At Momentum, we are committed to building a society where everyone belongs. Where we are all valued for who we are and where we are all given the tools and opportunities to build the life we want. We value diversity, and we believe everyone has a role to play in building a just and equitable society. We’re changemakers transforming our community for the good of all.

Momentum is building up its offering of tech training programs as a path towards empowering those from under-represented groups to cross the digital divide and land careers in Tech.

Who we’re looking for:
• You are great at explaining technical concepts in a way students can understand.
• You are passionate about working with diverse learners as they launch careers in tech.
• You have experience developing lesson plans to meet the needs of adult learners.
• You have experience in preparing students to take certification exams.
• A degree, diploma, certificate, or a professional designation in a related field (Information technology, computer science etc.).
• 3+ years of professional experience in the IT industry.
• At least 1 year experience or hold a training certificate in adult education.
• Strong interpersonal, relationship-building, facilitation, and communication skills.
• You have experience with classroom management and individual learning support.

Error on lab 28?

On lab 28 in the new Security+ 701 CertMaster Labs, when trying to log onto the Windows VM with Jaime I receive the error message:

The trust relationship between this workstation and the primary domain failed.

When logging in with Ethernet set to the default of vLAN_SERVERS.

If I switch to a different Ethernet selection, I can log in but don’t have any network connection and can’t do the lab. Is anybody else experiencing this problem?

I just submitted a ticket. I was wondering if anybody had a way around the error?
