A technology education programme has been unveiled by the Bermuda Government.

It has already attracted interest from 25 Bermudians keen to learn about the training and career opportunities in the technology and fintech sector.

The government has set aside $100,000 in its budget for the first phase of the programme this year.

David Burt said: “The Fintech Business Unit has laid out an education and training plan that enables interested Bermudians to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to seek employment with companies that are establishing a presence here on island.”

The Premier said the programme is designed to meet the needs of all sectors of the community irrespective of a participant’s experience level, and to “enable interested people to acquire training and certifications to be prepared and ready to assume specialised positions in the local fintech industry or related technology fields”.

The programme will also enable local educators to become trainers through a “train the trainer” programme.

Mr Burt said the initiative will also support the work of other government entities in affording opportunities for work in traditional positions that support fintech companies.
