The California Department of Technology (CDT) has opened registration for its first Emerging IT Leaders Boot Camp (EITL BC), a virtual training program for entry-level IT supervisors and managers in the public sector who are interested in growing their leadership skills.

The EITL BC targets those who are serving in IT supervisor I or II classifications (or similar classification levels within cities and counties), those who have recently promoted into new IT managerial positions, and those who want to refresh or gain foundational leadership skills.

The program will incorporate a curriculum that focuses on the essential skills needed by the state’s emerging leaders.

“We are excited to offer this new virtual statewide training program for our IT workforce,” said Brenda Bridges Cruz, deputy director for the Office of Professional Development (OPD). “Our goal is to provide more expansive training opportunities for those who may not be ready for our IT Leadership Academy (ITLA), but who wish to grow as leaders, and those who come from departments with smaller training budgets. We encourage our local government partners to participate now that our remote delivery eliminates the need to travel.”

The four-week program will run from Sept. 20 through Oct. 12 and will include group discussions and exposure to critical concepts impacting government entities.

Registration will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, and participants must currently be serving in a supervisory or managerial capacity to attend. Interested participants may register via CDT’s open registration process.
