At SMLA, our students are comprised mostly of individuals in career transition, unemployed or underemployed professionals, so the end goal and focus are to help prepare them for placement within the job market. Students acquire and refine their transferable skills by gaining practical knowledge of industry trends, real-life scenarios, and case studies that are examples of the current challenges in the corporate environment.
An SMLA education will tell future employers exactly what skills and knowledge you have acquired, convincing them of the value you can bring to their company and giving you the edge for re-entry into the workforce.
If you are underemployed and want to update and verify your skills an SMLA education will maximize your transferable experience and amplify your strengths for career advancement.

What Our Students Say About Us
“St. Michael’s Learning Academy (SMLA) was very instrumental to me as a transitioning Army Officer. I enrolled into the SAP ERP program whereby I learned a great deal about business in the corporate world and the automation of processes surrounding it... I was able to secure a role as a Risk & Compliance Manager (Information Security) with the company and within just one month I’m already traveling overseas doing BIG things for the organization and the clients that we support."
“Thanks to the certification and the contacts I made through the program, I was able to secure a job that allowed me to not just be able to afford food and rent but be able to save for retirement. This program was a major turn-around point in my life. For that I am grateful to the SAP Veteran to Work program.”
“The SAP certification was key in my marketability. Being a veteran with a certification is what made me a viable candidate for my current job. Indeed, SMLA gave me the tools to find not just a job but a career.”
“The SAP certification program gave me the knowledge to set me apart from my peers as well as highlight the demand for my skill set.”
