50% off Professional Certification (PMP, Lean Six, Agile etc)

Silverbullet approved.

I have secured a 50% scholarship for veterans from my company for professional certification training (PMP, Lean Six, Agile, Digital Marketing etc).

Catalog is here: www.simplilearn.com

Coupon code is : VETS2017Fall

It is good till it hits the limit of 50 seats, then will get re-upped for Spring.

It is for single courses only, no exam fees (your GI Bill covers exam fees).

Professional certification should be thought of as PME in the civilian sector. It is a great alternative for veterans. Getting it completed will open up opportunity and get you access to interviews. Paying attention during the training, and actively re-learning civilian words for your military experience will get you language to speak to civilian hiring managers in those interviews and will let you advocate for yourself and articulate your own value.

Feel free to ask any questions here and I will do my best to promptly answer.

Make sure and do your research, there a slew of relevant free trainings in areas like Cybersecurity.

PMP, Lean Six, and Agile, is integrated in all technology-based jobs I've had since getting out of the military. This means they're highly coveted in regards to managerial roles. Thanks for sharing this, very cool of you to do so.

It's what I can do from the position I am in. The company is very military friendly.

If you are looking for buzzwords to explore, check out training listing page, with each broad technology category and a top 3 of individual courses in each.

https://www.simplilearn.com/corporat...course-listing

If you are active duty with about 6 months left, you should find out if the HOH Corporate Fellowship is being run on your base and do it. There is nothing better than a 90 day internship before you get out to concretely cement your transition.

Also, the training is all online, either self paced or virtual instruction on your laptop. We have heard very little complaint from the 400+ military Fellows we put through last year. It IS online training, but we have managed to make it not horrible.

Plus if you finish, it gives direct value in either new skill or resume bullet.

If you have the time, I recommend looking at the 'Flexi-pass' options if available (not all courses have them).

You get access to unlimited live virtual class instruction (if there are three scheduled classes, you can take it 3 times) for 90 days and access to content for 6 months.

It's online learning, but the company has largely managed to make it not horrible, and the live classroom is pretty good. If you end up not liking the instructor or the time, you can just take the next one available.

If you still have this running at the end of the year, I'm going for my PMP.

Changed companies here, this coupon is likely no longer valid, FYI.

If you are still interested, reach out on their veteran scholarships page, and hopefully they are still running the program.

Hope somebody got some use out of this while it was available (or hopefully still continues to be).
