Transitioning from JBLM to civilian life? How about a career in software development?

The Microsoft Software & Systems Academy (MSSA) is an 18-week program designed to provide software development training to active duty service members transitioning out of the military.  The program was inspired by Sen. Patty Murray’s legislation, the “VOW to Hire Heroes Act” and serves as a bridge for America’s veterans from a military career to the technology field.  Information packets are available at the Stone Education Center, or call 253-967-7174 to inquire.

Cannot participate in the MSSA program during the day?  Contact us about our evening courses that lead to the bachelor's degree in computer science.
