Microsoft ITA will provide access to technology training and certification and will be available to more than 460,000 students in 463 high schools across the state! Students will get hands-on experience with Microsoft software including office productivity, collaboration, and enterprise applications development software. There are almost 10,000 unfilled jobs requiring Microsoft software skills available in the state of Georgia, and this program is intended to help students gain the skills they need to fill those types of jobs.

Five other states have already implemented statewide Microsoft IT Academy Programs including North Carolina, Washington, Virginia, Hawaii, and Louisiana.
