ST. LOUIS, MO, UNITED STATES, November 8, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Boeing and CyberUp find another way to support transitioning veterans this Veteran’s Day. Transitioning from military service to civilian life can be a significant challenge for veterans. Finding meaningful employment is often a key aspect of this transition. CyberUp's training program, sponsored by Boeing, plays a crucial role in supporting transitioning veterans by providing them with the skills and knowledge needed to start a career in the
cybersecurity field. This support is a way of honoring their service by helping them secure their future.

On November 9th, CyberUp will begin training 20 veterans and military spouses for our Veteran LevelUp Program. The program targeted veterans transitioning from active duty with 6 – 12 months left to their military commitment or active National Guard and Reservists. Participants receive 5 months of free cybersecurity training by CyberUp. Their training will ramp up their technical and cybersecurity skills to CompTIA Security+. Upon completion of their training, veterans are eligible for apprenticeship placement services from CyberUp. Through placement at an employer partner of CyberUp, veterans will complete a paid apprenticeship and continue their technical skills training.

To build on the success of the previous six cohorts, Boeing has invested in CyberUp to train 40 more veterans and military spouses in 2023 and 2024. We will team up and support Scott Air Force Base who forecasted to have approximately 4,000 service members’ transition. This is the first step to attracting and training veterans in cybersecurity to stay in the St. Louis region. Local companies highly seek after veterans because of their commitment to mission and core values. “We have a tremendous amount of talent transitioning each year from our partners at the base. The more we can do to incentivize them to stay in our region will help fill our growing skills gap. I would like to personally grow this program to account for a minimum of 10% of the veterans transitioning each year. When we do this right, we can help other military communities through apprenticeship and training. The opportunities for both the veteran and the region,” Tony Bryan, Executive Director at CyberUp explains.

“Boeing is dedicated to ensuring that veterans have ample career opportunities when separating from military service to enter the civilian workforce,” said Boeing Veterans Engagement Team St. Louis Chairman, Jeremy Evans. “And our mission at Boeing is to create a space that helps make those transitions successful and comfortable. We are proud to partner with CyberUp, whose veteran training program is already making a positive impact on the lives of many veterans in the St. Louis community.”
