Oracle’s Workforce Development Program Gives Back to Veterans

The Oracle Workforce Development Program is a worldwide program offered by Oracle University. It gives individuals in the community more options to develop the knowledge and experience with Oracle technologies that will position them for success in their careers. Oracle’s Workforce Development program enables educational institutions and training partners to offer authorized Oracle training content as a part of existing certificate, diploma and degree programs. This makes it easier for more people to develop Oracle skills and earn credentials that will lead to career advancement.

Oracle was on site for this announcement at the White House - including Oracle University’s own Michelle Cross, who manages the Workforce Development Program for North America.
