INTERNET
WORK ACADEMY
(IWA)

The Internet Work Academy (IWA) was created to provide remote work training to the residents of American Samoa and other South Pacific islands. With the installation of the Hawaiiki Cable, American Samoa has become a potential hub for internet based workers providing services to Companies and Organizations all over the world. In order for this to become a reality it is vital that our community begin to become educated in the various fields of internet based work.
The world is moving more and more towards hiring remote employees versus having their workers in a brick and mortar building. With this shift in the workforce it is important for the people of American Samoa to learn how to offer products and services that will meet the current and future demands of employers. Taking part in the IWA will prepare people at any level of internet proficiency to take advantage of the many opportunities that are available to them online.

The IWA provides training on what is in high demand on the current internet landscape. Trainees will benefit from learning how to build their fluency and proficiency in everything internet based. When they graduate they will receive an IWA Certificate that will boost their resume when seeking employment post graduation.

During training IWA will introduce trainees to potential employers and share with them what it will take for them to present themselves in a way to attract some of the worlds fastest growing companies. Multiple potential Employers will also be participating throughout the training, giving trainees exposure to job opportunities.
