CompTIA launches website for Troops To Tech Careers Program

CompTIA has expanded its Troops to Tech Careers program by launching a website and corporate employment registry.

CompTIA’s Troops to Tech Careers program seeks to assist the veterans from military to have a transition to civilian life by providing a pathway to careers in IT through education, certification and employment.

“With the accelerated return of our veterans from Afghanistan beginning in earnest this year and next, and the anticipated discharge of tens of thousands of Iraqi vets, the public workforce system will be taxed like never before,” said Todd Thibodeaux, president and chief executive officer, CompTIA. “Troops to Tech Careers is one way in which the IT industry is doing its part to ease this burden by offering a chance at a new start to the men and women who have done so much to keep our country secure, safe and free.”
