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.

What Veterans are Saying about STRAC

Great school! Excellent hands on training, and quality and professional help with electronics. Mr. Frank is a great instructor who truly cares for each and every veteran who passes through his class. STRAC also does a great job helping with job placement, and will help veterans until they find a job, and will provide assistance for veterans should they need help with job placement in the future. Highly recommended!

Technology can’t repair itself yet, so until then, our soldiers can continue to learn and work with hands-on training and have the skills and certification to continue providing for their families after the military.
