ThriveDX will continue to contribute towards increasing the inclusivity of veterans in the cyber workforce due to their unique perspectives that can foster creativity, innovation, and problem-solving.

This program provides live instruction, personalized career support, opportunities to prepare for certifications, and a robust community dedicated to setting individuals up for success. The Accelerated IT Bootcamp offered to the Hire Heroes Scholars is a 14-week bootcamp delivered remotely through self-paced learning, that enables learners to go from beginner to job-ready IT professionals.
