Veteran Job Training

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

The U.S. Department of Labor has granted nearly $27 million in funds, to help thousands of veterans succeed in civilian careers through job training programs.

Depending on the program, veteran job training will include some to all of the following.

  • Job counseling
  • Skills assessments and upgrading
  • Classroom or on-the-job occupational training
  • Job search and placement assistance
  • Follow-up services

Did you know? Eligible veterans and disabled veterans are entitled to hiring and retention preference in government jobs. Read Veterans’ Preference under Hiring for more information.

The grants are awarded under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Veterans’ Workforce Investment Program (VWIP) and Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program (HVRP).

State and local workforce investment boards, local public agencies and nonprofit organizations, including faith-based and community organizations, are to administer veteran job training programs funded by the grants.

To find a veteran job training program, the nearest state unemployment office or One-Stop Career Center is likely a good place to start.

For information about other veterans assistance programs and services from the U.S. Department of Labor, start at Veterans’ Employment & Training Service (VETS). See also U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
