MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The state of Alabama and Microsoft will work together to provide free technology training to Alabama residents.
Gov. Bob Riley said Thursday that through a program called Elevate America, Microsoft will work with the Governor's Office for Workforce Development, the Alabama Career Center System and the Alabama Community College System to distribute 15,000 vouchers for free, online technology training.
Riley said the Microsoft program will help Alabama residents obtain "crucial computer skills."
The vouchers will be distributed through career center sites in Alabama.
