Free training from NPower for Veterans, spouses in Texas, California, New Jersey and Maryland


So much of our time is spent online, now more than ever, as people catch up on news, shop, and even participate in virtual gaming. With the pandemic, many are turning to online resources for professional development and training.

Now Veterans and Veteran spouses in Texas, California, New Jersey, and Maryland can be a part of shaping that online experience, with free, virtual training and certification in technology and digital skills, offered by NPower. If you have ever used a tactical radio, navigated with GPS, or mastered any video games, you already have the foundation to learn the skills to land a job in technology.

Navy Veteran Anthony Shaw used NPower’s training and internship program to help lift himself from homelessness, and now is an IT Project Manager. “I absolutely love what I do, and am grateful for this opportunity [with NPower].”

The United States is the world’s largest technology market and technology is the fastest growing economic sector. With many job opportunities in these areas, there’s never been a better time to gain the skills for a more secure future. NPower’s free, virtual training and certifications are offered in tech fundamentals, cybersecurity, cloud computing, and coding.

  1. Latoya R Neal    

    Hello i am trying to submit my letters of recommendations separately after i have applied for coding successfully but the emails that are provided are not working or not legit. Do you have another email that i can submit my letters to?

  2. Mignon Milan    

    It’s amazing news. I would like to join this program. Thank you for this opportunity. But you did not mention, how to apply?

  3. John william    

    Thank you so much for this post. It’s actually really insightful and would definitely benefit us. I ‘d like to work from home and prepare me for this training program.

  4. Elvia Manley    

    I’m interesting in learning more about programs available

  5. Samantha    

    This article is extremely misleading and should be removed.

    Unless you reside in one of the states, you aren’t eligible. It doesn’t state that it’s required to live a specific area.

    The set up for this is absolutely terrible. You have to send in your DD214 and provide your current income and all kinds of other information and then you don’t even get conformation that your information was received.

    You have to email them and then get the run around to find your information just to find out that you aren’t eligible based on your location even though IT’S ALL ONLINE.

    This should be pulled and they should not advertise that they assist Veterans.

  6. John Whisman    

    This article should be taken down until it can be rewritten. I am still looking for a phone number to call to complain.

    I applied, then contacted Npower. It was explained to me from Marguerite Durret (, who answers the emails for, that unless you live near one of their campuses in NJ, TX, or CA, then you are not eligible.

    Hopefully this is an honest mistake, and not another nefarious attempt to collect detailed personal data, to restructure and resell. I guess I will know in a few weeks if I start getting spam email and phone calls about online courses.

    1. Samantha    

      I also emailed in and questioned why, if everything is online, can I not apply:
      “Hello Samantha,
      There is much more to the NPower Program than just the classes and as mentioned we are working on moving to a larger network but are not ready yet…
      Just to give you an example, one of the key factors is the ability to find internships for our students, and of course jobs, and we work with partners to do this… we don’t have these partnerships in every state… yet…
      And that is just one element…
      But as I said we are working very hard on changing this and making our Veterans programs available nationally…”

      Personally, I think that’s a lie and this was an attempt to collect information. I’m more concerned that my DD214 is floating around. If the VA is going to put out resources to their Vets, they should be far more cautious in who they stand behind.

      1. Robert D wyer. COLONEL SPC OPS    

        first and foremost, there is no free lunch and you should know better. this whole program reeks of fraud deception and lies to the veterans seeking self improvement. anything related to the VA you should approach as you would a mine field. the VA does nothing for the veteran. look at the VA hospitals, talk to veterans who have sought help from the VA and receive nothing but BS. last but not the least look at the suicide rate of veterans and the homeless. now look at the concern for the illegal aliens that are here getting free health care and everything else the democrats can pontificate on their pedestal.
        if you want help then i encourage you to look at the end of your arms, you have 2 helping hands and that is all you will ever have.

  7. Alex Jefferson    

    I want informationa about this clasd.

  8. Kelvin Foulk    

    I am currently a student in the CIS field will have Associate’s in a matter of weeks, but definitely need more training and hands on experience, this seems to be just what I need, so I am seriously interested in taking advantage of something just like this.

  9. Redrick Jones    

    Please let me know how to get started.

  10. Ed    

    hey all you have to click the link for training. Also, cyber security is for TX & NJ only

  11. Ja'nice A. Tubman    

    I am interested in hearing more about the training and would like to sign up. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

  12. Norman S. Stahl    

    Are there any costs or potential fees to the veteran from this program? I am aware of an earlier VA pilot program, that charged the veteran a substantial fee if they did not find IT work at the end of the program.

    Does the veteran have to have VA Education benefits available to participate?

  13. Guillermo Calle    

    My wife and I are interesting in training and I like to know how to register. Please forward information to my email.
    Thank you very much

  14. Joe Smith    

    This is a bit deceiving as it’s only available to a limited amount of areas. You first have to be an alumni of “Tech Fundamentals” which is only available in certain areas, then you can take part in the other programs. This program makes it sound like any US Veteran can apply.

  15. John and Victoria Smith    

    We are interested in applying for the Free Tech Training for Veterans and Spouses. Thank you. Please contact us as soon as possible.

  16. Antoinette Pannell    

    I like to know more about the program and job opportunities.

  17. Raymond R Holmes    

    How do I sign up and when can I start?

  18. carlos paniagua    

    I am very interested in the NPower training program. How do I apply for this class? I am planning on moving to Spain in the near future, any possibilities to apply this knowledge abroad?

  19. Air Force Veteran    

    I would run this article by my local veteran assistance offices. AMVETS and or other local veteran services to see what they say about this program. There could be similar programs right in your town that offers the same opportunities.

  20. Reginald Keith Smith    

    I posted a comment 2 days ago. Please reply.

  21. Brandon D Moon    

    I am a veteran Avionics technician and was laid off back in March of this year due to the COVID19 Pandemic, I’m looking for a possible career change and possible work from home opportunities, but not limited to. I’m 56 and find work is very difficult and layoff are getting old and financially straining.

    I’m interested in learning more about what types of programs are available for the kinds of jobs that are available.

  22. donna brimhall    

    I would like more info on this training being offered.

  23. Jerry Croom    

    I’m interested in the free training.

    1. John Whisman    

      Unless you live near one of the three campuses in NJ, TX, or CA, You are most likely not eligible. I am arguing with Marguerite Durret  right now via email about how absurd it is to limit online classes to cities.

  24. Henry Hernandez    

    Where do I sign up. What is the age limit ?

  25. Robert Heilbron    

    NPower is the company that sold me my solar system. They lied to me about the power that the system they were offering me would produce and now I’m paying for a system that falls way below my needs. So I won’t trust them here!

  26. Michael Cambridge    

    I’m interested in this training

  27. James Raymond Gardner Jr.    

    I’m 73 Yrs. old is there an age limit ? How fast do I need to be able to type ?

    1. Ramon Pescevich    

      Can you tell us where to apply and signup?

    2. Roberto M Garcia    

      YES!!! the age limit is 18 to 25; hence most Veterans DO NOT QUALIFY. Therefore, what all the fuss with this training? I think that Kiran Dhillon does not know what she is talking about. Also, they ask Veterans to DONATE! Shame on them asking veterans, whom don’t even have the money to subsist, for a DONATION. The word Veteran says it all… they are people over 40 years old and if you don’t believe me check the statistics. Also, Kiran Dhillon does not even know how to write a good and truthful article.

      1. Simone Rembert    

        I read the requirements and it states:: Young adults (non-veterans) 18-25 years old, high school diploma or equivalent.. Veterans and spouses of veterans, over 21 currently serving or honorably discharged.

        Hope this helps.

        1. Benjamin McDade    

          What is the difference between a 21 and 50 veteran? If its age, then isn’t that age discrimination. What a joke!

          Im extremely disappointment in the VA newsletter, why would they mislead us (vets) like this. This training is a joke for so many reasons.

        2. Pedro    

          There is no age limit for Veterans and their spouses. Also, we have graduates that are in there 70’s but they had prior Tech and/or Engineering experience.

  28. Tracy Hill    

    I would like to work from home would this training program prepare me for that.

  29. Orlando    


    1. Marie ZKanitz    

      I am very interested in the N power program

    2. Black marine    

      What are the specifications of the computer I will need to use to successfully participate in this program? Should I use Windows, macOS, Linux or is there a preference? Signing up for a program online, that offers little or no information is typically referred to as a scam. Considering the number of older vets asking questions it would be beneficial for the VA to offer details. Surely this isn’t asking or expecting too much of someone asking for my dd214 social security number and other incredibly personal and private sensitive information.

      1. Orlando    

        Your best best is to contact them directly through their ‘contact us’ tab at after you read a bit more. I get your worries but cynicism never gets us where we want.

    3. Smells fishy    

      What operating system is required? What specs should my computer have? Details would be very helpful up front versus later after I’ve provided incredibly personal information to a program with little or no details which I may or may not qualify for but won’t find out until after you have my sensitive info.

  30. Adam Hall    

    I am very interested in the NPower training program.

  31. Darlene Olson    

    How do I apply for free class???

  32. Black marine    

    How will you use my personal information if I am rejected or do not qualify to advance to the next stage? Do you profit off selling my personal information given in the application process? Does your organization donate to the Republican Party? Does your program select and support minorities for this program? I see pictures of black men smiling but computers can generate those images. Is there literature elsewhere online that can verify the legitimacy of this program? I see a lot of my silver haired brothers and sisters in arms seeking information about the need of a computer. Does one need a computer, tablet or smartphone to participate? Will you help provide access to those resources for individuals who need help accessing a way to participate?

  33. Develon Hearvey    

    Total let down no where near my state

  34. Debra Collins    

    Would love to sign up but cannot locate the I want to apply button

    1. Ronald Morales    

      The link is in the above sentence
      “Click here to apply and start your career in digital technology. Virtual classes start Sept. 8, 2020. ”
      This is the link.

      Horrible job on the captcha …

    2. Roberto M Garcia    

      It is embedded in the article itself which is “Stupid” actually. The ‘link” should be all by itself and not in the article itself. You have to read the article and “probably” will see it.

  35. Blake Leander Mills    

    How do I apply for the classes

  36. Chendra Robinson    

    I’m interested in applying for the free training.

  37. Gregory Maurice Easter    

    I am looking forward to this training. Would like information on Cybersecurity for now. Thank you!

  38. Ramon Giusti    

    I would like to ask if you need typing speed and proficiency? and what courses you will teach in the Northern VA/DC area?
    I might have other questions which I will bring to your attention soon.

    Thank you,



  39. Ramon Giusti    

    I’m a Navy Veteran. I’m presently working on the nursing field. I have some questions for the NPOWER instructors facilitators. Do you need to have typing efficiency and speed? Are you going to offer these courses in the Northern VA /DC Metro area? I may have some other questions but I will brainstorm them and bring them up. Thank you for your reply and help.



  40. Dr Desiree LEWIS    


    1. Roberto M Garcia    

      Believe me… there is nothing amazing about this opportunity. You are better off going to a junior college. They have classes for adults with a minimum of knowledge; at least that is the case in California. Besides, they have an age limitation which is 18 to 25 and most Veterans and spouses are over 30 years old mostly. You can also train all by yourself at the library. The unemployment office also has some good programs for training.


    How do I apply and get started ??,


    This seems like a fabulous opportunity to learn a new career, looking forward to seeing how this all turns out.

  43. Scott    

    As stupid as some of these comments are, from people asking how to apply when the link is right there, to people thinking that posting a mini essay in the comment section of a VA article will get them accepted, I’d be surprised if any company would hire a veteran. My god, do you even know how to follow simple instructions? Do you know how to do something as simple as applying for a job? I don’t know which of the branches of service you guys come from, but they should be ashamed for turning such clueless, ill-prepared people out into the civilian world.

    1. Orlando    

      Veteran here. Exactly what I was thinking.

    2. Samantha    

      I’d guess that they’re older vets, and are unfamiliar with the digital medium. An issue common to older generations, veteran status notwithstanding.

    3. Clay    

      Veteran here, too – at first I was going to reply to the comments and help people out. Then I realized that if you can’t read a whole article and see the link to apply at the bottom, maybe it’s just natural selection…

  44. Henry E Tingle    

    i am just looking for a job in/around phila. area i.have a car

  45. Larry Clements    

    I’m interested in learning more about this opportunity. Please if you have time to elaborate more email me

  46. West Coast Vet    

    A quick online screening tool to verify requirements for this program are met pror to requiring completing the application would be appreciated. Thank you.

  47. A.Fortin    

    Before they ask you to give a lot of your personal information including SSN, DD214, income etc.., they should make the requirements very clear. Looks like they use all the info you provide them in the application form for studies. etc.. even if you are not accepted. For the sake of protecting vets from unnecessarily giving out their identity info, it would be appreciated if the requirements were more upfront. Thank you.

  48. Michael Stordeur    

    I would like to receive training to help with safty geard towards work in industry plants, and refineries.

  49. Thomas McGowan    

    Please add me to the list of Vets looking to learn.

  50. Little Rock    

    I see lots of inquiries on how to apply and get more information. To link to more information click on the “Click here to apply” text in last line that states “Click here to apply and start your career in digital technology.” From there you will get a short overview of training opportunity and a form to enter your name as “interested” party. As you select curriculum of interest you will see via the drop down choices that training is only available in certain locations. I hope this info is helpful to some of you.

  51. Paul Vining    

    Are any of these free classes/courses online? Because it looks like they only offer classes in seven states, none of which I live in…

    How do I apply?


  56. Wladimir Fox    

    This is a bit deceiving as it’s only available to a limited amount of areas. You first have to be an alumni of “Tech Fundamentals” which is only available in certain areas, then you can take part in the other programs. This program makes it sound like any US Veteran can apply.

  57. Norberto Lugo    

    I see that you only have class in certain cities, when will this be available for Atlanta veterans ? I was really excited about this position. Please advise, any guidance would be appreciated. Thank you.

  62. Maricza Mckenzie    

    Hello all thank you all for your interest in the NPower program.
    My name is Maricza Mckenzie I am the Recruitment Manager for NPower Texas just one of our many regions in the US.
    Please email me or Darius Johnson your questions and location so I can direct you in the right direction.


    Tech Fundamentals starts:
    September 8th
    9am-1pm or 2pm-6pm
    100% Virtual program
    Free training/certifications (A+ , ITF+)
    Internship opportunities
    Job placement assistance

  63. Darlene Johnson    

    What is the process to completely register and the call Curriculums?

  64. Robert Manskey    

    It should be noted that NPower seems to only offer classes in a few topics and in a very limited number of areas. For example, according to their site, their Cybersecurity certification training is only offered in TX and NJ. I just wanted to make sure everyone was aware that they need to check the locations along the top menu bar on the website before getting too excited about the potential training. Good luck, everyone.

  65. Kimberley Hairston-Harris    

    I’m the spouse of a veteran and I am interested in the training classes how do I go about registering.

  66. Juan Ortiz    

    I would love to see is there is something for me in IT.It was an honor to serve, I would like to find something that’s fun to keep me interested.

  67. Anita Haynes    

    I am with the rest of the vets asking where is the link? So disappointing to hear of these great trainings but not be able to get sufficient information on how to sign up for the programs being offered.

    1. Anita Haynes    

      Ok I found the link where it says CLICK HERE TO APPLY inside the article. Thanks

      I stand corrected.

  68. John Martinez    


    The “apply now link” directs one to this page, however, it does not further the application process. This page is informational but does not provide what most of us posting comments are in search of… the actual application.

    Would you be so kind to please assist us with something other than:

      I tried the link and it took me to NPower and their registration.

    There is no link on the article to register for this opportunity. This is not the first time this happens with your articles. Kindly assist: “Free training for Veterans and spouses with NPower”

    I would like to be considered for this program, I was two semester away from completing as A.A.S in Cyber-security, that was 2 years ago so I am very rusty, I think that this would be a great opportunity for me since we are not having a 2020 LASCON in Austin (Lone Star Application Security Conference) this year due to Covid-19. I currently hold 2 degrees in Criminal Justice,both are an A.A.S with honors and am a part of PTK honor society. Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for your consideration.

  137. Laniel L Francis    

    Thank you for providing these classes

  138. Margaret Green    

    I am a veteran. I was wondering if there is any possibility my 18 year old son who just graduated High School with honors would be eligible for this training? He was set to attend a local technical college for the fall and had FAFSA lined up with a scholarship but unfortunately he will be unable to attend due to COVID-19. He has severe asthma and we cannot risk him being in a classroom setting. They are having all classes in a hybrid format, some online and some in the classroom. We looked around for other online courses but all the colleges want you to do a two-year and some of the tech schools are way too expensive for us this would be amazing opportunity for him and give us hope.

  139. Dewayne Orender    

    Extremely interested in both the Technology and Cybersecurity routes. However, all times for even the virtual classes are during normal work hours. Would like to work this out if possible!

  147. Robert Rumfelt    

    This program has all sorts of requirements not mentioned in the article. Once you get into the details, which were conveniently omitted from the article, maybe 1% of less of Vets are actually eligible.

    Just another case of hype by the VA and why vets like me dont even listen to this crap anymore. Just more VA BS.

  148. Matt McCormick    

    Would love the opportunity to work for the Va

    I just lost my mother to virus she was 85 years old and she fought it all the way. Like said I have a lot of physical problems my therapist and my doctors will tell you I have been fighting them since all of my surgeries get back into shape. My only way of getting back into shape start working at one type of job or another. If I had my way I’ll be back working on automobiles but after 12 years in prison lost a lot of knowledge so I’m a little bit behind but with a little help I can get right back into it physically I’m sure I could still handle it.
    I don’t know the words stop I might need to sit down a little bit sometime. But then I need to get up and get my butt going again. The army is still in me the good Lord is still in me. All I need is a chance thank you.
