At NITE, we take pride in our country and the services that military veterans provide in our honor. Because of this, we feel that it is important for all veterans to receive the training necessary to reach their occupational goals.
Reach Occupational Goals

We keep our programs tuition fees affordable regardless of status
Our technology is designed to go beyond traditional learning environments
Our training programs are specifically developed to give our veterans the necessary skills and confidence to improve their long-term employment prospects and their earning potential in high demand sectors with emphasis on the “Green” industry. These programs are delivered in the classroom or online, with a self-paced or instructor-led schedule. Training sectors include renewable energy, energy efficiency, transportation, information technology, healthcare, business, project management, and contractor trades.
Whether you are veteran transitioning from military to civilian life, the spouse of a military veteran, or a retired veteran, our programs will help create your success story in today’s hottest industries!
Homebase Heroes is an upcoming military veteran initiative founded by the National Institute of Training & Education, to provide our nation’s veterans with grant-funded training programs that can lead to industry-recognized certifications for employment, career advancement, or assistance with the transition from military to civilian life. Homebase Heroes is due to launch in January 2014.
