If you’ve heard of our Veteran Services Program (and if not, go check it out!), you’ll be glad to know that we’ve partnered with Hope for US Veterans to expand the available programs we have to offer.
This partnership allows us to pair qualified veterans with both online and classroom-based learning to get them career-ready. It allows for new certification and career opportunities for the veterans participating in each organization’s programs, and it opens the door for even more expansive offerings in the future.
“We are absolutely thrilled to partner with Hope for U.S. Veterans,” says Jeff Coruccini, CEO of LearnKey. “The partnership enables us to provide proven programs like the CNP Course for returning veterans who wish to enter the IT industry, administered through Atlantis University, which is a VA-certified premier program. This aligns perfectly with our online IT training, covering topics and industry-recognized certifications in Microsoft, CompTIA A+, Network+ and Security+, CCNA, Soft Skills, Windows Server, CISSP, and more.”
