The following is a list of opportunities that you may be interested in talking advantage of: What is On-the-Job Training? On-the-Job Training (OJT) is training you receive while actually per- forming a job and earning wages, as well as receiving your G.I. Bill ben- efits. OJT programs normally range from six months to two years in length. Some examples of OJT are: Welder, Painter, Cook, Pressman, and Auto Mechanic. Contact Rhonda Schauer, Director, State Approving Agency, for more information. What is Apprenticeship Training? Apprenticeship Training is on-the-job training coupled with theoretical related instruction. You receive your G.I. Bill benefits while working full time and earning wages. Apprenticeship programs are normally from two to five years in length. Some examples of currently approved apprenticeship programs are: Carpenter, Electrician, Brick Layer, Asbestos Worker, Plumber, Iron Worker, Corrections Officer, Machinist, and Maintenance Mechanic. How to Begin 1. If you do not have a job, or if you are not working in the occu- pation you want, contact your local Job Service. The Veteran's Employ- ment Representative should be able to find an employer who can offer the kind of training you need to reach your occupational goal. 2. Next, either you or your employer should contact the North Dako- ta State Approving Agency at 701-328-5445, so that the necessary steps can be taken to approve the training program or visit the GI Bill Answer Page for more information. Reimbursement for Licensure and Exams Veterans can get reimbursed for the cost of a state licensing or certifi- cation exam. Veterans Affairs will pay for the cost of the tests, up to $2,000 for each test. For an application: tail.asp?FormNo=22-0803 If you have any questions about these or other benefits that are avail- able please give my office a call at 701-352-5030 or stop by for a visit at 638 Cooper Avenue Suite 5 Grafton ND 58237.

Renting a furnished apartment or I've heard that there are alternative lodging options like short-term apartment rentals or even house sit- ting that offer a much cheaper way to travel. How can we find these? Retired Travelers Dear Travelers, If you're willing to do a little re- search and preplanning, there are a number of ways you can lower (or eliminate) your travel-lodging costs and live more like a local when you travel. Here are some options to con- sider and some resources that can help you locate them. Apartment/House Rentals: There are literally hundreds of thousands of privately owned properties in the house is usually significantly cheap- er than hotel rooms of comparable quality, and they almost always of- fer more space, a homier feel and a kitchen, which can save you the ex- pense eating out every meal. Short-term rentals are offered through the individual property owners or property-management companies.

The Internet Originally a government weapon developed by the United States for use in the Cold War, the Intemet has become possibly the greatest invention of the twentieth century. I doubt that the scientists who originally had the idea or Swiss com- puter programmer, Tim Bemers-Lee, who shaped the World Wide Web that we know today, ever imagined what their invention has escalated to. The idea of the internet first appeared because the American government began worrying that the Russian government could knock out our phone lines with a missile I guess. After that, they put together a group of sci- entists who came up with the original idea of the Intemet, which just al- lowed for an exchange of files between computers. Years later, a Swiss computer programmer took the idea to another level and created the World Wide Web which has since allowed people from all comers of the globe and beyond to communicate and find out information like this. It boggles my mind when I really think of all the things we can do with the intemet. With just the click of a button or push of a key on a keyboard, I can talk with someone from Australia or watch a TV show made in the early seventies for the BBC instantly and do both at the same time. I do still realize that there are people who misuse it, but there are also tons more people who use it for something wonderful, and that is what I love about the Intemet.
