The Veteran’s Career Launcher

New Horizons
We are the world’s largest independent training company. In Central Florida alone we work with over 3,000 employers who use us  for their training needs. Many of these companies also recruit from us. This gives our veterans access to jobs that are never advertized, especially DOD 8570 positions where veterans are preferred.

Project Management

If you have management experience one of the hottest job opportunities is in project management. In the Tampa/St. Petersburg job market shows over 3,000 openings for project managers. Find out why the Project Management Institute (PMI) says veterans make good project managers

Cyber Security

There are an estimated almost 4,000 job openings for cyber-security in the Tampa/St. Petersburg job market. The cyber-crime epidemic is expected to triple the number of open positions over the next five years. Veterans are often given preference but you must be certified.

Information Technology

With the amount of computer networks doubling every five years, the job demand for IT workers continues to soar for this high paid career. New Horizons is the largest partner in CompTIA’s Troops to Tech program, and we work with several employers who give hiring preference to veterans.

Learn, Certify, Work

We help you get certified and placed in weeks, not years
This is not a college. Training is short, intense and effective. We want to help you get started in your career as quickly as possible

Certified Training Partners

When we teach a Cisco class or other vendor, the courseware, labs and curriculum comes from the vendor. The instructor is certified in the field AND certfied by the vendor to teach the class.

Taught for Veterans

Most of our instructors are veterans and are experts at teaching the class for other veterans to benefit

Military Friendly

The 2018 Military Friendly Schools® list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.

Flexible Schedules

Both day and evening classes are available. With frequent class starts, we can work around your schedule

Career Placement Assistance

The goal is simple: to help you launch your career.
How do we help you launch your career?
New Horizons has partnered with a staffing firm to help you get placed. They are able to take advantage of the contacts we have with Fortune 500 companies and others who use us for their training to get your information in front of hiring managers who are in need of qualified applicants.
The staffing agency has people who work exclusively with our veterans. They are onsite to help with resumes, cover letters, mock interviews and help you get hired.

Amazing at placing me as soon as I was done with the classes

Every instructor knew what they were teaching and was able to put concepts into layman’s terms so that the average person easily understod.

“Mr. McGuirk was very instrumental in helping me determine my educational path. I gave him my list of career and training objectives. He charted my options and identified advantages for each course available. He also explained career potential for each class. His guidance contributed to my finding my new job. (Thank you! Thank you!)”

Lauren Parlette

“I would absolutely recommend New Horizons to anyone looking to further their career!! Why not make advances, more money and have the education that leads to more freedom in your career choices?”
