DESTA has partnered with Una Buro to launch Tech Buro is a first of its kind data analyst and cloud tech paid training program, an experiential learning program giving participants access to an 18-week training program in data management and cloud solutions. As a part of DESTA’s employability program, Tech Buro offers participants 30 hours a week of paid training. Participants will spend 10 hours per week in structured data courses, and 20 hours per week implementing data systems on actual client files, under their instructor’s careful supervision. Participants’ tasks will increase in complexity and scope as their skills are developed, and their salary will increase in tandem.
DESTA and Una Buro will assist with job placement in data analyst, solutions analyst, cloud specialist, and cloud consultant positions. Average annual salaries range from $30,000 to $50,000, depending on skill level, with certified consultants earning upwards of $75,000.
According to the forecasts of the World Economic Forum, by 2020 data analysts will be in high demand in companies around the world. The LinkedIn Workforce Report maintains that, in the USA, demand for these professional figures has grown six fold compared to five years ago, and data analysts will continue to be the most sought after profiles over the next five years. This is further confirmed by IBM, which claims that the annual demand for data scientists, data developers and data engineers will lead to 700,000 new recruitments by 2020.1
The first cohort started in October of 2018.
