OIC of America Today
OIC of America today operates through 38 affiliates in 22 states fighting for economic and racial justice through workforce development of underserved and underrepresented communities. Our affiliates are located in such diverse places as Los Angeles, Central Alabama, South Florida, Minneapolis, Silicon Valley, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Rocky Mount NC.
A recent survey of 24 of our 38 affiliates found that OIC affiliates trained nearly 12,000 men and women and 10,000 of them completed their technical education. That means 87% completed their education despite personal and economic barriers. Out of the 10,000 graduates, nearly 70% or over 7,000 people were placed in employment within six months.
Examples of OIC certification and programs include:
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Computer Service Certification, Computer TIA A+ and Network + Customer Service Certification, Telecommunication and Fiber Optics Certification, Sales and Retail, Pharmacy technician, Forklift, Industrial Maintenance Certification, Restaurant and Hospitality Certification, and OSHA 10 Certifications.
OIC of America completed a recent initiative entitled GJIF which provided employment and career pathways to nearly 1700 people in need of new or updated skills and certification.
