On Armed Forces Veterans Day, KnowledgeHut upGrad Commits to Enhancing the Skills of 500+ Military Veterans in FY23-24

Today, on Armed Forces Veterans Day, leading technology skilling provider KnowledgeHut upGrad announced that it will upskill as many as 500 military veterans in FY23-24. The initiative, which began in 2021, provides key short-duration technology courses to veterans, in collaboration with the United States Veterans Association (USVA).

So far, the firm has enabled the upskilling of as many as 400 military personnel, with more than 250 officers in Project Management Professional (PMP) courses and 165 officers trained in Certified Scrum Master (CSM) and Certified Scrum Product Owner (CSPO) courses. Through this initiative, veterans have been able to transition to corporate roles and earn attractive salary packages ranging from 20 Lakhs to 35 Lakhs.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Subramanyam Reddy, CEO of KnowledgeHut upGrad, said, “India has one of the biggest militaries in the world and a large number of personnel retire every year (close to 60,000 each year). Many are from the technical branches but may not have the industry-ready skill sets to join the corporate world. Our focus and efforts are directed towards creating a seamless learning experience for the veterans, equipping them with industry-focused skill sets that will help them move to mainstream job roles.”

Mr Jasbir Chawdhary, Chief Delivery Officer, KnowledgeHut upGrad added, “Rapidly growing sectors across tech, ecommerce, manufacturing, education, logistics and healthcare are extensively hiring military veterans today. We are happy to collaborate with any organization that shares our vision to create equitable life for ex-Armed Forces, post their retirement.” On this Armed Forces Veterans Day, KnowledgeHut upGrad is honoring the service and sacrifices made by all military veterans by upskilling as many as 500 veterans in FY23-24.
