Heard these guys had the va apprentice program. Anybody know if theres any truth to this. Extra money every month is gonna be a big decider on who i choose.

You have to get an approval letter? Wtf? I thought these companies were linked in with the va to handle this stuff.

It looks like im going to have to go to cdl school just so ill have a truck to test in. I talked to maverick and they dont care how you get your cdl but tmc required school. Im gonna call roehl and ask them. I'd really like to drive with a company at least for a while that gives me my gi bill. But i also want to run flats so that narrows it to roehl and tmc as of now that I know of.
They did start a troops to truckers but it was only on the west coast and i was east coast.

If i can get a pre hire from them i could get on unemployment and go to cdl school under the workers investment act. That'll probly be quicker than waiting on the va to pay. But I've got a family and bills so i need to get out and make some money.

I got an email last night acknowledging that they received my benefits application. So now we'll just wait and see.

Another option, if your rated with disability through the VA you can apply for the VA Vocational Rehabilitation Program.

I am waiting on my V A benifits also. I am going with to the Roehl school. If you drive for them for 120000 miles, your tuition is forgiven. They also have the V A apprentice program. They have a person there that helps with V A stuff. His name is Jacob Howey. He has been very helpful. I was going to attend a private school, but with the V A saying that it could take up to 6 months for benifit letters to go out. So instead of waiting I am going this route. I hope this helps.

Ya you can I did. I went with the community college and did my school. Most community colleges will have a rep to handle most of the paper work

You do not need to do the apprenticeship Program. You go to school get License you go to work for company. If you have your cert from the Va already talk to a school the community colleges will have a VA rep that can answer your questions. I am working for swift
