Most frequent questions and answers

Yes, it certainly is.

This program is for vets who are serious about changing their lives and their finances. We appreciate that being away from home for 9-14 weeks is a sacrifice, especially for those vets with families.

It can help to think of the 9-14 weeks as an investment that will pay off for the rest of your career (and that could be 30+ years for many of you reading this).

For example, let’s say that your new tech job pays you $20,000/year more than your current job (a frequent outcome for many program graduates). Over 30 years, that is an extra $600,000. But when you start adding in additional certifications that program graduates pursue and the increase in pay that comes with those additional certifications and experience, your salary is only going to go up.

What could that increasingly higher income do for you and your family over the coming years and decades? Imagine how would it affect…

  • the type of car you drive
  • the kind of house your family lives in
  • the vacations you can take

Isn’t that worth a 9-14 week investment of time?

No, that’s not what we’re saying. The best route is to get your initial certifications and qualifications, get your foot in the door working and building experience, and then enroll in a 4-year degree program. That will allow you to obtain a full-time salary, build experience, and then get a housing allowance while you attend your degree program.

Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee anyone a job because that outcome is a product of an individual’s effort. Our programs are not golden tickets to a career. They are an open door opportunity that has consistently led to high-paying careers IF you put in the necessary work.

Program graduates are easily able to get jobs upon completion. Our partners’ programs thoroughly prepare you to enter the job market, but you will need to study hard and commit yourself to the process. You will be given every resource you need to succeed.

Not to mention, you will be working with a career services professional to help you write a resume and LinkedIn profile proven to get the attention of hiring managers, as well as help connect you to companies looking for candidates just like you.

You’ll need to speak with a Veteran Career Specialist to determine whether the program is a good fit for you. But, in our experience, successful program graduates have certain characteristics. We’ve summarized them here:

This program might be PERFECT for you if:

  • You see the opportunity in tech. You are excited about it. You want to be a part of this growing industry because you see what it can do for you and your family.
  • You know that you will take advantage of this opportunity, do the work, and change your entire career and income trajectory.
  • You can make the bold decision to commit to a 9-week program that will massively improve your career. (​You don’t have to make that decision now, of course. But, when you have all the facts and can see that the opportunity makes sense, you know you can make the commitment despite the temporary sacrifice.)
  • You don’t want a handout; you just want a chance. Once you get a foot in the door in the tech industry, you know you are going to be unstoppable.
     

This program is probably NOT for you if:

  • You want everything handed to you and aren’t willing to work hard to advance your career and improve yourself and your family’s finances.
  • You won’t commit to a 9-week program, most likely away from home. (​And it is “won’t,” not “can’t.” Where there’s a will, there’s a way. And if you don’t agree with this, the program isn’t for you. ​ )
  • Your “plan” to improve your finances consists of buying lottery tickets.
