MyComputerCareer, an innovative adult I.T. career college with
campuses in Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina and Texas, is partnering with
the American Legion and
Operation: Job Ready Vets with a new
outreach program that offers financial support and educational
opportunities to Indiana military veterans left stranded by the abrupt
closure of ITT-Tech

INDIANAPOLIS & RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$ESI #AdultEducationThe
American Legion Department of Indiana
and MyComputerCareer.edu
today announced that the Legion has endorsed MyComputerCareer’s ITT-Tech
Graduation Grant program
.

MyComputerCareer’s ITT-Tech Graduation Grant program was announced in
mid-September following the abrupt closure of over 130 ITT Technical
Institute campuses nationwide, a shutdown that abandoned over 40,000
students, over 6,000 of whom are American military veterans. Under
MyComputerCareer’s new grant program, any former ITT-Tech student who
enrolls in and completes MyComputerCareer’s foundational I.T.
Systems Administrator (ITSA) program

will receive a post-graduation loan repayment grant of up to 37% of the
cost of the ITSA tuition.

“Given its long-standing support for veterans and the excellent pathway
its I.T. Certification courses provide servicemen and women looking to
transition into civilian life, we heartily endorse MyComputerCareer’s
ITT-Tech Graduation Grant program,” said Hugh Dagley, Adjutant of The
American Legion, Department of Indiana. “Not only can veterans take the
ITSA program online from anywhere in the state, but MyComputerCareer has
a campus right here in Indianapolis, which makes it even more attractive
to us and American Legion members in the area.”

According to MyComputerCareer’s Founder and CEO Tony Galati, the ITSA
course is an excellent path for any veteran interested in pursuing a
career in I.T. Security, Network Administration and/or Helpdesk
positions, whether as a manager or administrator.

“Since our launch over eight years ago, we have helped countless
veterans across the country gain the know-how to earn valuable
Information Technology certifications critical for landing high-paying
I.T. jobs,” Galati said. “Through our sponsorship of the POW-MIA
Freedom Car
we have developed a close relationship with The
American Legion, and we are quite humbled to receive this endorsement.”

Operation: Job Ready Vets and MyComputerCareer also
Partner in Indiana

In addition to the Indiana Legion’s endorsement of the ITT-Tech
Graduation Grant program, MyComputerCareer will also be working closely
with American Legion partner, Operation: Job Ready Vets (OJRV),
to conduct an outreach program to military veterans in the Hoosier state
and beyond.

“We love the quality of training provided by MyComputerCareer, as well
as its dedication to serving our former servicemen and women,” said Gene
Anderson, CEO of Operation: Job Ready Vets. “MyComputerCareer’s
Lifetime Job Placement services fall right in line with our focus at
OJRV, and we look forward to working with them to help provide
additional support for Indiana veterans.”

While completing the rigorous full-time 7-month or part-time 10-month
ITSA program, students can earn up to 10 I.T. Certifications,
specifically

  • Five Microsoft Certifications:

    • Windows Operating Systems Fundamentals — Microsoft Technology
      Associate (MTA);
    • Networking Fundamentals (MTA);
    • Security Fundamentals (MTA);
    • Mobility and Devices (MTA); and
    • Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP);
  • Four CompTIA Certifications:

    • CompTIA A+, Network+, Mobility+ and Server+ Certifications; and
  • One Cisco Systems Certification:

    • Cisco Certified Entry Networking Technician (CCENT).

The next ITSA course will start at the Indianapolis campus on Friday,
October 21. Conversely, Tuesday, October 18 is the next start date for
MyComputerCareer’s live online version of its ITSA course, available
throughout the United States. Another online class will start
approximately six weeks later.
