Flex Education 101: A MilSpouse Career Advancement Guide - MedCerts

Is Short-Term Online Career Training Right for You?

ATTN Military Spouses: For a limited time, the Department of Defense has expanded eligibility for My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) to the first 1,250 approved applicants in the ranks of E-6 and O-3. MedCerts is an approved school for the MyCAA scholarship.

When you discover a career path that's right for you, it's a special kind of magical. And when you discover it's within your reach — it's hard to beat that excitement.

Developing your career as a military spouse isn't always easy, considering the extra demands on your time and attention. But it's possible, especially when you find the right training program. With flex education, you can learn and even earn a professional certification from anywhere.

What Is Flex Education?

Flex education is a learning model where most of the teaching happens online. Students may participate in some offline activities, but online learning is the foundation.

This frees students from the confines of a traditional campus. Instead of having to be in a particular place at a particular time, students can log on wherever they are. The content they need is at their fingertips.

The flex learning model lets students set their own pace. In a flex education program, you don't have to take things in at the same speed as everyone else.

You can move quickly through familiar material and take more time with tougher content. You can go back and review a topic anytime without having to schedule a session with a professor.

You set the pace and study on your own, but you're not alone. Flex education offers one-on-one support with student advisors and interaction with classmates. You still get to ask questions and discuss ideas, all without the inconveniences of traditional education.

Flex Education for Military Spouses

When you're a military spouse, you know the value of flexibility. You know how important it is to know you can log on from anywhere, even if your family moves.

With flex education, you can sign up for a program or course without wondering if you'll have to pick up and leave mid-way through. You know you can finish the course wherever you are and in whatever time zone.

Flex education also gives you the time to focus on your family. If your spouse needs extra support, you can step back from your education for a little while and be there.

Alternatively, if your spouse is away from home and you have some extra time on your hands, you can double down and get extra work done.

You get all of this flexibility without having to sacrifice education quality.
