Central Texas College

Central Texas College (CTC) recently hosted a completion ceremony to recognize 11 graduates of the second CTC-Fort Hood Systems, Applications and Products in Data Processing (SAP) cohort program. A collaborative effort between CTC, Fort Hood and St. Michael’s Learning Academy in Houston, the program is designed to provide transitioning active-duty military personnel and veterans with high-tech training in SAP, the world’s business software leader.

The SAP cohort is a 10-week full-time program consisting of five non-credit classes which include hands-on competency instruction. Transitioning soldiers received 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. Upon completion, the students earned a Certificate of Completion and will receive job placement assistance for a career as a SAP implementation consultant.  

SAP is the market leader in enterprise application software. The CTC-Fort Hood cohort program furnishes the graduates with the necessary training to compete for employment opportunities across 25 industries including energy and national resources, financial services, public services and service industries. “The CTC-Fort Hood SAP cohort is another example of our partnership commitment to Fort Hood,” said Jim Yeonopolus, CTC chancellor. “We are firm believers in providing career opportunities for transitioning military members as one way of recognizing their choice to serve our country.”

Completing the second CTC-Fort Hood SAP cohort program were Alanta Artellano, Kwang Bae, Mawugnon Koffi, Zarek Leal, Annitra Nesbitt, Jonathan Ortiz-Ryals, Keryx Quiban, Ysela Quintero, Cassie Rideaux, Ramil Sabado and Hamidou Zoungrana.

Veterans and transitioning military members interested in the SAP program can obtain more information by contacting the CTC Fort Hood Student Services department at 254-526-1917.
