About VetsinTech

VetsinTech Academy

Here at VetsinTech we feel passionate about the quality of education of our transitioning military, veterans and spouses of either. We are focused on those vets that already have shown an interest and aptitude for working in the tech industry.

Classes:

  • Cybersecurity – Get certified and land an in-demand role in Cyber Security.
  • Web Development – Learn the basic fundamentals of web site design.
  • Data Science – Build machine learning models to predict business outcomes.
  • Cloud Computing – Learn how to secure and deploy cloud-based computing services and resources.
  • AI/ML – Write programs that can access data and use it to learn for themselves.
  • Sales – Pursue a career as a sales professional in the technology industry.

Employment

Many returning vets although very highly skilled, need some help translating  their military skills to the private sector world. In other situations, some veterans will need industry specific and technical training – hence our focus on education. Through various partnerships we can help Vets with resume writing and interview skills, connecting them with mentors to help them find direction in the tech world, providing job matching services and job fairs with local tech companies. Along these lines we have established relationships with corporate talent representatives and recruiters who would work VetsinTech to help veterans get hired. We will also work with local companies to better understand what they need and continuously tune the ViT program to accelerate the identification, training and matching of new Vets to new positions.
