How Cisco Supports Military Veterans and Their Families


Cisco partners to create training and career opportunities for transitioning service members, military veterans, and their spouses through a variety of programs. These initiatives include IT training and employment programs that create pathways to meaningful careers in technology. We strive to raise awareness of the value of hiring veterans.


Talent Bridge for Veterans


Talent Bridge for Veterans is a free job-matching platform connecting veterans with Cisco's channel partner ecosystem. A military skills translation tool helps employers find qualified candidates. Open to veterans, military spouses, transitioning service members, reservists, and National Guard members who meet specific education or work experience criteria.


Veteran Talent Incubation Program (VTIP)


This 20-week, self-study program offers veterans and military spouses access to free CCNA training and certification along with the opportunity to get hired into dedicated network engineering roles at Cisco. Over 100 VTIP students were hired by Cisco in the first two years of the program with a 95% success rate. 




Cisco is leading a tech industry consortium that provides free cybersecurity training, certification, and employment services to veterans and military spouses. Other partners include Amazon Web Services, Palo Alto Networks, ISC2, Fortinet, NetApp, and NDG.
