Take Your Post-Service Career to New Heights

If you’re considering what Air Force veteran jobs might be available to you after you’ve completed your service, consider the advantages of a career in heavy equipment operation. Rather than spending tens of thousands of dollars and two to four years trying to get a college degree, you can get trained and credentialed at Performance Training Solutions (PTS) in heavy equipment or crane operations in only three weeks! This means you can be on your way to an in-demand, high-paying career sooner and with more career prospects, as equipment operators are needed nationwide.

As a veteran, you have a unique opportunity to get this training and the credentials required for a long, meaningful career in heavy equipment. This is because you have access to funding support through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and potentially other veteran-focused programs. We understand that it can be challenging to navigate this process, and that’s why we’ll work closely with you to help you obtain and complete the paperwork needed to get started.

Available Heavy Equipment Training Classes

To help you find the right Air Force veteran jobs in the heavy equipment field, we offer three 120-clock-hour courses covering a variety of equipment types. Training is on-site at our Columbus, Ohio facility. You’ll be required to stay locally to complete training. While food and lodging aren’t included in tuition, the short training duration and practical experience you’ll gain makes it worthwhile, especially when you’ll be able to earn a strong income sooner in your new career. We offer the following courses for Air Force veterans:
