What makes our program different?

This workshop will be a great platform for highly-skilled veterans to display their commitment to the best project management roles in enterprises. This course has been designed by instructors with several years of military experience. They will help guide the veterans on how to use their leadership skills gained from their time in the armed forces to pursue an enriching career in project management. 

About 200,000 US military veterans (both men and women) transition from their military service to civilian careers each year. Our program is specifically designed to address the issue of rising veteran unemployment in America. The focus of our course is to train them in the project management framework standardized by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®.

What You Will Learn:

Our Mission

In the US, veteran unemployment is an emerging crisis. Our mission is to provide all the assistance veterans need in upskilling and reskilling in project management. This will help them land top jobs in this field so that they can contribute their disciplined work ethic and skills to the progress of the organization they are working for. Unlike other courses that are semester-type college courses or focus solely on the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam preparation, our course will truly empower veterans to become valuable members of a workspace in the digital age!
