Automation Workz, Seeking to Create an Inner City "Wakanda," Is the First Cybersecurity Reskilling Firm to Secure US Black Chamber Certification


DETROIT, Nov. 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- HBCUs prove culturally relevant education can deliver career and mental success as they have produced 16% of Blacks with Bachelor's degrees and 25% of Blacks with STEM degrees. This same "Black Effect" occurs with Automation Workz, a cybersecurity reskilling firm in Detroit, specializing in IoT, network engineering, cybersecurity, software programming and soon data analytics.

Automation Workz learners, mainly Black front-liners, secure no-cost training funded by workforce development dollars. Normally, workforce development trainees have secured salaries averaging $38,000. "Automation Workz is turning the system on its head, assisting learners to secure positions earning an average salary of $67,250, often doubling their incomes. Just last week we had a learner begin a new job earning $130,000," states Ida Byrd-Hill, CEO.

"Despite the many barriers our learners face, we achieve learner completion rates of 75%, a lot higher than the 15% rate of community colleges. We provide enormous support beginning with our personalized admissions process, weekend/evening instructor office hours and hands-on video gaming/digital simulation lessons."

Ida Byrd-Hill declares, "Automation Workz secured the US Black Chamber of Commerce By Black certification to signal to potential learners we are utilizing the "Black effect" to provide a supportive HBCU- like environment for those pursuing tech certification. Front-liners no longer need to be afraid to pursue a tech career. We coach them from basic tech skills through rigorous Cisco/Python/Linux certification training."

"We are hoping the By Black certification is, also, a signal to corporations to hire our corp of highly credentialed Black tech workers as we create a real-life 'Wakanda' of emerging technology within the residential neighborhoods of inner cities, like Detroit," states Ida Byrd-Hill, CEO.
