VALOR Alert

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), in 2010, young male veterans, ages 18 to 24, who served during the Gulf War II era, including those who have served at any time since September 2001, had an unemployment rate of 21.9 percent (significantly higher than the national average- at nearly double the rate).

When you think of the brave men and women who valiantly serve our country, it is hard to imagine anything but a joyous, prosperous return for them upon completion of their service. You would imagine that they would come back, be able to use the Post 9/11 GI Bill to earn, or finish earning their college educations and find jobs fairly easily, but for many, that is simply not the reality.

An unemployed veteran is not an anomaly; in fact, during the recent recession, veterans and unemployment are sadly words that you’ll often here in the same sentence.


VALOR HELP

Inspired by the valor, sacrifice, and drive displayed by our American troops, Training Camp's VALOR program was created to help with the difficulty our veterans are experiencing in finding employment when readjusting to civilian life.

Vendor certifications simplify the hiring process by providing proof of baseline knowledge and the skill sets needed for IT jobs. Certifications that map to specific job roles are important so that a job candidate has the ability to immediately become a valuable contributor to the workplace. Eighty-six percent of hiring managers said IT certifications were a high or medium priority during the candidate evaluation process.

If you are a veteran, or a company that employs our nation’s veterans, we offer reduced-cost programs to promote this education that feature special training packages and online learning designed specifically to address the needs of our nation’s veterans in today’s economy. These offerings are designed to offer the lowest possible costs to assist in re-educating our workforce.
