Who Qualifies for disABLEDperson, Inc.’s Microsoft Imagine Academy
Program?

disABLEDperson, Inc. is offering our program to disabled
American veterans/American wounded warriors only. That being said, we will
qualify all potential candidates into our program to ensure that they are indeed
American WWs. We will do so in the following ways: We are working with the
military’s transition command centers. WWs who are transitioning from the
military to civilian life should contact their WW Command Center. The WW command center will help you.

WWs who have been out of the military for a period of time and
want to participate are welcome as long as they qualify. How will these WWs
qualify? By presenting disABLEDperson, Inc. upon request with the proper
authentic documentation that you indeed sustained your disability while on
active duty with the U.S. Military. To do this, we suggest that you contact your
nearest state veteran representative. You can use this site to find that person.

http://dvoplverlocator.nvti.ucdenver.edu/
. If this site doesn’t work for
you, simply Google the terms DVOP or LVER and your state and a directory will
come up.

Veterans who have sustained a non military disability
do not qualify for our program. Our decision on program qualification and who
participates is ours alone and is final upon determination.

For WWs referred by DVOPs or LVERs, an email from these
counselors will do to qualify you.

Note: you will receive your access only
after you are qualified!

Once qualified, it is up
to you to search the


Microsoft Imagine Academy
Website

to determine what courses and path you want to take. We will allow you to complete
the necessary coursework for your chosen path. You must designate a path to us. If you do not, will will terminate your access. Some paths require 3 courses,
some 5, and others more.

IMPORTANT NOTE: disABLEDperson, Inc. is not a vocational institution
and this offering does not constitute any implication as such. We cannot and
will not help a WW determine a career path by suggesting courses that may lead
to a career path. The WW needs to make that determination themselves or with the
guidance of a trained vocational counselor. We are offering this program simply
as a public service and to give back to those who gave so much for us.

The eLearning courses are self paced and inclusive. There
are lessons and written materials within the program that will help you study.
Should the WW wish to purchase books or software, they can do so at their own
discretion. The book or software purchase transaction will be between the WW and
the Microsoft Imagine Academy Website. disABLEDperson, Inc. cannot and will not get
involved in any such transactions. These transactions are not part of our
non-profit mission and therefore we cannot be part of it.

WW
Definition for the purposes of our program is the same as that of the military:
Veterans who have a 30 percent or more compensable disability that either
resulted from injury or disease received in the line of duty as a direct result
of armed conflict, or was caused by an instrumentality of war and was incurred
in the line of duty during a period of war as defined in section 101(11) of
title 38, U. S. C. Physical disability, visual disability, auditory disability, emotional/psychological disability such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are all welcome as long as you meet the criteria of 30 percent active military duty.
