NTC, Wild Bullet collaborate to Ã¢â‚¬ËœTrain the troopsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢
LAS VEGAS - The National Training Center, located here, in February announced a program called Train the Troops. The program is offered free of charge to recently discharged military service personnel to train them for low-voltage-industry careers.
Charles Aulner, CEO of NTC, said in a statement, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Many returning service members are discharged within two months of returning from the battlefield. This does not provide them with much time to find work in the civilian sector.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I thought, what better way to give back to our troops than to do what we are good at, and give the very best low-voltage training to the US troops; at the same time provide the industry with well trained and qualified individuals.Ã¢â‚¬Â
In total, NTC is contributing $294,000 in training and materials to Train the Troops. The program will be offered twice during 2008.
NTCÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s partner in this program is WildBullet.com. Wild Bullet, a low-voltage industry recruiting firm, will assist service members in finding employment. Wild Bullet provides career placement services for qualified low-voltage professionals. To find out more about the program visit www.TrainTheTroops.org.
