Liverpool and Buffalo, NY – September 25, 2014—National Tractor Trailer School announced today that it has been designated a 2015 Military Friendly® School by Victory Media, the leader in successfully connecting the military and civilian worlds.
The Military Friendly® Schools designation process includes extensive research and a data-driven survey of schools nationwide approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill® funding. The school survey, methodology, criteria and weightings are developed with the assistance of an independent Academic Advisory Board comprised of educators from schools across the country. The survey captures over 50 leading practices in supporting military students and is available free of charge to the more than 8,000 schools approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill® funding.
“NTTS is extremely proud to receive the Military Friendly® Schools designation. Training and career job placement has been a priority with veterans since our initial approval to train veterans in 1972. Currently over 30% of students, and 25% of NTTS employees are former military or Active Duty in the Reserves or National Guard. Military students do extremely well in our program and are a sought after demographic for our client companies. Under the new Post-9/11 GI Bill® all tuition, fees and very reasonable housing allowance are paid for qualified service members.”- Harry Kowalchyk, President, NTTS
