Welcome to the Para-IT™ Training and Certification Web
The Mission Statement for Para-IT™ is the development of Business Soft
Skills and Business ITskills for adults
with learning challenges. These skills and
certification will be used for employment in any
sector of the knowledge-based economy.
This Website reaches out to adults
who belong to the any one or more following six
1) Adults with Learning Disabilities
Adults with learning challenges that may stem from a Mild Intellectual
Disability, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome, or
in some cases collectively referred to as the Autism Spectrum, and
adults with dyslexia will benefit greatly from Para-IT training
2) Indigenous Adults in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) The
indigenous population is the fastest growing cohort in Canada. Many
relocated in urban areas such as the GTA. Their professional
development needs are unique and need to be addressed in order for them
to reach their full potential.
3)Skilled and Semi-Skilled Workers
North America has experienced a significant loss of manufacturing
jobs. Many workers need to learn new skills in order to be reemployed
in the knowledge-based Industries
4) Senior Workers
are set to retire in large numbers in Europe and North America. There will be a chronic shortage
of skilled workers, which will require senior workers to delay
retirement in order to meet this predicted shortfall of skills and
5) Return to work Spouses
Spouses and single mothers need to return to the work force after a
absence of several years devoted to child rearing. The passage of time
has seen big changes in the work environment requiring new skills in
order to catch up with the fast moving information age.
Veterans Having served their country valiantly and
risked their lives so that the rest of us will have a safer future,
veterans now need training to help them to return to the civilian workforce.
Another group, consisting of highly trained newcomers from all over the
world, are also helped through a four month volunteer mentorship
program administered by the Toronto Region Immigrant Employment
