The National Veterans' Training Institute (NVTI) was established in 1986 to further develop and enhance the professional skills of veterans' employment and training service providers throughout the United States. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor / Veterans' Employment and Training Service, and administered by the University of Colorado Denver with training conducted in Denver, Colorado and at selected regional sites in the U.S. and abroad.
The Institute is the only one of its kind in the United States. To date 50,000 + veterans' employment and training professionals have attended NVTI training. Since 1986, NVTI has trained a variety of veterans' employment and training professionals including employment service personnel, veterans service organization leaders, Federal and State staff, Department of Defense personnel, Native American groups which work with veterans, county veterans' service representatives and others. NVTI offers many resources, one of which is the DVOP/LVER (Disabled Veterans' Outreach Program / Local Veterans' Employment Representative) Locator that helps Veterans locate veterans' service professionals in a particular geographic area.
