Veterans at IYRS

IYRS is proud of its history of educating veterans as they transition from the military to civilian careers. As a veteran, IYRS will help you to transform the skills you developed in the military—an ability to work with your hands, to work in teams, to problem solve, and to adapt—into a career as a highly trained craftsperson and technician.

The skills you learn at IYRS will help provide a foundation for a successful career across diverse industries including the marine trades, aerospace, wind energy, medical devices, and many others.
