Veteran Employment Through Technology Education Courses (VET TEC) is a five-year trial initiative that began in 2019. According to VA officials, enthusiasm in the program has exceeded expectations, with more than 13,500 applicants and 3,000 people enrolled in the first year alone. Veterans are not charged for the course, but training providers only earn half of their expenses when students join and finish the courses.
