Will the GI Bill Pay for an Aircraft Dispatcher Training Course?

Author Ron Kness is no longer in the service.

Q: Can the GI Bill compensate me for aircraft dispatcher training course? I wish to continue my training as an aircraft dispatcher & hopefully hold a license. Thank you.

A: The Montgomery GI Bill would probably cover this type of training, plus if you have enough GI Bill entitlements left after your training, you could get reimbursed up to $2,000 per license test and it includes retests also, if you don’t pass the first time.

On the other hand, the Post 9/11 GI Bill would most likely not pay for your course, however, it could reimburse you one time up to the same amount for your test. The Post 9/11 GI Bill focuses toward degree-producing courses and generally does not pay for any type of non-degree, license or certification training.

However, with that said, if you find your course taught at an accredited institution of higher learning degree-producing school, i.e college or university, your training may be covered. That would be a determination by the VA, but I recommend you get approval to use your Post 9/11 GI Bill for this course prior to enrolling.
