Central Texas College (CTC) announced enrollment is open for the next CTC-Fort Hood Systems, Applications and Products (SAP) in data processing cohort program which starts May 21. It is designed to provide transitioning active-duty military personnel and veterans with high-tech training in SAP, the world’s business software leader. During the 10-week program, students will complete five non-credit courses, receive hands-on training and become certified on the most used Cloud enterprise resource planning system.

The SAP program is a collaborative effort between CTC, Fort Hood and St. Michael’s Learning Academy in Houston as part of the SAP Veterans to Work Career Skills Program. Students will receive valuable training in some of today’s most in-demand specialties through the courses Introduction to Enterprise Systems; Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Configuration; Enterprise Systems, Tools, Concepts and Careers; ERP Business Process Integration with Simulation; and ERP Program Capstone. Areas of study in the courses include logistics, supply management, procurement, data base administration and project management.

“The SAP program is a logical step for transitioning military personnel looking for their next career move,” said Bruce Vasbinder, CTC community relations coordinator. “Students are afforded the necessary training to compete for employment opportunities across 25 industries including energy and national resources, financial services, public services and service industries. Upon completion, the students will earn SAP certification and be ready for a career as an SAP implementation consultant. Each candidate will also receive job placement assistance.”

Geared towards veterans and transitioning military members, the SAP program is also open to the public. Classes will be held at the CTC Fort Hood campus located on 72nd Street in Bldg. 3201. Anyone interested in the SAP program can obtain more information by contacting the CTC Fort Hood Student Services department at 254-526-1917, email veterans@smla.me.
