Latino businessman trains thousands to use computers
Juan Rodríguez is the founder and CEO of Integrated Digital Technologies Corp., which in 16 years has trained more than 27,000 people in computers and information technology in California.
“Our public are the people who work in IT in corporations, and also individuals who need education in computers at all levels, from the basics to the most advanced and recent” technologies, Rodrígueztold Efe.
At the company headquarters in Glendale and Santa Ana, the 45-year-old Venezuelan has worked to make his company one of the very few centers for education and training supported by almost all the computer giants.
“We’re practically the only institution in California that offers a curriculum that’s 100 percent authorized by Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, Novell, Cisco, CWNP, Comptia, EC-Council, SCP, Intel, EMC, as well as other well-known providers. That gives us a good bit of strength that the corporations have come to appreciate,” he said.
IDT has billed more than $30 million, a figure that is rather significant for an immigrant like Rodríguez who came to the United States in 1984, when he was just turning 18.
