A Brief History of Baltimore's Tech Growth
As many of you know, Baltimore’s history as an East Coast port town has established a long tradition of blue collar workers. Just a few short decades ago, Baltimore’s economy was still industrial-based, and it was home to some of the nation’s top steel companies. But now things are different. Like other East Coast cities, Baltimore has steadily drifted away from industrial-based business and toward the service sector.
Today, the Baltimore economy is fueled by health services, financial services, legal services, biotechnology, information technology, and telecommunications. Unfortunately, this change from blue to white collars wasn’t always a smooth one. Deindustrialization put thousands of citizens out of work, and it left them scrambling to build the skills needed to succeed in the service-based economy.
Thankfully, the working class has adapted wonderfully into the Baltimore we know today. The city is home to several Fortune 1000 companies, and the city continues to grow as a center for computer-based jobs.

How Does ACE Serve the Baltimore IT Certification Market?
For Baltimore residents, this shedding of the blue collar image necessitates acquiring computer skills so that they can qualify for most jobs.

The demand for these skills means workers need to attend computer training courses to get the knowledge and experience they need to further their careers.
For those looking to get a job in information technology, the requirements are even higher. Most Baltimore, MD IT firms won’t even consider applicants that don’t have industry certifications.
