While the initiative is an online-only one for now, Woz says that the plan is to offer brick-and-mortar campuses in more than 30 cities across the USA and around the world ...
If Steve Wozniak truly has an institutional method for helping more people learn new tech skills without going into massive debt, it could be even more important than that other little thing he did: inventing personal computers.
A Woz U spokesperson didn't disclose tuition prices, only to say that the "Cost of tuition would vary based on the student's program or retraining needs".
Recently, Wozniak announced he was launching Woz U, an online educational institute that aims to train students and connect them to companies looking for high-skilled workers.
The career services division will provide interview exams, resume creation and critiques, and portfolio development "giving you the edge you need to succeed", the website says.
How major U.S. stock indexes fared on Friday
The major index futures are now pointing to a higher open for the markets, with the Dow futures up by 37 points. USA stocks closed lower on Thursday as Wall Street digested earnings from some of the top financial companies.
Wozniak said people often are afraid to choose a technology-based career because they think they can't do it. Down the line, Woz U wants to offer one-on-one instruction to students and, later on, to offer its own accelerator program for prospective startup founders. "I know they can, and I want to show them how", Wozniak said in a statement Friday. "My entire life I have worked to build, develop and create a better world through technology and I have always respected education".
Headquartered in Arizona, Woz U courses will take place online and will largely be video-based with "live access to instructors and student mentors", the program's website reads.
There are no pricing details on any of the existing or planned features. The project is a joint venture between Woz and Southern Careers Institute, a private "for-profit" school in Austin Texas.
Other than being the forward face and marketing man for Woz U, it's not been revealed if he'd be involved in any other part of the school. So don't expect everything in Woz U to be free.
