Allied has been tapped as a participating vocational school of the new Army Vocational/Technical (AVOTEC) Pilot Program -- making it 1 of 2 approved schools in California to provide education under the program.
Allied Schools worked directly with the Army, including an in-depth application process, to be added as an approved education provider. As a result, soldiers can now enroll in certificate programs under the AVOTEC program at Allied and benefit from 100% online real estate, medical and business career training programs.
"We are proud to serve the military community and provide a means for soldiers to get in-demand career training," said George Achenbach, president of Allied Schools. "Online vocational courses make it possible for these men and women to create fulfilling post-Army careers and we are pleased to play a part in this beneficial program."
The AVOTEC Pilot Program enables soldiers to use up to $4,500 to get training for a smooth transition into their post-Army career. Their education must be finished in less than 18 months; and they must enroll before September 30, 2009 to be eligible.
