Lifting the Veil
Founded by Bill Green in 2017, Lifting the Veil Academy has been steadfast in building professional, well trained, & career driven Developers. LTV was actually started on a whim based on a challenge to Bill to give back and share the skills he had acquired. Thinking he was just going to teach a few students, Bill decided to teach a class and bestow his Database Development skillset on to a few students. Before long, he had taught hundreds of students, and the request to take the course just kept coming. Since then LTV has taught and/or helped employ thousands of students.
We primarily offer:
SQL Server Database Development and Business Intelligence
Oracle Financial Applications
Salesforce Solutions Architect
We offer different classes at different times. Each month new classes are launched.
We at LTV believe in offering you a down to earth, friendly, professional, and courteous learning environment. We are excited about the future and we definitely look forward to speaking with you about launching your new IT career!

How it works
What's the time commitment & schedule to complete the course?Our classes are web-based, and usually take 4 to 5 months to complete (except the Salesforce Architecture class is 7 months long). Classes are taught nightly; the exact weeknights vary based on each class taught by each instructor. We tend to have classes on weeknights and all times we list for start times are Eastern Standard Time. We have multiple classes running at different times, so it would be best to schedule a consultation and we can give you the exact times the classes will occur. Classes usually lasts anywhere from 1 1/2 hour to 2 hours. Once you've completed the course you can join our voluntary nightly study sessions and once a week mock interviews on certain nights.
How long will it take me to become job ready?The average student becomes job ready within 5 to 6 months (including the class). Expect a few more months for Salesforce Architecture. These students commit to attending classes, studying at least one hour a day, and completing all assignments. Keep in mind every student is different and results will vary. The total time is anywhere from 100 to 160 hours of self studying.
