    Initial Contact

    UMOS TechHire approach to training is built around customization based on company needs. In this stage, we document, analyze and determine your technology focus in order to design the most appropriate training.

  • Phase II

    Documentation

    In this phase, employers sign the required MOU. This is also the preparation phase for the delivery method of the training.

  • Phase III

    Training

    This is the core phase of the process. Participants are trained based on the chosen delivery method, which in some cases, may require employer involvement.

  • Phase IV

    Internship - Placement

    In this phase, employers provide meaningful learning experiences for participants. Employers also record and report to TechHire about participant activities during the internship placement. During this phase, two formal evaluations are performed. Employers have the flexibility to offer employment to our participants at any time during the internship.
