NoVA Post aids warriors in transition


The SAME Northern Virginia (NoVa) Post recently launched the National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET) program. The NICET certification process is a pilot program designed to aid all veterans transitioning into the public sector.

On March 8, 2013, senior non-commissioned officers (NCOs) and NICET representatives attended the presentation to the 249th Engineer Battalion at the Fort Belvoir Officers’ Club in Fort Belvoir, Va. Mike Clarke, Chief Operating Executive, NICET, and his team, briefed the attendees on the new certification program. After the presentation, the NCOs completed registration and submitted documents to NICET. As a token of appreciation and recognition, NoVA Post President Bill Kilpatrick presented a Post Commemorative Coin to Mike Clarke.
