Military Spouses – MyCAA and CareerStep Have Your Education Covered

I wish MyCAA had been around when I was a young military wife. MyCAA Financial Assistance (FA) pays tuition for education and training courses, and licensing/ credentialing fees (up to $4,000 over two years). This includes state certifications for teachers, medical professionals and other occupations requiring recognized certifications; licensing exams and related prep courses; Continuing Education Unit (CEU) classes including those offered through professional associations; and degree programs leading to employment in Portable Career FMyCAA and CareerStepields. MyCAA also pays for High School Completion courses, GED tests and
English as a Second Language (ESL) classes.

CareerStep is MyCAA approved.  They offer quite a few courses whose tuition is completely covered by your MyCAA funds!!

Here are some of the possibilities:

  • Medical Transcription Editor
  • Medical Coding and Billing
  • Pharmacy Technician
  • Medical Administrative Assistant
  • Computer Technician

Unsure of how the whole process works?  CareerStep offers a free ebook called Top 5 MyCAA Myths for military spouses who are wondering if MyCAA funding can cover their education. It takes a look into the primary reasons military spouses don’t take advantage of the benefit and what makes a military spouse eligible.

Here areMyCAA and CareerStep a list of the Top 5 MyCAA Myths:

MyCAA will use my husband’s (or my wife’s) GI BIll.

I’m sure I don’t qualify – I’m never selected for programs like this.

Only certain programs and schools are approved, so mine probably isn’t on the list.

Getting MyCAA funding is really complicated and takes forever.

If I don’t finish, or I fail a course, I’ll have to pay it all back.

So, what are you waiting for?  There’s no time like the present to further your education and give yourself a chance for a better future.  Go to CareerStep for more information.
