The date of the holiday honors the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918, which marked the armistice ending World War I. The United Kingdom, France, Australia, and Canada also commemorate the veterans of World War I and World War II on or near Nov. 11: Canada has Remembrance Day, while Britain has Remembrance Sunday (the second Sunday of November).
iNARTE, as many know, has military ties, having been created at the request of the U.S. Navy, which sought to have a credible and respected certification entity to credential engineers and technicians in vital areas.
Since 2016 the managing director of iNARTE, Christian Thornton, has gone to great lengths as a 12-year Navy veteran himself, to reaffirm and strengthen the ties with the U.S. military and the overall veteran community. iNARTE established programs to help veterans achieve certification and recognition from their time in active service. This has included removing application fees for service members and veterans, and engaging with payment programs such as the COOL programs to help veterans gain their certification at no direct cost to them.
To all service members past and present, all around the world, thank you for your service and welcome home.
