Edge Up 2.0: A Scaling Opportunity
EDGE UP 2.0 is providing training for 320 professionals displaced from the structural change in the oil and gas sector for in demand jobs in Calgary’s digital economy. In 2021-2022, students were trained in data analytics, full stack software development, IT project management, product management with a specialization in digital marketing, cyber security, AWS cloud computing, and IT network management. Students for the Winter 2022-2023 intake will receive tech training in Data Analytics with Clean Technology Foundations.
