LANSING (WKZO) -- A new IT training program is being offered to veterans in the state.

Governor Snyder says participating veterans, service members and employers will use US IT Pipeline, a cloud-based talent exchange platform that enables a new level of collaboration between the IT Industry, training partners and veterans.  The platform, he says, provides registered users with skills assessment, career exploration tools, education and training information and direct access to job openings. It also lets employers match jobs with personnel based on their training, experience, education and credentials

In announcing the program, the governor said that this program will help vets who worked in IT fields get the fast track training they need to successfully make the transition into civilian employment.
