The West Virginia Office of Veterans Education and Training (OVET) works to ensure that every veteran, National Guard member and Reservist in West Virginia is aware of and has full and fair access to high quality, ethically-administered education and training programs that can help them reach their full potential.

The office serves as the State Approving Agency for programs providing education and training to Veterans and their eligible dependents.

Our Mission

We inspect, review, approve, and monitor programs of educational institutions, training establishments and licensing and certification testing agencies. We provide in-depth technical assistance and training, outreach efforts, and liaison with related organizations, agencies, and individuals within West Virginia. We work in accordance with the provisions of Titles 10 and 38, United States Code, and applicable West Virginia laws and regulations.

We work with veterans, active duty service members, National Guard members, Reservists, and dependents of disabled veterans or of those who died on active duty to help them utilize their military education benefits. Additionally, we assist school certifying officials, employer certifying officials, military education officers, military retention personnel and West Virginia Division of Veterans Affairs field representatives in providing education and training opportunities to military service members and their eligible dependents.
