Mission: VeteraNetwork is a registered 501(C)(3) Non-profit training organization that focuses on developing technical skills of discharged veterans. Today's veterans have had extreme difficulty assimilating into US economic viability. Although many US companies have government mandates to hire veteran's, the unemployment rate for US veterans are at startling figures. Our plan is to arm veterans with niche IT infrastructure skills while also teaching soft skills to help them bridge the gap into the US corporate world. ‚Äč With programmable networks and automated infrastructure already here, 95% of the current corporate infrastructure industry doesn't have the skills to operate new age infrastructure technology. After completing our programs we believe our graduates will successfully fill that void. Our training methodology is based on not only online classes but a series of level up testing and projects to make sure the repetitions are being done to learn. We additionally provide ongoing technical mentorship and career counseling creating trusted bonds with students to ensure their success.

Target demographics: Reducing the rate of unemployment of Post 9/11 Veterans by 5%

I can not say enough good things about VeteraNetwork and what they have done for me. Going through a comprehensive training program designed to challenge traditional educational methods, I was able to secure detailed knowledge of networking technologies, concepts and their interactions. This was facilitated by their mentorship program and guiding me along the way. Because of this, I was able to secure my Cisco CCENT and CCNA certifications that ultimately led to me getting hired. I am currently pursuing other certifications that will allow me to become a next generation Network Engineer, and also now paying it forward and mentoring candidates as they follow my footsteps. This could not be possible without VeteraNetwork, and I am forever thankful for that!

VeteraNetwork offers a unique self-paced education and job placement service whose mission is to change the trends in standardized job recruitment methods, with respects to our Nations Veterans. In the past, if a Veteran wanted a job specifically in IT, Networking, or any Cloud Related Job, he or she would have to go back to school and receive a specialized degree in that field. This method could take anywhere between 2-4 years just to certify the education with a degree. With VeteraNetwork, all qualified Veteran candidates are accepted into a Zero-to-Hero initiative to train on all of the necessary skills, knowledge, and even corporate culture where needed. This is at No Cost to the Veteran Candidates. Our specialized training and education is simplified, and self-paced, and includes a Mentor with every candidate.
