It was announced by Rockville, Md.-based SAP National Security Services (SAP NS2) that 22 veterans graduated from the fourth class of its NS2 Serves training program. The NS2 Serves is a program designed to give back to the community it serves by training and employing veterans in high-tech careers. The individuals that graduate with the Certified SAP Associate status attain a certification that is valuable in many career paths. These individuals receive placement assistance for work in the national security field and in various other business environments.
Admiral Eric T. Olson, U.S. Navy (Ret.) Former Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command and keynote speaker at the November 2015 NS2 Serves graduation stated, “NS2 Serves is not a hand out program for veterans like many out there today. These graduates not only earned their way in to the program, they performed at a high level while there and earned this impressive accomplishment today.”
The NS2 Serves program educates veterans in the areas of business and leadership training, communication skills development and information technology. Seventy-Eight veterans have graduated from this program since 2014. Of these seventy-eight all have begun careers that earn a median salary of $65, 000 at companies such as IBM, Lockheed Martin, Unisys, Accenture Federal, CSC, HCL Technologies, SAP NS2, USDA and others.
Vice Admiral Jo Kernan, U.S. Navy (Ret.) and Chairman, NS2 Serves said, “NS2 Serves provides veterans having difficulty finding post-military employment with in demand skills in business IT. NS2 Serves addresses both of these challenges, while allowing us to give back to members of the military community who have selflessly served our country.”
Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 NS2 Serves training program which will take place at the National Conference Center from Tuesday, March 8, 2016 through Friday, May 27, 2016.
