    Amazing course!

    Sales Platoon is an incredible resource for any military member leaving Active Duty service. The number of tools I received to help not only with a sales career, but any career AND ways to maximize your life for success is innumerable. You cannot find anything like Raleigh Wilkins' teachings anywhere online. Not only that, he sets aside time for you personally to help with any questions or concerns you have. I am going to recommend this course to everyone I ever served in the military wi...

    US Air Force Retired

    I wanted to take the knowledge and skills that I developed in the Air Force and go into a completely different career.  I never considered sales as an option before speaking with Sales Platoon, but afterward developed an interest in tech sales. Unfortunately, when I read job postings, it was obvious that I lacked key skills; even for entry-level positions.  Sales Platoon is teaching people how to sell anything, not just one product.  The hands-on approach allows me to experience managing...

    Sales Apprenticeship

     For me, I wanted to take the skillsets I developed in the military and go into a completely different industry.  I was entertaining tech sales; and when I started to read the job postings, I knew I had to close some gaps- fast.  Thank you to my military counselors for introducing me to Sales Platoon.  I’m not learning how to “sell a product,” I’m learning how to sell.  I received hands on experience and training in; the sales cycle, managing my book of business, developing pipeline and ...

    Best Sales Skillbridge out there

    Sales Platoon is absolutely worth all the time and effort you put into it. The description says it doesn't take the G.I. Bill and that's because it is free to veterans and active duty. They not only teach you how to sell, but they teach you how to manage yourself. You are able to interview with any company they are partnered with, but also encourage you to search for companies you might like to work for. you will graduate with complete confidence in your ability to be successful.

    Fellow

    My Sales Platoon has been a great experience since day one. I have gained so much knowledge and a better understanding of B2B sales. Raleigh has truly explained how to use LinkedIn and all its capabilities that I wasn’t aware of. I have learned how to communicate with not just fellow veterans but also with CEOs and hiring managers in order to present myself for informational interviews. Sales Platoon has equipped me not with just skills on how to sell products but how to sell myself to p...

    Business Development Rep

    As a current Cohort member I have found this program to be very insightful.  The access to the many different Sales tools and knowledge that Raleigh has provided is TOP-NOTCH.  Coming out of a 21 year military career my knowledge about Corporate B2B Sales was at a minimum, I'm now "in the know" and feel prepared to enter the corporate/civilian world.

    Sales Platoon was an absolute home run for me! I went from 20 years of active duty Air Force with zero sales experience to an amazing career with Samsung thanks to the teachings and leadership from Raleigh at Sales Platoon. The curriculum is unlike anything else I came across when deciding on sales training to go with as I transitioned out of the military and I can't recommend it highly enough. We were able to get real-world hands-on training with CRM tools, prospecting, cold calling, an...

We all know that veterans make great coders: discipline, collaboration, and technical skills are all synonymous with the military. Until 2017, the GI Bill, which covers education benefits for veterans, was slow to cover code schools, accelerated learning programs, or online education. However, with the enactment of the Forever GI Bill in August 2017, it's becoming easier for coding bootcamps ...
