FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, N.Y. (April 5, 2014) – Sharp Decisions has launched its third training class of their highly successful V.E.T.S.™ (Vocations, Education and Training for Service members) Program, and first in Los Angeles, that began Saturday, April 5, 2014.
After celebrating the one-year anniversary of the launch of the program on March 4, 2014, Sharp Decisions is continuing to push forward and make a difference by taking the program to new heights as a national initiative.
The launch of this class in Los Angeles continues on the goal Sharp set for itself a year ago to increase the number of program participants to at least 200 participants by the end of the 2014 calendar year.
“We are excited for the launch of our new class and even more excited to take the program across the country to Los Angeles,” Sharp Decisions CEO, and program founder, Karen Ross said. “We are looking forward to our program’s continued success and support as this class begins its training.
V.E.T.S. is a private initiative that leverages the skill sets of veterans, training them in specific Quality Assurance Software Testing, Project Management and Business Analysis capabilities, while providing them with specific industry knowledge and an awareness of emerging developments, legislative, compliance and regulatory reporting.
Each trainee receives extensive training in a classroom setting from a quality assurance-testing expert in quality assurance concepts and methodologies, as well as industry-specific domains like Finance and Healthcare.
These veterans spend the first few weeks of training in a classroom, while the remainder of the time is focused on hands-on training, with the goal of helping these trainees adjust to corporate testing environments.
The reason these veterans have such a high success rate is because they work in a team-oriented environment, as they are accustomed to from their time in the military.
Once these veterans have completed the five-to-six week training program they are ready to start their new careers. The goal, then, is to deploy these quality assurance teams to client sites.
