TRANSITIONING MILITARY

The transition from military to civilian life has been challenging and confusing for two-thirds of veterans in the United States, with approximately 69% of veterans reporting that finding a job is the greatest hurdle (prudential.com). National Aviation Academy (NAA) can assist in making the transition easier by helping you sort through the issues and preparing you for a career in the growing field of aviation maintenance.

NAA has been training former military personnel for over 80 years and is approved for those utilizing their educational benefits, including the G.I. Bill®. The monthly entitlement is based on the number of clock hours attended each week. NAA also has G.I. Jobs credentials and has been on the Military Friendly Schools List since 2012.

More than 35% of students and 75% of instructional staff have previously served in a military branch creating a network of guidance and support. We are committed to helping military service members and veterans develop the skills and educational proficiency to secure a lasting career as they make the transition from military to civilian life.

We understand that brave men and women of the armed forces will want to put the same dedication with which they served into the next phase of their lives.

PENDING VETERAN AFFAIRS (VA) PAYMENT POLICY

Section 103 of PL 115-407, ‘Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018’, amends Title 38 US Code 3679 by adding a new subsection (e) that requires disapproval of courses of education, beginning August 1, 2019, at any educational institution that does not have a policy in place that will allow an individual to attend or participate in a course of education, pending VA payment, providing the individual submits a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under Chapter 31 or 33

National Aviation Academy Policy:

In accordance with Title 38 US Code 3679 subsection (e) of the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, National Aviation Academy (NAA) will not impose a penalty on any student using veterans education benefits under Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment) or Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 GI Bill®) because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of funding from the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA).

NAA will not:

  • Prevent the student from attending or participating in the course of education during periods in which there is a delayed disbursement;
  • Assess late payment fees if the financial obligation is fully funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
  • Require the student to secure alternative or additional funding for delayed disbursements;
  • Deny the student access to institutional facilities and services available to other students who have satisfied their tuition and fee bills.

However, to qualify for this provision, such students may be required to: 

  • Produce the VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) by the first day of class;
  • Provide a written request to be certified;
  • Provide additional information needed to properly certify the enrollment as described in other institutional policies
