Abstract: While the Florida College system has numerous courses covering the management of data networks, our iNoVATE program fills the growing void for high-technology virtualization skills training. iNoVATE is in the process of creating the first Network Virtualization technical certificate in the southeast, and will enroll 100 college students who will receive network virtualization training over three semesters to produce more qualified virtualization technicians to meet workforce demands. The goals of iNoVATE are: 1) develop, implement and disseminate curriculum for a Networking Virtualization statewide technical certificate; 2) establish networking virtualization labs where students can access equipment to practice virtualization skills in-person or remotely; 3) develop and deliver a series of Network Virtualization Train-the-Trainer faculty workshops and instructional resources; and 4) create and deliver hands-on summer programs to help 100 high school students strengthen math and science
