Veteran Education Benefits
Are you a veteran? You may be eligible for Veterans Education Benefits through the VA, which would provide 100% financial aid for our freight broker training courses. Below we have included detailed information on Chapter 31 VA Benefits to help you understand if you qualify.
Our goal is to help you take advantage of the education benefits available to you and help you achieve your educational goals. Brooke Transportation Training Solutions thanks you for your service!
What is the Chapter 31 Program?
The Chapter 31 program ( Veteran Readiness and Employment Program, or VR&E program) is an amazing resource offered to disabled veterans with a service-connected disability that includes services such as job counseling and job search assistance, as well as on-the-job training to help veterans find employment.
Essentially the Chapter 31 program provides education and career development services to help disabled veterans transition to civilian life after service. Additionally, qualified veterans can also receive financial assistance for school or training programs to get the necessary skills and training to find successful careers.
Eligible Veterans for Chapter 31 VA Benefits
To qualify for Chapter 31 benefits, veterans must meet the following requirements:
- A dishonorable discharge was not received.
- A service-connected disability rating of 10% or higher from the VA.
There is a 12-year period of eligibility for veterans discharged from active duty before January 1, 2013, beginning on the date the veteran received notice or on the date the VA service-connected disability rating was received.
The 12-year basic eligibility period does NOT apply if discharged from active duty on or after January 1, 2013.
Financial aid is based on attendance in a training program, the number of dependents, and the type of training. You can use the educational assistance for tuition, books, and other expenses.
What Disability Rating Do I Need to Be to Qualify for Chapter 31?
While the exact requirements vary by state, if you are a veteran, you may qualify for benefits through the Chapter 31 program if you have a service-connected disability rating of at least 10% with an SEH (serious employment handicap), or a 20% or more disability rating with an employment handicap.
Additionally, the disability must be proven to prevent you from the ability to work or pursue vocational training. If you meet these requirements, a vocational rehabilitation counselor will work with you to develop a plan to achieve your specific employment goals.
What Benefits are Included in the Chapter 31 Program?
The Chapter 31 program provides a range of services to eligible veterans, which include:
Vocational rehab counselors guide veterans in picking a career path that best matches their skills, interests, and abilities.
On-the-job training, vocational training, and non-paid internships can lead to employment.
Financial aid for tuition, fees, books, and education-related expenses for approved schools.
And other services.
Other services that may be offered to eligible veterans through the Ch.31 program include job resume development and other work-readiness support.
Why Freight Broker Training?
Why become a freight broker? Freight brokering is an ideal career for a disabled vet. A freight broker is skilled in matching freight loads with carriers to move those loads to the intended destination. Since the job is done by phone and computer, a freight broker can easily make a great income from the comfort of their home. Family members can help in the job. In fact we often train spouses together so they both have the necessary skills for success.
