Background: The Deputy Sector Navigator for ICT-Digital Media, Dennis Mohle, has a technical and education background.

Sector Need: Information Communications Technologies, ICT, and Digital Media are now integrated into almost every technology, industry and job. Consequently, understanding ICT and Digital Media as a sector requires a look at the producers and users of ICT and Digital Media.
Both users and producers find that the rapid evolution of technology quickly renders the in-demand skills of today the minimum skills of tomorrow.
Coupled with specific technology skills is the ever-increasing need for workers to exemplify the traits of teamwork, customer service as well as a general knowledge of business and project management. Finding appropriate and effective educational pathways to achieve an education that results in jobs and success in those jobs is a challenge to employers and students alike.
The ICT-Digital Media Sector Team is a first-ever statewide community college organization of education workforce professionals that are focused upon supplying in-demand skills for employers. Assigned to represent each of California’s regional economies and unified as a team, the regional Deputy Sector Navigators of the ICT- Digital Media Sector were launched in July 2013 to help accomplish four goals:
1. Supply in-demand skills for employers.
2. Create relevant pathways and stackable credentials.
3. Get Californians into Open Jobs.
4. Promote student success.
We recognize that we serve both business and the ‘learning’ public of California.
