With technology being one of the fastest growing areas in the American economy. The IT talent shortage in America is more prominent now than ever. Businesses are struggling to find new or replacement resources fast enough to keep up with the demands. Step IT Up has found a way to help fill the talent gap and partner with businesses through our apprenticeship program. 

Step IT Up America™ (SIUA) is Xpanxion's & UST's accelerated talent development program that identifies and trains talent from local communities. As an approved Department of Labor Apprentice Program and a Department of Defense SkillBridge program, SIUA provides the opportunity to diversify internal workforce through hiring of veterans, women and minority resources to solve our nation’s technology talent shortage.

  • Define the capstone project to be used to determine if students graduate
  • Determine the demographics of the class (women, minorities, veterans)
  • Select who gets into the class
  • Pay nothing until resources graduate and start working on site
  • Observe the resources on the job before making a hiring decision
