What is Project PROTO?

One of the fastest growing industries in the state of Nebraska, as determined by the Nebraska Department of Labor, is Information Technology. The U.S. Department of Labor reports that nationally, nearly two-thirds of high-demand, IT-related jobs remain unfilled due to employers' inability to secure well-qualified candidates.

Metropolitan Community College has developed Project PROTO (Providing Realistic On-ramps to Technology Occupations), in collaboration with the Nebraska Department of Labor (NDOL), Heartland Workforce Solutions (HWS) and other community partners, to provide individuals within our Omaha metro community with multiple, accessible pathways to high-demand IT and IT-enabled occupations. Project PROTO is designed to help transform perceptions of, increase participation in and equip individuals for success within the field of IT.

MCC, through Project PROTO, builds upon an earn and learn model, encouraging fast-track training for employment and career advancement.
