The IVMF Difference

Our goal to help you get to where you want to be after leaving the military life. We offer programs that support post-military careers by complementing military skill sets/training. We work with leading corporations to identify skills gaps and prepare courses to get you trained and ready to enter the workforce or to grow your own business. We deliver world class educational and vocational training programs designed to provide service members, veterans and their families with the skills they need to be successful in business ownership, career and life. And we're here to help you every step of the way! Here is how the IVMF supports our program participants from start to finish.

Enrollment Services

Our enrollment services team knows our programs inside and out and can help assess where you are today and how we can help get you to where you want to be in your post-military career.
