AUSTIN -- The Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) has announced the launch of Skills for Veterans, an initiative to address the unique challenges and training needs of veterans who served in the military post 9/11, many of whom are returning to the Texas work force. The commission has designated $1 million from the state’s Skills Development Fund to establish the initiative, which offsets employer-training costs for eligible veteran new hires in an effort to expedite the return of veterans to the work force. Gov. Rick Perry touted the industry-driven initiative during a recent Veterans Day ceremony in Dime Box.

Skills for veterans will provide post-9/11 veterans with training that employers identify as necessary for the business’s growth. The initiative will provide up to $1,450 for tuition and fees in a 12-month period for each eligible veteran new hire. Private employers in Texas must partner with public community and technical colleges in their area or the Texas Engineering Extension Service (TEEX) to develop the training programs.

Texas Workforce Com-mission Chairman Andres Alcantar said, “Skills for Veterans will help ensure that these service men and women have the opportunity to receive training and occupational certifications in high-demand industries, such as oil and gas.”

The hourly wage for each veteran trained under Skills for Veterans must meet or exceed the prevailing wage for that occupation in the local labor market. Visit www.texasworkforce.org/svcs/funds/skills-veterans-initiative.html for more information about the new program.
