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 Administration 

  • Salesforce Solutions Architect

  • Data Science

  • Data Engineering

  • Data Analytics

  • DevOpps Engineering

  • Blockchain Development

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.
  • How much does the course cost?
    The monthly subscription costs $297 per month. We also offer other packages as well.
  • How can I cancel my membership?
    Simple, if you purchased a learning Package, give us a 2 week notice before the next payment is due and we will cancel your monthly membership.
  • What type of positions have your students landed after finishing the course?
    The majority of our students have received varios developer positions including: Reports Developer ETL Developer SQL Server Database Developer Business Intelligence Developer Others have leveraged this course material to land other developer positions, such as: Salesforce Developer/ Architect Python Developer
  • What materials or resources do I need?
    To become a developer, you'll need a laptop and access to a suite of software tools and environments. We provide those software tools and environments for you. You can either install the software on your own laptop, or you can rent a virtual machine with everything already installed for $60 per month. If you have a Macbook the software can be installed but it would be wiser to rent a virtual machine. You need at least 100 Gigs of space on your laptop to install the software. All Software is free to download. In terms of books and reading material, we provide electronic versions of all learning materials. The most successful students choose to purchase additional resources as well.
  • Do you guarantee I will land a job?
    No, we cannot guarantee employment in any form. There are many factors that determine if a company will hire you or not. Some of these factors are beyond the scope of the training provided in this course. However, we do guarantee that after taking our course, you will have the technical skills needed to hold your own in technical interviews related to the subject matter taught in our course.
  • What is your refund Policy?
    In light of the fact that this is a service industry we cannot issue refunds. However if you desire a refund within 48 hours of a payment we will completely reverse your payment and issue a refund.
  • Do you offer any certifications or certificates?
    We don't offer any certifications. However, after completing our course you will have a technical interview. If you are able to pass our technical interview process you will recieve a certificate of completion. We also offer assistance in helping each student complete update their resume with their new skills.
