A new pilot program from the Department of Veterans Affairs aims to help student veterans enroll in non-traditional programs that teach high-tech skills. Dubbed the Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VET TEC) program, it was announced Feb. 13. The program, set to start in April, focuses on high-tech skills that are in demand in today's workplace, the VA says. VET TEC will pay you a housing allowance and take care of tuition costs just like the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Classes must be in one of five areas: information science; computer programming; data processing; media applications; or computer software. Information on how to apply has not yet been released.
