Our STRAC® training program was intentionally structured to include schedules, demands, and expectations that are familiar to any veteran to reduce the risk of failure. We are also aware of the financial burden that education costs can have and because of this, veterans are eligible to enter the training program at no personal cost if approved by a VR&E counselor for attendance.
