VA Helping Veterans Secure Computer Technology Jobs; Robert Wilkie Quoted

1 min read

The Department of Veterans Affairs has announced a new effort to help former servicemen prepare for computer-focused careers, and is seeking professionals who would serve as trainers. The Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses program intends to help veterans enter workforces in the areas of information technology, information science, media application, data processing and other computer-related fields, VA said Wednesday.

The department will pay for 25 percent of the tuition upon the beginning of the veteran's VET TEC program course, and recompense another 25 percent upon graduation. VA will then pay the remaining half of the tuition once the veteran secures a job in the industry corresponding to the course.

“We are invested in ensuring Veterans make successful transitions into their post-military career,” said Robert Wilkie, VA secretary.
