I can’t say enough good things about Russell, VTS and Tri County Career Academy. Their LEAN and OSHA courses helped me immensely in my job search and during interviews, and were a key part of my successful transition. I strongly urge every transitioning service member to take advantage of the outstanding opportunities they offer. Thank you Russell and VTS team! -Tom Rees, USMC
They have the easiest and most applicable transition needs for many people who are getting out of the military. I am very grateful that were there for me and still are and are there for those after me great job!
They are helping so many service members transition way better than the Marine Corps TAP program ever could.
Russel and the VTS team bring their "A" Game!!!!!! I went to the "Lean" Class and WOW!!!!! I told my Commanding Officer about it and showed the Value Stream Mapping Technique and they want VTS to come and do a team building exercise (LEAN) with our whole command. They are the BEST!!!! Thank you so much cant wait to attend your next class!!!! True Motivator with the Soft Skills to implement Change in the transition process.
Russell, Kathy and the VTS team have done and gone above and beyond for the veterans, myself included.
I currently hold a professional certificate from UCSD in Occupational Safety and Health that started with the Free 10 Hr OSHA class from VST. I then received my 30 Hr OSHA, and 30 Hr Construction safety (EM385 1-1).
Now, because of their unmatched support, the UCSD certification made me an Authorized Outreach OSHA Trainer in General Industry.
Not only this phenomenonal and unique opportunity added valued training and experience, it also aided me in making my curent job more effective in the Marines.
Thank you for everything you've done for me and other veterans.

VTS is a great organization and what I believe is a tremendous benefit for all transitioning service members who participate. Russell and his team actually care about offering service members a head start on earning valuable skills needed for a variety of industries. I have taken a couple of courses through the VTS program including the LEAN no-cost course which provided valuable insight that I will utilize in earning my LLSGB certification. My only regret is that I did not know about this support sooner and had to move out of the area before I could utilize additional courses. Thank you Russell and the VTS team for all your support! Please continue the great work-- Jodie Brown
1/2 I took thier resume class, OSHA, and VA classes. They demystified all three for me. I recommend their classes to any veteran transitioning away from the
I am a U.S. Navy Veteran and Retired Reservist. Russell's courses helped me stay motivated when I was looking for a job. His professional and sincere caring attitude gave me the strength to keep my chin up and not give up. He is always giving 110% percent of his attention and time to his students and the veterans that need him the most. I highly recommend any U.S. Military Veteran's to sign up and attend his courses especially those that are transitioning back to civilian life. Bravo Zulu to VTS and Russell Levy keep up the stellar work, and thank you Kathy too.

It's my personal honour to write words confirming the excellent works of this nonprofit. My family and I have been so blessed and have greatly benefited by the works and ongoings of this fine organisation. I have no complaints, my opinion on improvement is "keep on keeping on"! Thank you!
The "Veterans Transition Support " team helped me directly to find a full time job .I`ve been employed for the past 2 years and like my work.
The Veterans Transition Support helped me find a full time position as Armed Guard using my military skills and experience. Highly recommended. Thanks
I attended the OHSA -10 and gained a lot of valuable knowledge as well as great advice. I recommended this course to my junior Sailors. I plan to take more of the courses they offer. An organization that truly cares about our veterans! Thank you VTS team!
I have been volunteering with Veterans Transition Support since 2104. This organization and the volunteers care about training transitioning Veterans success
I have recently got married to a marines and moved to my husbands duty station. I have to leave my own career to be with him. It was a supposed to be a difficult transition but because of the Veterans Transition support, I am able to receive additional training and certificates and able to network while searching on a new career. The no cost certificates and training assisted me on gaining certificates to fill my employment gaps. With me being able to focus on our new family and being with my husband, I believe my husband is more focused on his challenges on his career and missions.
I attended the LEAN Made EZ weekend course with Russell Levy JD. It was a terrific experience and introduced students to a great deal of relevant resources, especially for veterans and transitioning service members. Highly recommended for anyone who would like to gain invaluable skills that will directly impact your success in the civilian workforce.
As a Wounded Warrior Marine, Veterans Transition Support has giving me tools, advice, and skills in order to succeed the transition from Active Duty to Civilian. I have now received many compliments from interviewers on my resume, and skills I have towards hiring. As of right now, I have opportunities of work in many different fields because of the OSHA and LEAN classes and certifications I have received through Veterans Transition Support. It should also be noted that Russell and the rest of the team at Veterans Transition Support, will go above and beyond in order to help service members, spouses, veterans, and retirees. I thank them entirely in the help they have given me that has put me in the place I am in now and wish to extend my gratitude by helping them along in any way.
Veterans Transition Support goes out of the way to help each and every veteran that they are able to reach by building upon their skills and teaching new, valuable skills that will help to transition to the civilian sector. I attended the OSHA 10-Hour safety course and recommended it to several of my peers after attending. I spoke with one of the leaders about some academic and career advising and was impressed and happy with what they provided me. An organization that set out to help veterans and is successfully carrying out that mission.
Russell Levy and the Veterans Transition Support staff are consummate professionals who deliver top notch training and classes. I have personally benefited from the OSHA 10 Hr Course and the LEAN Program Manager sessions. VTS is very open and receptive to transitioning military personnel and family needs and produce quality support and services. I know of many success stories from those who have been impacted in the most positive way. I highly recommend and endorse VTS. Thanks for who you are and what you do. Keep up the great work.
