*Only the residential version of NLC’s Lineworker Programs are approved for VA Education Benefits
It is important to note that VA education benefits are ONLY approved for the residential (in-person) modality of all programs offered at NLC. This means, if you plan to use your VA education benefit to fund any part of your NLC education, then you may only register, enroll, and attend the residential (in-person) programs.
If you decide to NOT utilize VA education benefits and choose to pursue the HYBRID version of the programs offered by NLC, you do so with the acknowledgment that VA will not fund any part of the HYBRID program.
