Training with a Purpose


Pragmatic Works Foundation is a non-profit technology training program dedicated to helping motivated and passionate individuals change their lives by learning highly in-demand skills. With a focus on veterans transitioning back into the civilian workforce, the unemployed and the under-employed, we can help launch participants onto a new and rewarding career path.


Pragmatic Works Foundation was created in January 2009 by the founder and CEO Brian Knight to give back to the community he grew up in. “The veterans we typically see come through the program may have had a specific technical job in the military, but when they try to transition to the civilian world, they find that hiring managers are seeking a broader skill base,” says Knight. “The Foundation provides training to help grow those specialized skills learned in the military into skills that are universally desired.” Although preference is given to returning veterans, anyone who is looking to further their skillset but lacks the financial means to do so is welcome to apply.

Due to COVID, we're suspending live Foundation classes.
