  • HVAC Certification
  • Truck Driving
  • EMT Certification
  • Barber/Beautician School

The GI Bill is available to support you through On-the-Job or Apprenticeship Training:

  • Hotel Management
  • Firefighter

The GI Bill offers you assistance with Flight Training:

  • Rotary wing qualification
  • B747-400 Qualification
  • Dual Qualification

The GI Bill is also available for Independent, Distance or Internet training, and for Correspondence Training; you receive lessons in the mail and complete them in a certain timeframe to complete your courses.

The GI Bill also supports your participation in many National Testing Programs, such as SAT, GRE, CLEP, GMAT, LSAT, etc.

Co-op training support from the GI Bill support allows you to attend school and gain valuable work experience at the same time. Some schools partner with employers so you can work in your field and attend classes at the same time.

Your GI Bill-supported education is business-smart, too. If you are interested in starting your own business or you are a current business owner who wants to learn more about succeeding in your small business operation, the GI Bill offers qualified military servicemembers and veterans an opportunity to use their military education benefits in ways that will help them start up or enhance a small business.
