Using Post 9-11 GI Bill - Marine Diesels and Six Pack

As a retired veteran my daughter was able to knock out a lot of her college on my GI Bill, but I have a bunch of months of eligibility still left to use.

I am looking for classes in Cummins marine diesel maintenance and certification to say Six pack level to improve my overall knowledge and skills (not going to do commercial work).

I've searched around on line a bunch, and have found many on-line and brick in mortar places that will offer discounts to Vets, but no one that's accredited for GI Bill. If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

Make sure you check out local community colleges or tech schools. Many of them will have entry level classes to diesels and other mechanically oriented subjects. I would shy away from the commercial aspect right now, the job market is abysmal.
