Operations, (2) Security Infrastructure, (3) Software Engineering, (4) Operations/
Technical Support and (5) Security Management, (6) Network Security.

Yyotta will deliver the training at the Quantico Corporate Center in
12-15 week mixed online and classroom sessions. Training is scheduled to start
this spring 2017, and over the next 12 months the goal is to train approximately
200 veterans.
Virginia Values Veterans (V3) will provide engagement opportunities with
Virginia employers.
As a prerequisite to this program, registrants are required to sign up for
