Developed with a grant from the VA Center of Innovation, America Makes and Google.org, the company's new “3D VetSquad” initiative trains unemployed and underemployed veterans for careers in tech. U.S. veterans will complete a six-week boot camp and receive a Training Badge upon completing the program. After receiving the badge, veterans “will travel to schools nationwide to assist educators in setup, maintenance and everyday classroom use of the Dremel Idea Builder 3D printers,” according to a prepared statement from Dremel.
