Aspiritech Academy

Providing training and employment preparation for Autistic and Neurodivergent individuals.

Gain the knowledge you need for a bright future in tech.

Thanks to generous grants from the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (MEAF) and HAAPE, Aspiritech has expanded its training and employment preparation course for neurodivergent individuals through Aspiritech Academy.

Aspiritech Academy assists with the development of on-the-job skills as well as soft skills through virtual training. Through the Quality Assurance Training program, participants will gain a basic understanding of Quality Assurance (QA) by learning fundamental knowledge and developing basic testing and documentation skills. By the end of the program, each participant will gain a deeper understanding of what it takes to work in the tech field while learning numerous new skills to take with them as they embark on their employment journey.

Graduate Testimonial

I liked learning about the field of quality assurance work. I didn't know about all this beforehand, so I'm glad I took it. I learned I have good attention to detail that would be a valuable asset at QA work. It was so good I almost would want to share them with my friends!
