The internet is becoming a basic utility. Many of us cannot live without it. It has created its own economy, the Internet of Things (IoT), connecting devices – smartphones, computers, cars and robots of all sorts – to improve our lives.
 
 
 
 
These connected devices are expected to grow to 30 billion by 2020 automating every manual function, eliminating manual jobs while creating new IT jobs.
 
 
 
 
 
 NEW IT CAREERS 

 
The Internet of Things (IoT) is creating jobs/ careers in cybersecurity, computer programming,  computer networking and data analytics in various industries. In fact, Workforce Intelligence Network showed there were 27,156 open jobs in the Detroit Metropolitan Region 4th quarter 2018.
 
To fill these jobs, A new job category, NEW COLLAR, has arisen. NEW COLLAR workers do not need a college degree. They secure hands-on training to pass a certification exam. Understanding the Internet of Things (IoT) is advantageous for job seekers at all levels in every industry.

This Cisco Introduction to IoT (Internet of Things) class defines the Internet of Things (IoT) examining the evolution of the Internet and how the interconnection of people, processes, data, and things is transforming. Students, both adults and teenagers will be exposed to critical thinking, problem solving, computer programming, computer networking, artificial intelligence, and prototype design. This class begins the process toward careers in Networking, Linux/ Python programming, Cybersecurity, and Data Analytics.

This Cisco Introduction to IoT (Internet of Things) class is self-paced with simulations, games, videos. Students attend class on a mobile phone, tablet, laptop and desktop computer. Labs and exams are best facilitated at Experiential Learning Labs at the Detroit Public Library branches with a physical instructor.

The Introduction to IoT   leads to employment as an IoT Installer.
