The San Diego Career Center Network, in partnership with Microsoft and with assistance from the U.S. Department of Labor, is proud to offer U.S. military Veterans and their eligible Covered Spouses, vouchers for no-cost IT skills training and certification designed to help build the technology skills employers are looking for.
More than half of today’s jobs across all industries require some technology skills, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that will reach 77 percent in the next decade. Whether you are interested in building your Windows and Office skills to further your career or grow your IT Professional skills for a career in technology, we have resources that can help.
Veterans and their eligible Covered Spouses can request a no-cost voucher that will help build skills in selected Microsoft technologies, plus an industry recognized certification exam that can be used to demonstrate skills to employers.
Visit one of six local Career Centers in San Diego County to see if you qualify for a training voucher. Locations include East County Career Center, North County Inland Career Center, North County Coastal Career Center, Metro Career Center, South Metro Career Center and South County Career Center.
