Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and professional training, is celebrating the opportunity it has had over the last 25 years to serve the military community through various donations, tuition programs, employment initiatives and military-friendly practices. Over the years, Career Step has helped thousands in the military community achieve their career goals.
“Career Step offers flexible, portable, online training, which makes our education programs ideal for military service members and spouses looking to continue their education wherever they may be stationed,” said Steve Tober, Career Step President and CEO. “We are grateful for the opportunity to help so many in the military community gain the education needed to start a new chapter and a career change in their lives, and we look forward to educating and serving many more.”
Career Step has been a member of the Military Spouse Employment Partnership since June 2011 and has been named to GI Jobs magazine’s list of military-friendly schools numerous times. The school is MyCAA-approved, which means eligible military spouses can train with up to $4,000 of their tuition covered, and in addition, Career Step has established partnerships with other colleges and universities that allow military service members and veterans to train for under $200. Fueled by this strong relationship with the military community, Career Step has donated to the National Military Family Association for their Operation Purple® Camp for six consecutive years.
Career Step training programs are an excellent fit for those in the military community because they provide portable training for in-demand careers in every location. Students receive instruction through online, career-focused education, preparing individuals for immediate induction into the workforce. This proven education model has resulted in an 84% graduate placement rate and empowered many in the military community, such as Tracey Oaks, Career Step Medical Transcription graduate and military veteran, to pursue additional career education and find rewarding employment.
“I knew I had the ability to learn a new set of job skills, but Career Step allowed me to do it at my pace and with the resources and support I needed to successfully complete the course with little difficulty and stress,” said Tracey. “Now here I am five years later still in my absolute dream job!”
