Veterans Training


Veterans can now get reimbursed for SSPC Training/Certification Exams. SSPC is pleased to announce that retroactive to June 1, 2010, the training and certification exams listed below have been approved for Veterans Education under the provisions of Title 38, United States Code, Section 3689. The five new exams approved are "**" below.


As a result, veterans can now get reimbursed for SSPC Training and Certification Exams. To receive reimbursement, students must prepay for an SSPC course and then submit the appropriate paper work to The Department of Veterans Affairs. Once the paperwork is processed, The Department of Veterans Affairs will reimburse the student from $550.00 to $1000.00 depending on the program they choose. Reimbursement rates are listed below.


For example, if a veteran registers to take "The Fundamentals of Protective Coatings (C-1)" at the member rate of $995.00, he/she would prepay the $995.00 course fee. After the class has been completed and the paperwork processed by The Department of Veterans Affairs, the student will be reimbursed $550.00 by The Department of Veterans Affairs.
