My company sponsors a special program for veterans in association with our two annual conferences. In the fall of 2017, we teamed up with TrainOurTroops and were absolutely blown away by their comprehensive program, their dedication to the veterans and their enthusiasm for finding any and all ways in which they can make their program better. The goal of TrainOurTroops is not to simply help veterans find employment, but to find good jobs and be able to build good lives. The sense of community among the participating veterans is palpable; the team at TrainOurTroops has a demonstrated ability to help them make the transition from the military to civilian work environments. The team is hip-deep in their work, making sure that their programs are on the leading edge when it comes to technology, education and career counseling. This is an exceptional organization.

This is a fantastic organization with a clear goal in mind. Their goal of training our troops once they return from serving is fundamental in our society. These men and women sacrifice themselves for our country and once they return from doing that they come back to a new life where they need to find proper jobs to sustain themselves. By training them in the right direction and giving them opportunities that they didn’t have before these troops are able to find jobs that will allow them to have a stable future.

My Company and I have worked along side of TrainOurTroops with local events!! We are looking forward to continue building a strong relationship with this amazing organization. We will be creating jobs, and promoting our support with our local vets.

TrainOurTroops has a strong foundation of placing vets in higher paying jobs, no questions asked. It's important to place those who fought for us in jobs where they can serve as a pillar in professional jobs.

I just recently applied and got approved. I looked at several of the courses and want to talk to my manager to see which certification would apply to my future in my current position. I looked at a couple courses so far and hopefully will be able to start setting goals for which courses and templates I can leverage the most. Now I just need to free up some time on weekends to start.

I was amazed when I found Train our Troops non profit. It is exactly what I have been looking for. I have always wanted to give back to our veterans. My father was vetran of WWII and two of my brothers were veterans. I have personally seen how hard it is for them when they come back to a normal environment. I think the training that Train our Troops provides can help any veteran get back into the workforce. I plan to donat to this non profit every year. Thank you for finally providing something useful for our Veterans....

I have only been able to take a few online courses so far - but I think they're very well designed and packed with information that organizations are looking for - especially ones that impact their bottom line - revenues. I'll take more as I get time - and maybe go after certification by the end of this year. Also - the templates that are provided for the courses I have taken are very well done - I am saving them and hopefully can apply them in my current position soon.

I am very excited to see how my donation can impact the life of a deserving veteran who is struggling to get back into the workplace. Train our Troops, by providing online training for veterans, will be able to impact the lives of so many veterans who otherwise would not have access to training to help them begin to rebuild their lives. I can't wait to get my challenge coin and monitor the progress of the veteran I present my coin to.

This is an amazing program for service members leaving service. The high impact video classes eased my anxiety in transition. I retired two years ago and after taking a couple classes I felt very comfortable speaking with small and large business leaders. The Train Our Troops model helped me understand I have more to offer in business. The business language was different however the principles in strategy were the same. I don't plan on stopping until I've gone as far as I can with Train Our Troops. I'm certain the classes will help me in the future. I'm telling my friends about this opportunity I hope they try it our!

Fresh out of the military and currently in an entry-level corporate job, these training classes are better than my Fortune 100 company's training!

Wow! I wish this was available when I transitioned from my first Navy career to the civilian workforce. There was a transition assistance as part of my detachment, but it was no where near this level.

My first two classes have been great. I've learned so much about myself, and how to become even more competitive in today's civilian sector. This should be added to every command's transition assistance process for all of our Troops.

Keep it up! This is making a difference.

Can't seem to find a job that makes me want to go to work every day. This training might help me to find that job. I'm ready to get started.

What an incredible course. I am a prior service Marine with Combat Tours in Iraq and afghanistan. This course was incredibly relatable and you can definitely tell it was designed by troops for troops. I was able to easily and quickly navigate all course materials.

After taking the courses and re-entering the job market I was truly impressed at how quickly I was able to get interviews and secure my first Management position. I really feel like this course was a spark that allowed me to be in the position I am now.

Thank you so much for creating this course and for everything you do for us troops!
