Thanks to the Hire our Heroes program to make free cybersecurity training accessible to qualified veterans, I have recently obtained my CompTIA Security+ certification. I have been able to use the materials provided to through this free training program to learn, certify, and obtain a job in a more desirable job field than I was previously working in. Without HoH, I would have only had the options of self-study or going back to college to obtain this knowledge. Hire our Heroes program made it much more feasible for me to re-train and obtain a job in a fast paced career of my choosing. I cannot show my thanks enough, and I didn't spend a dime. HoH is doing great work.

Hire Our Heroes, has given me a great opportunity to get more needed work-related skills to be successful in my field of choice. This has allowed me to save numerous dollars on certification preparation materials, which I have take full advantage of, and will continue to do so. Utilizing this opportunity, I have successfully passed the (ISACA) CISA exam and achieved certification on July 2, 2018. I am currently utilizing the CISSP materials provided by HOH, and hopefully I will have another success story to report soon. HOH thanks for everything. It is greatly appreciated.

Very Respectfully,
Fred Jones III

The education benefit that I’ve received through Hire our Heroes has been extremely beneficial as I’ve been in the process of learning the Information Technology business and preparing for industry certifications. The new Skillsoft platform is top notch in presentation and the topics available are very broad based. I want to express my gratitude to this organization for the opportunities that this has made available.

Due to the insight and support of Tim Kirk at Hire Our Heroes I was able find the additional training needed for my desired career, and was connected with veterans in the same field. Your hard work in assisting transitioning veterans is much appreciated. Thank you!

HoH is providing exactly what transitioning veterans need: a little helping hand that can lead to a fruitful career. This isn't a hand-out ... this is advice, coaching, teaching, mentoring of budding professionals to prepare them for the civilian workforce. We proudly associate ourselves with Bill Hefty and his dedicated team at HoH and look forward to working with the in the future.

I have had an incredible experience working with HOH over the past 3 months. In this short time, HOH has introduced and provided the proper contacts that I have needed for years. That said, it seems that those who correspond with the program are truly vested in the interests and well being of our veterans and their families.
Thank you HOH
