1 min read

The Department of Veterans Affairs launched its program for training wounded veterans to be contracting specialists in a three-year internship, Federal Computer Week reports.

The VA Acquisition Academy Acquisition Internship School’s Warriors to Workforce Program started Thursday through which veterans are trained to qualify for acquisition related careers.

The program “leverages a training program that focuses on developing the mental and emotional strengths needed to success in their new endeavors,” according to the VA.

FCW reports the first year of the program consists of basic contracting skill training and strengthening veterans’ mental health. In the second and third year, veterans focus on the Federal Acquisition Institute’s technical competencies through interning in VA organizations.
