Will the GI Bill Pay for Training at a Trade School?

Q: I wanted to know if the GI Bill would cover a trade school? I am looking to get my A+ and C++ certifications. I have already done some schooling but need to finish. Would it cover a computer trade school and, if so, any specific ones?

A: It really depends on which G.I. Bill you are referring to. The Montgomery G.I. Bill will pay for the training and tests for cover the types of training you are referring to – certifications, non-degree producing. On the other hand, the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill leans more toward the degree-producing courses and pays for only one certification test and none of the training.

To answer your second question, yes, the Montgomery G.I. Bill will cover computer trade schools. As far as which trade schools the Montgomery G.I. Bill covers, it depends on if the school is a VA-approved school. If you have a few schools in mind, you can look them up and see if they are already VA-approved schools.
