The Security Industry Association (SIA) joined a coalition of organizations in voicing strong support for H.R. 1733/S. 777, the Championing Apprenticeships for New Careers and Employees in Technology (CHANCE in Tech) Act.
In a letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, SIA and the other organizations (including ACT | The App Association, CompTIA and the Information Technology Industry Council) urged Congress to pass this legislation, which would make commonsense reforms to the U.S. Department of Labor’s registered apprenticeship program and generate job and economic growth. The proposal would create technology apprenticeships and help forge public-private partnerships to serve as intermediaries between employers participating in the registered apprenticeship program, industry, training partners and government entities.
