Eligibility Requirements

Onward to Opportunity in partnership with VCTP (O2O-VCTP) is a FREE program offering industry-specific training, credentials and job placement services. O2O-VCTP partners with private sector companies committed to training and hiring military talent and their spouses earlier in the transition process. If you are not located near one of our on-base installations, we offer distance-learning opportunities through the online-only portion of the program. We will work with you to determine which program best fits your needs.
