The New Demand for Mobile Content Developers         

More than FIVE BILLION and rising!  That's the number of people around the world who use smart phones.

Wake Tech is one of the first community colleges in North Carolina to offer a new, one-year diploma program in
Mobile Content Development. This program will turn out workers who will be well-trained to create mobile-ready websites, re-format existing websites, and develop apps to provide a rich Internet experience on mobile devices.

Also, two new certificate programs, iOS Application Developer and Android Application Developer, are being offered to train mobile app developers.

There's no doubt that smart phones and other mobile devices will dominate the market
in the coming years. Wake Tech has the specialized programs to prepare students and workers to be a part of mobile technology's continuing evolution!

A New Career in Ten Weeks   


"Thanks to Wake Tech's START program, I was able to pick and choose where I wanted to work."


Cynthia Motley

Forty-six year old Cynthia Motley is embarking on a new career in hospitality. After 20 years in the information technology industry, Cynthia was laid off and decided to make a career change. She learned about

Wake Tech's new 10-week START (Skills, Tasks and Results Training) hospitality course after visiting an Employment Security Commission office, and thought she would give it a try. It wasn't easy."I had to do a lot of studying and the exams were tough," Cynthia says, "but it was very rewarding."  Read more of Cynthia's story here
