Onward to Opportunity in Partnership with Veterans Career Transition Program (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.
