Alteryx will help active-duty service members transition to civilian careers by providing them with real-world industry training and certifications in data analytics, as part of the Alteryx SparkED no-cost education program.
"We launched the SparkED program in 2021 to expand data literacy and analytics skills among all learners so that they can use this skill set to solve real-world problems," said Libby Duane Adams, co-founder and chief advocacy officer at Alteryx. "We couldn't be happier to partner with the Department of Defense SkillBridge program and support our transitioning service members and their spouses who sacrifice so much in service to our nation."

With these roles growing in importance, the Alteryx SparkED and SkillBridge partnership will help service members jumpstart their civilian careers with relevant in-demand data and analytics skills. The curriculum provides a vendor-agnostic approach to data science education, as well as hands-on training with Alteryx's industry leading analytics automation solution to enable service members to transform data into business insights. Through the program, participants receive a free Alteryx Designer license, interactive learning paths, and access to the Alteryx Community to guide their training.

"The DoD SkillBridge Program and partnership with Alteryx SparkED will build an incredible talent pipeline equipped with in-demand analytics skills while assisting our transitioning warriors and their families with the next chapter of their careers."
