The Onward to Opportunity Program at Pittsburgh, PA

Offers two career tracks: Information Technology & Business Management.

Your journey will begin with two and a half days of face-to-face classroom training and facilitation that includes the two-day “Onward to Your Career!” course and the half day foundations course in a learning pathway of your choosing. The classroom portion is followed by 6-10 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-VCTP graduates. Additionally, our National Partner Hire Heroes USA will also help to build your resume and prepare you for interviews.
