Veterans Assembled electronics (VAe), a training school founded in 2009, has re-branded as STRAC Institute.
The launch of STRAC Institute now allows for this advanced training and mission to be extended to all non-veteran students as well.
STRAC Institute offers a 4-5-month, full-time skills training and certification program that teaches students electronics fundamentals. Upon program completion, students will receive 13 internationally recognized certifications and the skills needed to pursue a sustained career.
Mike Videira, president of STRAC Institute states, “We’ve seen and experienced firsthand the type of impact our program has had on our students and those who employ them. For the past decade, our curriculum has provided education and opportunities to a number of veterans who have gone on to have successful careers. We are excited to begin offering this program to everyone, veteran and non-veteran alike, for just a fraction of the cost of any traditional two or four-year college or tech school.”
All classrooms are outfitted with industry standard equipment. Students who are enrolled in the program work towards attaining Senior and Master (ETA) electronics technician certification. A career advocate supports each student through the entire process.
As they begin to prep for graduation, they will also complete leadership courses and career preparation education by completing a resume, participating in interview skills training, and receive support in applying for jobs to a network of over 100 companies who have previously hired our graduates.
“The transition to STRAC Institute will allow us to continue expanding our program offerings, as we look to develop curriculums for the most in demand trade industries,” says Videira. “We have developed a significant network of terrific companies that hire our graduates, and we have designed and evolved our curriculum to meet the ever-changing demands of those companies. These employers receive a qualified candidate who can make an immediate impact upon hiring, and we are thrilled to now offer this program to everyone interested.”
To apply for the program, a high school diploma or equivalent is required. STRAC Institute has training schools in Providence, RI, Fort Bragg, NC, and Orlando, Belleview and Melbourne, FL.
