NS2 Serves™ is an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established by Mark Testoni, the President of SAP National Security Services, Inc.® (SAP NS2®) to give back to the community SAP serves by training and employing veterans in high-tech careers.
As its signature initiative, NS2 Serves offers training and employment assistance to recent veterans of U.S. national security missions. The course is open to post-9/11 U.S. military service veterans and reservists (including disabled veterans) and Gold Star spouses who meet certain eligibility requirements. Full-time, paid participants are trained in world-class software solutions that support U.S. national security, leading to official SAP certifications, which are valuable in many career paths in the U.S. and worldwide. The training program was modeled on the successful Mawared Young Professionals Program offered by the SAP Training and Development Institute in Dubai.
As of May 2016, NS2 Serves is proud to have trained over 100 graduates within its first three years.
