If your military service is ending and you’re looking for a new career, don’t dismiss the trucking industry. Not only are your military skills transferable, but as a veteran, you may be eligible to use funding through the Veterans Administration to start your career in the civilian workforce.
United States Truck Driving School participates in programs that give veterans the opportunity to use financial assistance for CDL training.
What VA Benefits Can I Use
The VA provides a variety of benefits and services to active duty service members, veterans, and their families. Some of these include the Montgomery Bill, Post 9/11 GI Bill, or the Special Vocational Training Program. In addition, some carriers provide a Tuition Reimbursement Program to those who have used VA benefits to pay for CDL training.
Applying for Benefits
Find out if you’re eligible for VA education benefits and apply online using the VA eBenefits website. Make sure you have access to your social security number, education, and military history. You’ll also need basic information on the CDL program you’ll be enrolling in.
