A Commitment to Professional Development

Verrill is devoted to the development of our staff. It was through this commitment that our Continuing Verrill Education (CVE) program was created. The firm wants to ensure that our staff members are provided with the knowledge and tools necessary not only to succeed, but to thrive and to develop their careers at Verrill. Our additional Continuing Cyber Education (CCE) program ensures our team is provided with the latest in privacy and cybersecurity best practices.

CVE/CCE begins on an employee's first day with our comprehensive orientation program and continues throughout their career with technical and non-technical training in classroom groups, one-on-one sessions, lunch & learns, and on-demand webinars. The CVE program is an integral part of the firm's internal fabric.
