Lutz, FL – Even with a record low unemployment rate of 3.2 percent throughout the region as of March 2018, Tampa Bay’s veteran population is more than three times as likely to be unemployed. Local veterans currently have an unemployment rate of 11.2 percent according to the Military Times. But one local skills training provider is poised to help reduce that number by offering training and certification in Microsoft Office, Quickbooks, information technology, management, leadership and sales training courses which can be paid for using the Post-911 GiBill®. This gives veterans and their spouses who qualify for the Post-911 GIBill® the opportunity to improve their recruitment chances and long-term employability in weeks rather than years as required by many post-secondary academic institutions.
“Our students enjoy a 98 percent graduation rate, and more importantly an 86 percent job placement rate,” said Kristin Pelletier, Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) and founder of Access Computer Training. “We would like our veterans to have these same odds when seeking employment.”
Access Computer Training (ACT) is located in Lutz, Florida and offers an anxiety free setting in which to learn how to proficiently and effectively leverage the most common software programs used in business today. Small class sizes of 12 students or less and Microsoft Office-certified instructors who provide fundamental and advanced training in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Quickbooks, and other popular business applications are just a few of the many advantages of an ACT education. ACT also offers training in soft skills like leadership, management and sales. Most courses can be completed in 16 weeks or less, and drastically improve the odds of veterans looking for a fast return on their education investment of both dollars and time. IT training and certifications coming soon!
ACT is approved by the Florida Bureau of State Approving Agency for veterans’ educational training and is licensed with the Commission for Independent Education with the State of Florida. The Post-911 GIBill® is open to U.S. Veterans and their spouses, making them eligible to receive training dollars to cover the costs of diploma programs at ACT.
