Technical Career Field Program

Some may think the responsibility of providing superior health care services rests squarely on the shoulders of those who practice medicine. At the VA, we believe every position in the health care environment plays a critical role in delivering “The Best Care” possible. That’s why we created the Technical Career Field (TCF) Program, one of the largest training programs at VA.

TCF is a national Institute for Learning, Education and Development (ILEAD) workforce development program within VHA designed to replenish technical staff in critically identified positions. Allocations for the TCF programs are determined annually based on VHAs succession needs and budget. VHA pays salary/benefits and a training/travel allotment both years of the two year training program.
