After the Service: Trade School & Veterans - Resources for turning your military skills into a civilian career.
The popular GI Bills like the Post-9/11 GI Bill, Montgomery GI Bill and Vocational Rehabilitation are all programs veterans can use to learn a vocational skill. Skilled trades like automotive repair and truck driving or building trades such as carpentry, plumbing and electrical are just some of the popular trades selected by veterans. Attention-to-detail and the ability to work independently or on a team are just examples of the many skills learned in the military that adapt well to the trade industry. This guide outlines options for veterans to learn a vocation using a GI Bill, along with scholarships, resources, and a directory of transferable skills.
