The Electronic Systems Professional Alliance (ESPA) Certified-EST Certification has recently been approved for veterans eligible to receive Montgomery GI Bill benefits.
The approved status allows eligible veterans, active duty service members and reservists who receive education funding through the GI Bill to use those funds to cover the costs of the ESPA Certified-EST exam.
ESPA certification applies to many technology career verticals including residential and commercial audio and video, computers, lighting, automation controls, security, alarm, telecom, cable, satellite, and green technologies, plus many general sectors (including architecture, engineering, and building trades) whose workers would benefit from learning entry-level electronic systems technician skills.
“We are excited that ESPA certification has been approved for GI Bill benefits,” said Kerry Moyer, ESPA chairman of the board. “We believe ESPA’s entry-level education puts electronic systems technicians (ESTs) on the right career path to help them take control of their professional lives.”
ESPA’s Certification program has been approved by the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs, State Approving Agency and by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs at the federal level for participation in VA education benefit program.
In order to receive the benefits to cover exam costs, the eligible veteran or service member must complete an application form before taking the exam. Those eligible can find the application online here or may call 1.888.GI BILL.1 to receive a copy by mail.
