Viridis Learning

Viridis Learning was inspired by founder and veteran Felix W. Ortiz III’s transition out of the U.S. Army, in which he served in the JAG Corps. Upon leaving the military, he and his fellow soldiers utilized the Army Career and Alumni Program (ACAP) to gain access to resources and workshops that would help them with their job searches. However, it was during this transition process that Felix and his fellow soldiers experienced a significant problem: he and fellow soldiers did not know what they desired to do for a career. They did not know which jobs would best suit their skill sets or would be financially rewarding. Nor did they know which pathways to take to gain career qualifications. Moreover, the numerous technological tools and resources offered by the ACAP program for finding jobs were not streamlined, and were often disjointed. It was then that the idea to develop advanced algorithmic technology to assist students and job seekers was born. Today, Viridis Learning is dedicated to helping students identify and pursue specific, lifelong career pathways and provide them with the educational and certification resources to follow them.
