Forgive the mixed metaphors in the headline but Veterans day is still two months away but I think we can talk about helping our fellow “geek” veterans anytime! Our friend Fortinet has taken a long-term position to support those that have unselfishly served us. Here’s the straight scoop.
Fortinet is pleased to announce that nonprofit VetCTAP has joined the Fortinet Network Security Academy (FNSA) to develop its’ members’ – comprised of military, veterans, and spouses – cybersecurity skills and help them transition their career to the civilian workforce. By joining FNSA, VetCTAP will give their members access to training and curriculum from the Fortinet Network Security Expert program, which includes certifications designed for skill and experience development. As a result, active duty military, veterans, and their spouses can more effectively compete for jobs in today’s competitive marketplace.
“Fortinet is proud to partner with VetCTAP to provide comprehensive skills training, certifications and career preparation to military personnel as they transition to civilian careers,” highlighted Jay Garcia, Veterans Program Team Lead at Fortinet. “I experienced firsthand the benefits of VetCTAP’s program when I was looking to transition to the workforce and I eventually ended up at Fortinet where I’m helping others like myself do the same.”
