Onward to Opportunity – formerly known as the Veteran Career Transition Program – at Tri-Base Jacksonville offers two career tracks: Information Technology and Business Management. Your journey will begin with four days of face-to-face career development training and facilitation. This classroom training includes the two-day Onward to Your Career course, one-day of Community Support briefs and mock interview sessions with local employer partners, and one-day of your industry foundations followed by the Employer Spotlights and networking event. The classroom portion is followed by 12-16 weeks of online coursework to earn an industry certification.
