Top 12 IT Training Certificates for Veterans

Companies hiring tech workers are looking for veterans. If you’ve served in the military, then you have the right skills to transition into a technology job. Veterans are leaving the service with expertise in data security, SQL, security risk management, electronics troubleshooting, and program management. And companies that hire vets are seeing benefits as well. For every returning veteran a company hires, it gets up to $5,600 in tax credits, or up to $9,600 if it hires a wounded veteran.

To improve your chances of finding a job in technology, many transitioning veterans take on additional career training and receive training certificates. Learning the latest techniques in systems administration, web design, program management, database administration, healthcare IT, and related areas expands your skill set and gives you the knowledge to step into a number of high-paying tech jobs. And your chances of being hired increase when you include tech certification as part of their career training.
