In the United States there are currently 150,000 open IT support jobs, and the average starting salary is $52,000, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics.


A job in IT can mean in-person or remote help desk work, either in a small business or at a global company, like Google. By earning an SVA IT Support Professional Certificate, you can go from beginner to job ready in as little as eight months. Thanks to our partner Google, SVA is providing student veterans and their spouses FREE access to a six-part innovative online curriculum designed to prepare you for an entry-level role in IT support.


The best part? No prior experience is required to be accepted!


Through a dynamic mix of video lectures, quizzes, and hand-on labs and widgets, this program will introduce you to troubleshooting and customer service, networking, operating systems, system administration, automation, and security. Along the way, you'll hear from Googlers with unique backgrounds and perspectives, whose own foundation in IT support served as a jumping off point for their careers.
