Military Veteran Transition Civilian Project Management Course

Military Veteran Transition Civilian Project Management Course:
Hello Association Members,
Larry Stieler connected with me on LinkedIn and has sent me the below information that he’s working on organizing a Project Management course to transition Military veterans to Civilian world using a USA Military career transition model on how they do this.
This reminded me of Tom Quigley’s initiative that he’s been involved with for awhile to have military personnel career transition into civilian world.
He’s currently running this in house 5 day boot camp course in Ottawa which would prepare you for the PMP exam.
I asked him about considering doing this in Toronto.
He mentioned that Yes, he would consider if there’s interest.
Free free to take a look at the Word document and reply to me directly (not everyone else) if you’re interested.
