Training for Military Service Members and Veterans

For many years, National Training, Inc.’s Heavy Equipment Operator School has been an active participant in various military programs available to service members and veterans.

Our programs are approved by DANTES to be offered to service members and approved for the training of veterans to accept tuition benefits under the various GI Bill programs. If you would like to use your GI Bill VA benefits to become a heavy equipment operator, we have just what you’re looking for.

Important Notes about Using Your VA Benefits

Some points are worth mentioning, if you’re interested in our programs. Each service member on active duty should check in with his or her Education Office to discuss options for using their VA benefits for these programs. If you are preparing to discharge from the military, you might want to speak with a transition specialist, if one is available where you are stationed.

Before we can enroll you into one of our programs, there are several steps to follow with the VA to apply for your GI Bill benefits. Some of these are outlined on the VA page in our Resources section of this website, but for complete details on the process, visit VA
