ADDITIONAL TRAINING UNDER THE VOCATIONAL REHABILITATION ACT
Some disabled veterans who need more than four years of training to reach their occupational objectives may be able to take additional training under the Vocational Rehabilitation Act. The Veterans Administration states that veterans so severely disabled that no course of training will restore them to employability in four years, and those who lose time in their courses because of their health or other personal circumstances beyond their control, are expected to be helped by this ruling. Provision also has been made for disabled veterans who started preprofessional courses before the war and who have since proved their suitability for their chosen profession but who still must have more than four years to prepare for it.The ruling does not apply to any veterans in training under the G. I. bill whose eligibility is based on their length of service
