How do I know if I qualify for WOS?
We have a very short but specific list of requirements for the program. Overall, we are looking for Veterans who are highly motivated, eager to learn, and intensely dedicated. If you possess those qualities, apply to one of our upcoming programs.
Where do I get an application?
Veterans interested in joining an upcoming class are encouraged to apply online.
When does the program begin?
There is no set start date for our programs. When we get new clients, we assess their staffing needs and recruit Veterans accordingly. We always post information about upcoming programs at least a month before the start date on our website.
Do I have to sign a contract?
No. There are no contracts. We hold up our end of the bargain – to train, educate, and help Veterans begin a career in with a corporation. All we ask is that our Veteran students show up on time, submit their homework by deadline, and dedicate their energy to learning new skills.
How does the admissions process work?
Once a Veteran submits an application, he or she will be contacted by WOS for a follow-up phone conversation. If we believe there is a fit, the Veteran will begin the selection process which can include phone interviews, in-person interviews and/or selection sessions. An example of a WOS selection session is our Pre-Certification, which typically takes place two nights a week over a two week period. Attendance is mandatory for these sessions, except for those required to attend training/drill. Performance in the Pre-Certification can determine acceptance into the program. Overall, program acceptance is based on the evaluation of multiple assessments and touchpoints to determine those individuals who will be most successful in the certification program.
How big are the classes?
Class size depends on the client's needs. Cohorts have ranged from 10 to 25 students who remain together throughout the entire duration of the program.
When will I be notified if I'm accepted?
Upon completion of the selection process, successful candidates will be notified by a member of the Workforce Opportunity Services team.
Can I re-apply if I don't get accepted?
Yes. We encourage Veterans to re-apply to the program if they are not accepted the first time.
