Designers looking to break into the gaming industry may have found a new destination for certification, as the Stratford Career Institute in St. Albans, Vermont, has announced that it will expand its already varied curriculum to include a video game design program in the coming months.
The new program was created to help prospective designers attain entrance level positions in the gaming industry and will include courses in such areas as storytelling, level design, audio work and player control.
"The video game industry has seen tremendous growth over the last 25 years. This surge has created thousands of new jobs for workers with the right skills," says the institutes Student Services VP, Michael Boulay. "(The Program) is a convenient and affordable way for individuals get the training they need to work toward a successful career in the electronic gaming industry."
The Bureau of Labor statistics predicts the software design, and by extension video game design, will grow by 67.9 percent by 2012 - making game design one of the fastest growing industries in the country.
