Champion’s Reaction:

“Thank you for the nomination and recognition. We feel honored to serve our veterans into high-skilled/high-wage jobs in the telecommunication industry. They are the inspiration representing the next generation of technicians supporting America’s telecommunication 5G infrastructure. The success of our training program, job placement outcomes and job retention totals are a direct reflection of the commitment and resolve of veterans that we serve. They are an inspiration that brings hope to our society as we rebuild our workforce in a post-COVID environment. We are honored to serve those who have served our freedom.”

Champion’s Job Responsibilities:

Cesar is responsible for overseeing operations for Learning Alliance, a school based out of Tampa, Fla. The School Learning Alliance is focused on providing transitioning military men and women training and placement services in the telecommunications industry. Cesar’s overall responsibilities involve building and sustaining relationships with organizations to identify their workforce shortage in the growing telecom industry.

Why Ruiz was nominated for the Veteran Champions of the Year in Corporate America Award:

In the past three years Learning Alliance has grown tremendously, with the growth of 5G and the much needed workforce in the telecommunication industry. Cesar was able to identify the workforce shortage in telecom by providing transitioning military veterans an opportunity to receive the training and certifications they need to start a career. Recently T-Mobile partnered with Learning Alliance in providing funding to the NextTech Diversity Program. The initiative is centered around providing training and career placement opportunities to underrepresented candidates to take on roles as 5G network technicians. 2022 will be a big year for Learning Alliance with the expectation to have over 1,000 graduates certified and placed in the wireless sector.
