After Sharp Decisions’ highly successful launch of the V.E.T.S.™ (Vocations, Education, and Training for Service members) Program, with positive feedback across the board from companies of many industries, Sharp Decisions started training for its second class of veterans yesterday. The recruits are veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The program trains them in software testing and quality assurance.
Each trainee receives extensive training in a classroom setting from a quality assurance testing expert in quality assurance methods 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 rest consists of hands-on training, with the goal of helping them adjust these trainees to testing environments.
“We just started the first day of training and I am really excited about this group,” Sharp Decisions CEO and V.E.T.S.™ Program founder Karen Ross said. “As with the first class, we have a very diverse group with different military backgrounds. Every time I see these veterans go to work, I get inspired more and more. I know they will succeed and exceed our customer’s needs.”
Dennis Torres from the Upper Manhattan Workforce 1 Career Center that helps place veterans in jobs is grateful that Sharp Decisions continues to follow through on their promise to help these post-9/11 veterans.
“I just wanted to personally thank you for extending offers to the veterans of your July 15 class. I often come across organizations that do not follow through on their commitment to veterans, but your organization has gone above and beyond for my fellow vets.”
