“O2O is eye-opening and more ‘real’ world than any of the other transition programs that I have been to in my past. It is the only [transition] program that I have seen so far that helps you get real world, industry-specific skills that can be used quickly, and most importantly are backed by private employers.”

Onward to Opportunity at National Capital Region offers two career tracks: Information Technology and Business Management. Your journey will begin with a 6 week Onward to Your Career course including an Industry Foundations course in a learning pathway of your choosing. The classroom portion is supplemented with 6-12 weeks of online coursework to earn an industry certification.

While you complete your certification coursework, you will also participate in mixer/networking events with our National Employer Partners to hone your personal marketing techniques and skills. This is a great way to gain inside perspective on careers in the private sector while introducing yourself to companies who are looking to hire O2O graduates.
