VeteraNetwork is a registered 501(c)3 training organization dedicated to the development of technical skills for discharged veterans. Many veterans encounter barriers to assimilation into the United States (U.S.) job market. Although many organizations are encouraged to hire veterans through government mandates, the unemployment rate for US veterans remain too high.
VeteraNetwork will arm veterans with unique Information Technology (I.T.) infrastructure skills as well as provide soft skills to help bridge the gap into the US job market. Programmable networks and automated infrastructure have left the majority of the current corporate landscape without the skills necessary to operate current/future technology. After completing our program, graduates will successfully fill that void.
VeteraNetwork's training methodology combines online classes with a series of level up testing and projects to ensure success. Additionally, VeteraNetwork will provide ongoing technical mentorship and career counseling to continue a successful career trajectory.
