									               Ecotech Institute Named to the ‘Best for Vets 2014’ List
                         Ecotech is Ranked 19th for its Military Veterans Services

Denver, CO, October 02, 2013 – The Military Times has named Ecotech Institute to its 2014 Best
for Vets List. The list honors top military friendly schools doing the most for veterans. Ecotech,
which is the only college entirely focused on renewable energy training, came in at 19th out of 38.
About 80 schools in total applied for the honor. The Military Times ranks the schools based on
what veterans have told them are important, such as university culture, student support,
academic policies, academic quality and financial aid.

“At Ecotech Institute we are thankful for the sacrifices our military veterans have already made
and we want to make their transition into their next career as smooth and enjoyable as possible,”
said Chris Gorrie, Academic Dean at Ecotech Institute. “We strive to provide them the support
they need to excel and it’s an honor to be recognized for our work with military veterans.”

Military veterans make up about 22 percent of Ecotech Institute’s student population. Ecotech
received high marks from Military Times for many things, including:

*   Accepting ACE credits
*   Being at or below post-9/11 limits
*   Academic support
*   ACICS accreditation
*   Low student-faculty ratio (14:1).
