After courageously serving their country, veterans often turn to real estate as their next career in order to use their skills for leadership, planning, organization and perseverance.
At the REALTOR® Academy, we are proud to accept several VA benefits to ensure our military veterans have access to the courses they need to obtain their real estate license.
We accept the following VA education programs:
Chapter 1606 – Montgomery GI Selected Reserve (MGIB-SR)
The MGIB-SR program provides education and training benefits to eligible members of the Selected Reserve, including the Army Reserve, Navy Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve and Coast Guard Reserve, and the Army National Guard and the Air National Guard. Eligibility for this program is determined by the Selected Reserve components and VA makes the payments.
Chapter 30 – Montgomery GI Bill Active Duty (MGIB-AD)
The MGIB-AD program – sometimes known as Chapter 30 – provides education benefits to veterans and service members who have at least two years of active duty.
Type of Assistance
Assistance may be used for college degree and certificate programs, technical or vocational courses, flight training, apprenticeships or on-the-job training, high-tech training, licensing and certification tests, entrepreneurship training, certain entrance examinations, and correspondence courses. This includes real estate salesperson training and certification!
Chapter 31 – Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment (VR&E)
The VR&E program assists veterans with service-connected disabilities and an employment handicap and service members who are in the process of transitioning from military to civilian employment prepare for, find and keep suitable jobs. This includes training and certification as a real estate salesperson!
If you have at least 90 days of aggregate active duty service after Sept. 10, 2001, and are still on active duty, or if you are an honorably discharged veteran or were discharged with a service-connected disability after 30 days, you may be eligible for this VA-administered program. This program can be used for degree or certificate awards such as real estate salesperson training!
The Post 9/11 may also include monthly housing allowance and annual books and supplies stipend.
