FULFILLING A NEED

We partner with employers to ensure our program trains students in the skills companies require, on the same equipment used on the job. From training to job placement, our program is designed to ensure a good fit between employee and employer, leading to a sust...ained partnership.
OUR ROOTS ARE IN THE MILITARY
STRAC Institute’s training program was born out of one veteran’s desire to build a business that would allow him to continue to serve his country and help his fellow veterans. In 2009, John Shepard founded Veterans Assembled Electronics to fulfill Department of Defense contracts for modernizing electronics on legacy systems. Intent on hiring disabled veterans to perform the design and manufacturing required, Shepard created a specialized curriculum to train veterans in skills essential to the electronics industry.
In March 2020, after having graduated more than 365 disabled veterans, Veterans Assembled Electronics opened its doors to non-veteran students for the first time and became STRAC Institute.
