry-level positions in the field. LCCC’s commitment to
create pathways from the certificate to a degree will allow
graduates to grow in their field and increase their earnings.
The program will be available during the 2018-2019 academic year
with a rolling admission throughout the year. Financial aid and
scholarships are available for qualified students.
