In March, Harry Virk and his team at IT services company Alpha Technologies celebrated their one-year anniversary of opening an office in the First State. How did they acknowledge the milestone? They opened an IT training and “innovation center.”
The center, located at the Alpha Technologies’ headquarters in Wilmington, will provide current and prospective clients the opportunity to participate in training sessions on topics, such as infrastructure and app development.
On Tuesday, Alpha Technologies held a launch event to introduce the center to the community and give them an inside look at some of the trainings that are being offered. During the celebration, which had more than 50 attendees, guests were given the opportunity to tour the facility, network with one another, and get a preview of the project management training module.
Pamela Evans, the company’s business development and client services manager, said the Innovation Center will offer both basic trainings and custom trainings that are made specifically to fit the needs of the client.
“We want to help our clients think outside of the box. We strive to give our clients the tools that will help them do their jobs better,” she said. “Ultimately, we want to further Harry’s motto of ‘on-shore, off-site.’ There are plenty talented people here. We want to keep jobs here.”
Evans is talking about Virk’s stated mission to combat the effects of American companies offshoring jobs. She hopes the new center will bring another level to the game for Alpha Technologies’ clients.
“We will offer courses on blockchain, Python and other advanced programs that will make our clients more hirable,” she said. “We will also be able to provide specialized training for individuals who may be switching positions within their companies and need pre-job training.”
Overall, the Alpha Technologies team believes their first year in Delaware was a success and they look forward to growing more and more.
“We want everyone to know we are here and we are ready to help,” said Evans.
