SAN FRANCISCO, April 28, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- VetsinTech, the leading national non-profit dedicated to advancing career opportunities for veterans in the tech industry, announced the continuation of a training series for veterans. Working together with AT&T California and its "Believe Bay Area" initiative, VetsinTech is holding additional training for veterans to sharpen their skills in web development.

Veterans can take advantage of these valuable online resources to either secure a meaningful career opportunity or extend their skill sets and responsibilities in current roles," said Rhonda Johnson, President- AT&T California. "We're delighted to support VetsinTech as they ready our veterans to springboard into developing or future opportunities especially as the market rebounds to normal."
