Want to help shape your online experience, whether it's gaming, chatting with friends or catching up on the day's events?   

Veterans and their families can do just that with free virtual training and certification in technology and digital skills, offered by NPower. 

Legislation would put refurbished computers into the hands of veterans

NPower’s free, virtual training and certifications are offered in tech fundamentals, cybersecurity, cloud computing, and coding, according to a VA blog post. 

“I absolutely love what I do and am grateful for this opportunity,” said Navy veteran Anthony Shaw, who used NPower’s training and internship program to lift himself out of homelessness.

Veterans and their spouses can apply online to take any of the training courses. They can speak to an NPower team member, attend a virtual information session to ask any questions, participate in a virtual interview, and start classes to launch their IT career.

Following 16 weeks of hands-on technical and soft-skills training, students are placed in a 7-week paid internship with top corporations and nonprofits for on-the-job experience.

Veterans and spouses can also participate in NPower’s mentoring, employment readiness workshops, and job placement assistance.

Apply now. Virtual classes start Sept. 8.
