As of early 2020, the Army Credentialing Assistance Program has expanded to all 50 states. The assistance program provides eligible active-duty Army, National Guard, and Reserves service members with funding to further their education. Expanding the Army Credentialing Assistance Program to all 50 states will have massive advantages for our troops.
Returning to civilian life after serving in the Army, National Guard, or Reserves can be tough. When searching for a job, it’s hard to get your foot in the door. Despite the hard work you’ve put in over the years, your resume may not appear strong for jobs outside of the army.
The Army Credentialing Assistance Program honors the time you spent serving our country by helping fund college courses and training programs to bolster your resume.
With the Army Credentialing Assistance Program, more troops can get an education or receive job training. This year’s program expansion will open doors for more service members than ever before to get funding opportunities they didn’t have before.
The expansion of the Army Credentialing Assistance Program will force more schools to consider the needs of service members. In the coming years, service members will see more programs targeted toward their interests and backgrounds.
The program expansion will allow you to continue receiving financial assistance regardless of where life takes you. You won’t have to worry about losing funding if you are called back to active duty in a different state, or if your family decides to move. With service in all 50 states, the Army Credentialing Assistance Program will be there for you.
Service members can use their Army Credentialing Assistance Program funds to enroll in a variety of credentialing programs. To search for programs, individuals may consult Army COOL (Army Credentialing Opportunities On-Line), a resource that lists credentialing opportunities, and identifies programs that are eligible for financial assistance.
