OSD & TrainOurTroops to Train 200,000 Veterans and Spouses by 2022 through Strategic Partnership

AUSTIN, Texas, November 2, 2017 /For immediate release/ — OSD and TrainOurTroops join forces and commit to training 200,000 veterans and military spouses by 2022. This much anticipated partnership will deliver the skills and certifications needed by veterans and their spouses to overcome staggeringly high underemployment rates. This valuable training coupled with OSD’s award winning, chapter based programs will see an immediate impact in the military community across the country.

TrainOurTroops Executive Director, Glen Brynteson (third from left above), said, “TrainOurTroops, with all the steps and professionals it takes to generate effective courseware, does not have the bandwidth to also create and maintain a community involvement aspect to our offering. We do what we do well. OSD’s ecosystem approach to supporting the military community immediately increases our ability to execute on our mission at scale.”

Glenn Banton (forth from left above), OSD’s Executive Director, echoed the same excitement, saying, “Formally partnering with TrainOurTroops has been a huge step forward in our ability to serve the professional needs of our community. We’ve already had numerous successes together through our Heroic Forces program for dozens of veterans and we’re excited to change the lives of 200,000 veterans and military spouses in the coming years.”

TrainOurTroops custom training modules guide each veteran through the process of training and certifying them to mitigate skill set weaknesses and enhance skill set strengths, ensure their capabilities are positioned to the ideal positions, and ensure they are visible to the right organizations. Curriculum is currently available at TrainOurTroops.org and customized course tracks will launch in late November for specific leadership needs in OSD’s global community.
