Useful Links for Veterans – GI Bill and Education Benefits

Helping Veterans in Colorado with useful links for non-college degree program information

If you are a Vet in Colorado, you may have GI Bill benefits available for education.  Digital Workshop Center (DWC) is approved to help you earn a certificate, complete a bootcamp, or up-skill based on the latest software trends.

Navigating through the maze of Veteran education information is not a simple task.  DWC staff has been working closely with Veteran Education specialists across Colorado for many months, and we are happy to provide some useful information for Veterans and their families as they look for career options after service.
