Since 2009, more than 400 veterans, including those with service-related disabilities, have graduated from STRAC’s Certified Electronics Technician training program. An electronics career is an excellent choice for many veterans. It’s a well-paying, high-demand trade you can advance in as you gain more job experience and training.
Why Pursue a Career in Electronics?
As a veteran, the skills and discipline you learned in the military can help you succeed in this career. Our five-month training programs include the schedules, demands, and teamwork that will be familiar to you. Together with knowledge and skills training, we provide structure and support to bring out the best in our students and help them succeed. That’s why STRAC graduates go on to work for top companies like SpaceX, Land Rover, and Raytheon.

Why Choose STRAC?
STRAC Was Founded by Veterans for Veterans
STRAC Institute was born out of one veteran’s desire to continue to serve his country by helping his fellow veterans learn skills to prepare for careers that would give them confidence and enable them to support themselves and their families. The name “STRAC” is an acronym for “Skills Training And Certification” but it’s also military slang for a well-turned-out, dependable soldier. This is the type of employee a STRAC graduate becomes and the type of person employers want to hire.
Eligible Veterans may be able to fund their STRAC education through veteran benefit programs including:
