SSPC is an approved License & Certification facility for Veterans Education benefits by the Pennsylvania State Approving Agency. Veterans and eligible dependents should visit the GI Bill® website to determine eligibility by clicking here. "GI Bill®” is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).  More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website here

As a result, veterans can now get reimbursed for SSPC Training and Certification Exams. To receive reimbursement, students must prepay for an SSPC course and then submit the appropriate paperwork to The Department of Veterans Affairs. Once the paperwork is processed, The Department of Veterans Affairs will reimburse the student. 

Download the "APPLICATION FOR REIMBURSEMENT FORM" to submit to the Department of Veterans Affairs after you complete SSPC Training.
