LeaderQuest looking to train veterans

COLORADO SPRINGS - If you're a veteran transitioning into the civilian world, a Colorado IT company wants you!

At LeaderQuest, cyber security career training is a main focus.

On our visit, staff and students demonstrated just how easy it is to 'blue jack.'

That's a term used to hack phones where the Bluetooth is left on.

LeaderQuest certification courses are open to anyone but the company seeks out people with military backgrounds.

“It doesn't matter whether it’s an online instructor or in the classroom, they all have a ton of knowledge and they are imparting all of that in the most sincere, helpful manner,” said Marcus Mingo, LeaderQuest student.

“Being able to teach other vets and help them become smarter and more capable in this career field is better, because they are actually being sought specifically for this particular career field,” said Chuck Danley, LeaderQuest instructor.

LeaderQuest can certify ethical hackers, hacking forensic investigators, information security managers and more.
