OnForce Gives Thanks to Veterans with Reimbursement for IT Training Certification Exams and Pledge to Wounded Warrior Project
BOSTON --(Business Wire)--
In the month of November, OnForce is offering to pay 50 percent of the
cost of one IT certification exam for IT service professionals that are
military veterans. Additionally, OnForce will donate two percent of the
value for all work performed in November by veterans through OnForce
will be donated to Wounded
The initiative is part of OnForce's effort to give thanks to U.S.
veterans while creating additional opportunities for them in the
information technology (IT) field.
To qualify for the IT certification fee reimbursement, IT service
professionals must be part of the OnForce community, a veteran of the
United States military, and earn the certification by May 31, 2014.
Qualifying certifications include those offered by Apple, Cisco (News - Alert), CEDIA,
CompTIA, Dell, HP, Lexmark, Microsoft, Novell, and Samsung.
The planned gift to Wounded Warrior will support both the organization's
primary mission as well as the important work it is doing through its
Transition Training Academy to enhance and promote veteran careers in IT.

skills, dedication and loyalty yet was challenged by the economy in
finding a full-time opportunity," said Tom Takano, president, Nationwide

business is thriving and I'm able to provide for my family. OnForce
plays a big part in that by presenting me with challenging, short-term

that I'm continually honing my skills."
