First cybersecurity apprenticeship program coming to Nevada

The State Apprenticeship Council approved Nevada’s first cybersecurity apprenticeship program, boosting the state’s efforts to reduce its skills gap, according to local experts. The new programs, approved on May 15, focus on in-demand industries struggling to find qualified employees like information technology, advanced manufacturing and hospitality. “The governor wanted to ensure that businesses have an adequate workforce, especially now with a tight labor market,” executive director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Innovation Manny Lamarre said. “A big part of that is leveraging apprenticeships and industries that are growing.”
