Post-military careers can be a struggle to secure as veterans struggle to translate their military experience into workforce success. The Institute for Advanced Learning provides programs such as the Accelerated Training in Defense Manufacturing to help better prepare veterans for a second career.

The programs they offer, including those in welding, quality control, CNC machining, and many more, are aimed at filling skills gap and reducing time between skills and success. Every student who enrolls in the institute, including veterans, have one thing in common: the innate desire to serve the communities and country they live in.
