Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
To prepare veterans for the 21st century jobs, National Education Foundation (NEF), the national non-profit leader in jobs skills training announced a national program today to provide world-class training to 100,000 veterans, and provide them with certificates from the accredited and prestigious the State University of New York (SUNY).
Any unemployed or underemployed veteran is eligible to apply at http://www.nefuniversity.org/veterans.
The applicant will receive 24/7 access to top-quality Web-based courses and live teachers at a nominal registration fee. NEF waives the $400- $800 tuition fee. Veterans, who successfully completing the courses, will receive certificates from SUNY, enabling them to receive tuition reimbursement.
NEF offers top-quality 5,500 IT, business and management courses from the very basic to the very advanced. The courses include 60+ industry certifications ranging from Microsoft Office and Web Design to Internet Security and Project Management.
The online learning and live instant mentoring program has been found to be 25% more effective than classroom training.
NEF Chairman Dr. Appu Kuttan stated, “NEF appreciates the service and commitment of our veterans to our nation. Many of our veterans are currently seeking jobs. To get good jobs, the veterans need good training. Hence, we are launching this national initiative."
Former President Bill Clinton complimented NEF CyberLeaarning’s vision, “You are helping to empower tomorrow's leaders. I salute you for your ongoing commitment for creating a better and stronger America.”
