Moulton Named 2018 CompTIA Tech Champion
February 14th, 2018
Washington, D.C. – CompTIA, the world’s leading technology association, named Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) a 2018 CompTIA Tech Champion. The CompTIA Tech Champion award is given out each year recognizing individuals who exemplify leadership in the technology sector, and who have championed policies that advance the country’s IT industry.
Moulton was recognized for his work in leading the CHANCE in Tech Act, a bipartisan bill that seeks to address the growing skills gap in the technology sector through expanding and investing in tech apprenticeship programs.
“It is long past due for government to act on a problem that businesses both small and large have been facing over the past few years,” said Moulton. “While companies should be taking the lead on training workers to fill the skills gap, the government can incentivize them–especially by lowering barriers to get apprenticeships off the ground. Together, we can tackle the challenges of a changing economy, provide opportunity for everyone to participate in it, and set our sights on what the workforce of the future can do. And then we can build that workforce to meet those challenges.”
The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) is “the world’s leading technology association, with approximately 2,000 member companies, 3,000 academic and training partners, over 100,000 registered users and more than two million IT certifications issued. CompTIA’s unparalleled range of programs foster workforce skills development and generate critical knowledge and insight – building the foundation for technology’s future.”
