The Jack Mountain Bushcraft School is eligible to receive Veteran Readiness & Employment (Chapter 31) benefits from the VA to cover tuition on our programs. Past students have successfully used these benefits. To determine if this would work for you, first check with the VA Vocational Rehab site to see if you are eligible. If so, you will create an individual rehabilitation plan and work with a case manager to implement that plan. Be advised that this process takes time, and sometimes a significant amount of time.
If you have GI Bill Benefits, be advised that it was explained to us that Vocational Rehab is the “last payer”, to be used after other benefits have been exhausted.
If you plan to use VR&E benefits, it must be set up at least three months in advance of the course for which it is to be used. This means you need to start the process at least six months before the beginning of the course. The earlier the better.
