Veterans & Military Spouses Attend Free Project Management Training

Twenty-seven veterans and military spouses gathered on November 15 in Washington, D.C., to attend the Veteran and Military Spouse Project Management Training hosted by Bank of America, Easter Seals Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services, Orion International, and Efiia Cares. This no-cost intensive project management (PM) training and career transition program is designed to help veterans and military spouses compete for higher paying, executive management track positions that lead to long-term professional success.

Held in the offices of Bank of America, the class was attended by students who came ready to learn the fundamentals of project management, industry standards, and best practices based on real projects. The students participated in classroom instruction, group exercises, presentations, resume writing, practice interviews, and training on management tools.

As with past training sessions, this event was a success with students gaining valuable knowledge. Course evaluation survey results reflect that students felt the course was highly effective, and all would recommend the course. Among the feedback received on the course was:
  • Amazing class. I learned a lot of information to help me with my job search.”
  • Having just completed the HCC PMP series, this training really brought it home.” 
  • Great course!  Loved it and learned a lot.”
