On August 2, 2018, ITA International and Virginia Tech kicked off their partnership in the Data Analytics Education program at a welcome presentation and reception. The program was designed to train transitioning service members and veterans in the fast growing field of Data Analytics, and was met with wide support from public officials at the local, state, and federal levels.
Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-R) was able to connect virtually to welcome and congratulate all of the students, and also in attendance were Delegate David Yancey, Virginia House of Delegates, 94th District and Vice Mayor Tina Vick, City of Newport News.
“ITA is proud to partner with Virginia Tech to offer the Data Analytics Program. ITA is founded on the guiding principle of "Serving those In The Arena" and we firmly believe in helping those men and women who voluntarily signed up to serve our country. The Data Analytics Program is another way for ITA to help provide training and employment opportunities for our veterans.” ~ Mike Melo, CEO of ITA International
