Free Cisco CCNA Training for Veterans

Free Cisco CCNA Training for Veterans

From our “Support The Troops” department (and remember, our December event isn’t all that far away), this just in from New Horizons…

We have just been directly awarded a special grant for veterans who are in IT and looking to improve their skillsets with CCNA Cisco IT certification and training.  This is a pilot program and 100% FREE.

New-Horizons-Great-LakesQualifications:  Applicant must be a Veteran, and should be unemployed or underemployed.  Must have IT networking background – They do not have to already have their A+ or Network+ certifications – just have had some work experience.

I can take up to 20 participants to start.  Also – as far as I know, there are no other parameters (in other words, this doesn’t affect their GI BILL, Vocational Rehabilitation, VRAP benefits because it is a completely separate grant.)

The catch is, they need to be identified asap to begin training in 2 weeks.  This is a short-term Cisco Vendor Certified Program with certification exams included!

Qualified candidates must email resume to: and give me a call:  734-853-2077 so I can pre-qualify them by Monday.
