What is the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill®?
The Post-9/11 GI Bill® was established to provide support for veterans in reaching their education goals. Post-9/11 G.I. Bill® benefits are available to individuals who served on active duty after September 10, 2001.
Can I use my G.I. Bill® with ComputerMinds.Com?
Yes! ComputerMinds.Com is approved to accept these education benefits.
What will my G.I. Bill® cover?
These benefits may cover up to 100% of course tuition and exam fees, and can provide a percentage stipend for your courseware, lodging, testing and other training-related costs as well.
Why should I use ComputerMinds.Com?
If a training vendor says you can use GI Bill® to cover the cost of certification, but not the training, they are not accepting your G.I. Bill®. You can always submit VA reimbursement for most major vendor exam costs. ComputerMinds.Com can provide a full training solution using G.I. Bill®, with other training-related costs supported as well.

Veterans Vocational Readiness and Employment

For Veterans with service-connected disabilities so severe that they cannot immediately consider work, VR&E offers services to improve their ability to live as independently as possible.
Do I qualify?
At ComputerMinds.Com we are often asked “what are the standards to qualify?” We have learned through experience the best answer is: The Veteran’s Vocational Readiness and Employment Counselors look at each person individually and it is best to not assume your ability for qualification, but to go speak with a counselor and let the counselors determine your eligibility.
Veterans are eligible if they:
- Have received, or will receive an honorable or other than dishonorable discharge
- Have a VA service-connected disability rating of 10% with a serious employment handicap or 20% or more with an employment handicap.
Active Duty Service Members are eligible if they:
- Expect to receive an honorable discharge upon separation from active duty
- Obtain a VA memorandum rating or Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES) rating of 20% or more
How do I Apply?
Schedule to meet with a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (VRC) for comprehensive evaluation to determine if you are entitled to services. A VA Counselor then decides if a veteran has an employment handicap, based upon the results of the comprehensive evaluation. Entitlement to services is established if the veteran has a 20% service-connected disability and an employment handicap. If the disability is 10% service-connected, then a serious employment handicap must be found to establish entitlement to vocational rehabilitation services. After an entitlement decision is made, the veteran and the counselor will work together to develop a rehabilitation plan.
To schedule call or visit (visiting is our preferred method) Veterans Affairs Department:

What Other Benefits May Be Provided?
After a plan is developed and signed, the counselor will assist the Veteran to implement the plans to achieve gainful suitable employment or independent living. The counselor or case manager will provide ongoing counseling, assistance, and coordination of services such as tutorial assistance, training in job-seeking skills, medical and dental referrals, adjustment counseling, payment of training allowance, and other services as required to help the Veteran achieve a career and live as independently as possible.
