Army Benefits for Students: Your Military Education Team - MedCerts

Is Short-Term Online Career Training Right for You?

Just one perk of being an enlisted and trained military professional in the United States Army is that you get a support team of your own. Military education consultants can help you make the most of your Army benefits.

To access this benefit, start by learning about MedCerts, an online training school that is also an approved vendor of the Army Credentialing Assistance Program. Military students who qualify can work directly with supportive professionals with direct military experience. That means they’ll understand the challenges you face every day and help you prepare for advancement or transition to a civilian career.

Active-duty Army, Army Reserve, or National Guard personnel may be eligible for up to $4,000 in financial assistance through the Army Credentialing Assistance Program. MedCerts provides healthcare and IT certification programs, and the support needed to excel.

You’ll get to work with a veteran or a military spouse familiar with the military lifestyle, including the day-to-day demands that you must weigh as you work toward your credentialing goals. They know the factors that are important to Army students, and they’re here to help.

Receive Help with Credentialing Assistance

As part of these Army benefits, you can work with an advisor to ensure you take full advantage of what you’ve earned through your enlistment. Advisors can help you navigate Credentialing Assistance and browse the available credentials through the Army COOL site.

If you have questions about the process of filling out the Credentialing Request through ArmyIgnitED or the process for approval by ACCESS/ArmyU, your support team is ready to assist.

Create a Personalized Education Path

Courses that offer credentials in a specific career path are an excellent way to gain new skills and recognition, whether your goal is to advance within your military career or prepare yourself for civilian life afterward. It helps to know there are experts available who can answer questions you may have about either path — and make sure you are doing what you can to excel quickly.

Get the Right Advice to Get Ahead

The first step to take advantage of these valuable Army benefits is to talk with an Army Credentialing Assistance Expert with MedCerts today. It’s fast and easy to fill out the online appointment form to be connected quickly with someone who understands your unique situation.

The funding you may be eligible for can be used for training, study guides, materials, textbooks, fees, exams, and, if necessary, recertification of credentials. These Army Education Benefits even renew every fiscal year, providing you an opportunity to create a strategy that will benefit both you and the rest of the United States.
