Vet2Tech is a non-profit organization helping qualified veterans pay for industry-specific vocational training through scholarship funding. TechU24/7 is the developer of a 3-D interactive online training course that equips entry-level candidates with the fundamental skills needed to be hired as commercial food equipment repair technicians. Training can be completed in about one month and is approved through the GI Bill’s Licensing and Certification Approval System (LACAS).

Skilled service technicians are in great demand. TechU24/7’s program trains technicians in the fundamentals of electricity, gas, and steam, as they pertain to commercial restaurant equipment.

According to industry estimates, approximately 15,000 jobs are available nationwide right now, and demand is expected to increase 7% over the next five years. These jobs cannot be exported, and offer competitive salaries and benefits.

Veterans are perfect candidates for these jobs. They are accustomed to working hard and smart for the good of an organization. They are adept learners, organized, team players and possess integrity beyond reproach. It is a win-win situation. Service companies have an opportunity to fill open technician positions with veterans who exemplify outstanding character and professionalism, thereby raising the level of service they provide to their customers, and veterans have the opportunity to begin new careers in high-demand, well-respected jobs with significant growth opportunity.

Vet2Tech and TechU24/7 are committed to bridging the gap between job training and job placement. Every graduate of this online program is guaranteed an in-person job interview with one of the nearly 1,000 hiring service companies in their area who have joined our efforts to put veterans to work.
