The IT Training and Certification Partnership will enable 161,000 service members to earn nationally- and industry-recognized certifications across a dozen “high-demand” tech professions, including database design, cloud computing, computer programmer, IT security and quality assurance. Military members will also be able to transfer related experience toward certification credits, according to a White House release on the initiative.
