Veterans Training Program, Financial Options Expand Student Base for all Peak Programs
Fully committed to students’ education and its belief that students of all backgrounds and financial situations should have access to quality training, Peak Technical Institute is proud to be an approved provider of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity (WIOA) and G.I. Bill® benefits.
Partnering with WIOA and Veterans training has helped grow Peak’s student base across all of its programs – Class A Commercial Driver License, UXO Global unexploded ordnance, hospitality and estate management training.
To date, Peak has had 12 VA students and over 30 WIOA students attend all three Peak programs.
WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employees with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.
“The relationship with WIOA is beneficial for students because there are many people who want to make positive changes in their lives and help support themselves and their families but are not financially able to acquire proper training,” Peak Institutional Director Blake Bancroft said. “WIOA provides them funding and Peak provides the training to help them reach their goals.”
Peak assists student with job placement, bringing in trucking companies to discuss employment opportunities for students after graduation.
Peak is also proud to now be approved for veterans training, including the post 9/11 G.I. Bill® and Vocational Rehabilitation.
“After serving their country, these men and women can use G.I. Bill® benefits to pay for their education or the education of a family member,” Bancroft said. “They don’t have to worry about paying out of pocket for training as they look to take the next step in their careers.”
