OCtech, Google partner for free career training

Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College has partnered with Google to help local workers move into high-growth, in-demand information-technology jobs without ever leaving home.

Online Google Career Certificates prepare learners for well-paying jobs in as little as three months in data analytics, digital marketing and e-commerce, IT support, project management and user experience (UX) design.
