Financial Aid For Heavy Equipment Training Through ATS

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

With the holiday season emptying a lot of wallets (and bank accounts), paying for a heavy equipment training program may seem beyond your means right now. It doesn’t have to be since there are financial aid options available designed to get you into a new career as soon as possible. All it takes is a commitment from you to want to succeed and the rest is certainly achievable.

Financial aid can come in many forms. There are a range of government programs available that you may be eligible for. These programs include:

  • Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
  • Department of Workforce Development
  • Trade Adjustment Act (TAA)
  • Displaced Workers
  • Displaced Farmers
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Tribal Education (BIA)
  • Veteran’s Benefits (VA)

If you are not eligible for financial aid through any of those programs then you may find that you are eligible for one of the many loan options that are available. Your own local financial institution may have student loan facilities available. It costs nothing to ask and the process through a local financial institution is often fast and painless.

Failing that, you can fill in our online financing application form. We have relationships with national financing institutions and we will endeavor to obtain finance on your behalf. USA Finance is another option for students looking for student loans. Generally speaking, you will need to make a down payment when you commence training with the balance paid off as agreed in your loan contract.

ATS Heavy Equipment Training Schools will assist you in every way possible to find suitable financing for your training. Our success is built on your success and your success is built on the quality of our training and the services we provide. If you are looking for financial aid for heavy equipment training, contact us to see what is available and what options you have.

Don’t Let Lack Of Money Hold Up Your Heavy Equipment Training

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

One of the biggest obstacles to taking up heavy equipment training is money – or the lack thereof. It doesn’t have to be a problem as there are a range of options available to help you fund your training. There are some individuals who may qualify for ‘free’ training – these are the ones that meet certain guidelines. If you’re out of work at present, it may pay to check on what criteria is required to have the government pay for some or all of your training. Some of these grants include:

  • Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
  • Department of Workforce Development
  • Trade Adjustment Act (TAA)
  • Displaced Workers
  • Displaced Farmers
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Tribal Education (BIA)
  • Veteran’s Benefits (VA)

If you are not covered by a government grant, there are other options. You can either seek out private finance through one of the many financial institutions that are around, or you can fill in one of our online application forms and we may be able to help you with finance.

Heavy equipment training does cost. Not a fortune, but it is not dirt cheap either. It is a significant investment on your part in both time and money. However, the rewards you gain on completion far outweigh any of the costs. In fact, you should be able to pay back any education loans fairly soon after starting work.

The cost of your training is an investment. However, fully trained heavy equipment operators are well paid – the investment soon pays off. If you are keen to get a start in the industry, but money has been holding you back, talk to us – if you don’t ask, you will never know what financial aid could be available.

Financing Heavy Equipment Training The Easy Way

Thursday, June 25th, 2009

Everyone knows we are going through tough times financially, yet a well paid career as a heavy equipment operator could be the financial turning point in your life. The problem is finding the money to pay for the training – it’s the old business adage that ‘you have to spend money to make money’ all over again. There are many options to financing your heavy equipment training – here are just a few.

Finance Your Training Through Government Grants

There are many different government grants available at present, although access to them will always depend on your current situation. Some of the grants available include:

  • Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
  • Department of Workforce Development
  • Trade Adjustment Act (TAA)
  • Displaced Workers
  • Displaced Farmers
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Tribal Education (BIA)
  • Veteran’s Benefits (VA)
Using Bank Financing To Fund Training

Most of us have bank accounts. And most banks have credit facilities to help pay the costs involved with career training. Your ability to access these funds will depend on things like your credit history and your ability to repay.

There are other financial institutions that offer credit using similar guidelines. You need to be aware that some lenders will charge much higher interest rates if your credit worthiness is impaired in anyway. Banks and financial institutions often also require guarantors if they feel the loan needs extra security.

Finance Your Heavy Equipment Training Through ATS

One of the easiest ways to find finance for your heavy equipment training is simply by asking us. We have been in business for over 40 years and during that time we have helped many students access some form of finance.

The easy way is to simply fill in our online finance application for heavy equipment training and sit back and let us do some of the work. If you have issues with transmitting personal information online then you can fill in the application and either snail mail it or send it by fax. Finance is never guaranteed, of course, as there are always going to be a range of credit checks.

Once approved, your finance may be used to fund your tuition, accommodation and living expenses. Yes, You do have to spend money to start a new career. However, you don’t have to break the bank to cover the costs. Financing heavy equipment training is as simple as filling in a form and waiting for us to get back to you – often within 48 hours.
