Vermont HITEC 

Vermont Healthcare Information Technology Education Center exists to create employment opportunities for underemployed and unemployed Vermont and New Hampshire workers in the fields of health care, information technology and advanced manufacturing by providing the tuition-free education and training that leads directly to guaranteed jobs. Through the use of its innovative ITAR model in workforce development, this non-profit has educated and placed 400 unemployed and underemployed workers in new local jobs. The model encompasses every aspect of workforce development, including recruitment, selection, curriculum development, education, training and employment and mentoring.

Opportunities exist to expand Vermont HITEC’s model on both the state and national level. HITEC is currently working with Fletcher Allen Health Care of Burlington and Hypertherm of Hanover, New Hampshire, to expand its ITAR model to create workforce development institutes within these organizations. HITEC has also partnered with the River Valley Community College of Claremont New Hampshire to take the ITAR statewide throughout the state. Through its Vermont Information Technology Partnership program, HITEC provides local college and high school students internship opportunities to complete IT project work in industry prior to graduation.
