Where Can I Find the VA’s OJT Information?

Q: I’m the local rep for the Border Patrol OJT program. I can’t find any OJT info on your new site. Where did it go? The person I just talked to said the best way an agent can get an answer is to use the ask a question section. But that’s not you, right? I would really like more info about the OJT program so I can answer questions better.

A: No, that is not us, but I can answer your question. The website the person you talked to was referring to the VA’s Submit a Question Website. I went to that website and there one post referring to the OJT program as far as how entitlements are charged for those in the program. Also, the pay structure is different for OJT students. The VA shows a student gets a GI Bill monthly pay of:

  • $1,026 for the first six months of training;
  • $752.40 for the second six months;
  • $478.80 for the remaining months of the program.

As far as where the OJT information went, when the VA re-arranged everything, it ended up being listed as a pamphlet under Education Resources – the third one down from the top. Here is another OJT fact sheet that talks about the:

  • Program;
  • Wages;
  • and the training facility.

For a veteran that likes working with his/her hands, an apprenticeship/OJT program, paid for by the Montgomery GI Bill, can lead to a great career.
