To make it easy, we’ve compiled a list of some organizations spearheading IT training and hands-on learning in the Cincinnati region.

Gaslight Apprenticeship Program


Gaslight is the technology partner of choice for growth-oriented businesses. Their team of senior designers, developers, and business strategists work with companies to identify how technology can speed mission critical outcomes for internal and external stakeholders. They start by understanding initial concepts, then help build and validate ideas through an MVP, test it in market, then build to scale. 

The Gaslight apprenticeship is designed to take you from entry level to productive developer. You’ll work closely with the client to identify tasks that are the right size for an apprentice pair to tackle. You'll be doing important, valuable work, but at a pace that allows you to learn along the way.
