Did you know that it is possible to use GI Bill benefits for on-the-job Training and Apprenticeship Training?  It is possible to receive a monthly educational benefit check from the Department of Veterans Affairs for training in an approved OJT or Apprenticeship program. 


WHAT IS ON-THE-JOB TRAINING? 
OJT is training received while actually performing a job and earning wages.  OJT programs must be at least six months up to two years in length to qualify. Examples of OJT programs include deputy sheriff, painter, cook, production equipment mechanic, auto mechanic, correctional officer, and police officer.  


WHAT IS APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING? 
Apprenticeship training is on-the-job training coupled with technical instruction (usually a minimum of 144 hours per year).  Apprenticeships are normally from two to five years in length.  Examples include electrician, iron worker, carpenter, plumber, and firefighter.  

There are time limits involved, and approval of a program may be backdated for up to one year for benefit purposes.  As a general rule, veterans have 10 years after their separation from service to use their GI Bill benefit. Chapter 34 GI Bill (Vietnam Era) ended on December 31, 1989; however, some Chapter 34 veterans are eligible for benefits under Chapter 30. 


HOW TO BEGIN 
If you do not have a job, or are not currently working in the occupation you want, contact a local Arkansas Department of Workforce Services office.  The veteran representative should be able to find an employer who may offer the kind of training needed to reach your occupational objective. 
Next, have your employer contact the Arkansas State Approving Agency to determine the necessary steps to get the training program approved. Many, but not all occupations, can be approved. 
Contact the Veterans Affairs office at 1-888-442-4551 to determine your specific eligibility for educational benefits or your local county Veterans Service officer. 


WHAT IS THE AMOUNT OF A MONTHLY BENEFIT CHECK?  
Chapter 30 applies to those entering active duty after July 1, 1985, and to those who contributed to the Montgomery G.I. Bill.  For veterans whose period of active duty was three years or more, the monthly allowance effective October 1, 2005, will be as follows: 

First 6 months $913.75

Second 6 months $698.75
Remainder of training $483.75

Or, for veterans whose initial period of active duty was less than three years

First 6 months $742.05

Second 6 months $567.05

Remainder of training $392.85
