Veterans Technology Education Courses

If you want to gain computer experience to start or advance your career in the high-technology industry, find out if you’re eligible for our Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VET TEC) program that matches you with a leading training provider to help you develop high-tech skills.


What types of training does VET TEC cover?

You can get training in one of these high-demand training areas:

  • Computer software
  • Computer programming
  • Data processing
  • Information science
  • Media applications


What benefits can I get through this program?

With VET TEC, you can get:

  • Tuition for a full-time high-tech training program
  • Money for housing during your training

Note: If you're on active duty, you're not eligible to receive a housing allowance.

If you attend your training program in person, your housing stipend will be equal to the monthly military Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) for an E-5 with dependents. This is based on the zip code where you attend your training.

If you participate in an online program, your stipend will be half of the BAH national average for an E-5 with dependents.

Note: If you don’t attend a training for a full month, the VA will prorate your housing payment for the days you train.
