The event is a collaboration of Southwest Ohio Career Technical Centers (CTCs) to provide veterans with information about local, accredited career education opportunities that can lead to employment in a year or less, and the financial aid options that can help them pay for their education.

“Employers are eager to hire veterans, because they have valuable skills and discipline,” said Scott Palmer, Executive Director of Butler Tech Adult Education. “Career technical education is a great option for veterans since they can quickly earn credentials and launch rewarding careers.”

CTCs participating with Butler Tech are Grant Career Center, Great Oaks Career Campuses, Miami Valley Career Technology Center and Warren County Career Center. Each CTC will share information about adult career training programs, focusing on those that are approved by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for benefits.

  • Advanced Manufacturing Technology
  • Basic Police Academy
  • Commercial Drivers License Class A
  • Commercial Drivers License Class B
  • Emergency Medical Technician
  • EMS Certificates

  • Industrial Maintenance Technology
  • Industrial Welding
  • Medical Assisting

  • Practical Nursing
  • Private Security
  • State Tested Nurse Aide
Representatives from the Butler County Veterans Service Commission will be available at the event to discuss federal, state, and county benefits that are available to veterans.

Veterans who attend the event will have the opportunity to have one-on-one discussions about programs they are interested, available financial aid and employment prospects once training is complete. Butler Tech Workforce Services will be providing attending veterans with resume writing assistance including how to translate their skills and background experience for their resume.

Each of the five participating CTC’s will be giving away a $200.00 program tuition certificate via a raffle drawing that will be held at the end of the evening. Attending Veterans can enter to win a certificate from the CTC of their choice. The certificate is transferrable and can be used toward tuition for any full or part time program. Veterans who have entered the drawing do not have to be present at the time of the drawing to win.
