DETROIT — NH Learning Solutions, a network of 17 New Horizons Computer Learning Centers across 10 Midwestern and Northeastern states, announced a new program for veterans beginning on Monday, Nov. 16, in Detroit.
This cohort is part of the Technical Talent Development Program, funded through Automation Alley in partnership with New Horizons.
The Veteran cohort program will consist of a 12-week training plan that will provide participants with skills and certifications necessary to pursue and advance in a career in IT.
Training provided by TTDP includes industry-recognized vendor certifications for select IT occupations, including, software developers, database administrators, computer specialists and computer user support specialists and project managers.
“Offering assistance to veterans in need will help them prepare for, and find, employment when they return from duty,” said NH Learning Solutions CEO Mark McManus. “We believe this program is extremely beneficial for those who are currently unemployed, and is a way to give back to those serving our country.”
In addition to the veteran cohort program, NHLS has been an approved training provider for Automation Alley’s TTDP for the past four years to deliver training to those that qualify.
“Automation Alley has been a great partner by matching the local workforce to training and the opportunities needed to take their technology careers to the next level,” McManus said.
To date, more than 200 unemployed individuals and veterans are either enrolled, or have participated in, the TTDP-funded training initiative across various New Horizons centers.
