Tech training expert visits campus
March 7, 2018 LA GRANDE, Ore. — Eastern Oregon University alumni have access to valuable coding and software development training through a new partnership with Revature established in November 2017, and the virtual connection comes to life during a campus visit from the company next week.
Members of the university community can explore the program’s offerings in-person when a representative from the tech training company is on campus March 12 to 14. Tony Guzman, Revature’s director of university partnerships, will host presentations and answer questions from alumni, students, staff and faculty.
Revature offers tailored courses, online and in-person, that guide graduates through complete training to enter the tech industry. They work with employers to guarantee job placement for all participants who finish the program.
Guzman’s visit to La Grande signifies a kick-off to the partnership and an invitation for alumni and community members to learn more about Revature.
“It’s a great opportunity for the community at large, and especially alumni, to see if this is something they’d like to take advantage of,” said David Vande Pol, executive director of Regional Outreach and Innovation at EOU. “It’s a chance to get real-time answers about Revature and what this partnership affords our alumni.”
Guzman will engage with faculty and staff throughout the visit, lead discussions with current students, and answer staff questions. He’ll host a meet-and-greet presentation for alumni from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on March 13 in the Hoke Community Room. The open-house meeting includes an informational presentation from 11:30 a.m to 1 p.m., and refreshments will be provided.
He’ll also attend the STEM Career Fair in Badgley Hall from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on March 14.
