Georgia Tech Collaborates with BTL to Create Course for Transitioning Vets

Georgia Tech Professional Education has collaborated with US Army LTC {Ret} John W. Phillips, author of “Boots to Loafers, Finding Your New True North”, to create an entry level course for veterans transitioning from the military to corporate life. The short course, “VET2 101,” is offered online and will teach career soft-skills including resume building and interview skills.

The course is based on Boots to Loafers, Finding Your True North by LTC Phillips. Phillips currently collaborates with the Military Program, Veterans Education Training and Transition (VET2) program, offered through Georgia Tech Professional Education, and his book is required reading for students enrolled.

“The VET2 101 program provides much needed assistance to our men and women transitioning from the service. With the number of soldiers being cut dramatically at bases nationwide, we worked to create an online course that transitioning veterans will be able to access anywhere in the world giving them the skills they need to start the transition process into the corporate workforce,” said James Wilburn, Director for Military Programs at Georgia Tech Professional Education.

The new online VET2 101 course is now available. Upon successful completion of the course, student will receive a Georgia Tech Professional Education Certificate of Completion. There is no other military transition course of this kind offered to our military or Veterans going through the transition process. To enroll in the course, please go to
