Veterans Educational Benefits: Veterans of the Armed Services are generally eligible for educational benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The VA pays some benefits directly to the veteran/student, and some to the school, depending upon which program the veteran/student participates in. The veteran/student must apply for benefits directly with the VA, and Philadelphia Technician Training Institute will certify the student’s enrollment and academic progress to the VA. The VA makes monthly payments to the student or school as appropriate based upon that certification.

Veterans with a service-connected disability and children/dependents of veterans who were disabled or killed in the line of duty may be eligible for even more generous benefits.

For more information about VA educational benefits, please contact the Department of Veterans Affairs at 1-888-GI BILL-1 (1-888-442-4551) or visit their website at: VA Educational Benefits webpage.
