TRUMPF Training Earns Certification for Student Veterans

TRUMPF is pleased to announce that the TRUMPF Inc. training center in Farmington, CT, has been approved by the State Approving Agency (SAA) of the Connecticut Office of Higher Education to train eligible Veterans Affairs (VA) educational beneficiaries. The official certification was granted on October 28, 2015.

The SAA approval stems from a rigorous application process followed by a site survey of TRUMPF’s training facilities. With this certification, TRUMPF’s training center becomes the first and only center in the machine tool industry that is both IACET certified and certified by the SAA to train eligible veterans. Since tuition is now covered by the VA education assistance program, veterans now have the opportunity to enroll in TRUMPF training courses and earn CEUs at no cost to them.

“We are overjoyed to have achieved SAA approval for TRUMPF training and for the opportunity to better support eligible veterans looking to further their skills in machine programming, operation, and maintenance,” asserts Christine Benz, training manager at TRUMPF Inc. “This certification further demonstrates TRUMPF’s commitment to providing high-quality training that adheres to the highest standards of adult education.”
