VA's New Pilot Program for IT Training

A just-launched Veterans Affairs Department program to train veterans for information technology jobs will be as much for older veterans — regardless of era — as for the twentysomethings only now re-entering the civilian workforce, the VA says. The pilot Accelerated Learning Programs, which are being held in several sites around the country, have been set up in such a way to expedite employment once training is ended and follow-up to determine longer term success, according to Rosye Cloud, Senior Advisor for Veteran Employment and Acting Director for the Office of Transition, Employment and Economic Impact.
