All about Online Career Training Programs for Military Spouses
Men and women who works as military officers are redeployed from one station to another every now and then. After a short period of months, they get deployed to other stations. Their spouses are the most affected in this case, and especially career men and women. The spouse finds it difficult to remain employed. Taking up a career course is also difficult for a military spouse as they do not know when the next redeployment will take place.
However, thanks to advanced technology, military spouses can be able to take up online career training programs. The spouses are able to enroll for distance learning programs while based at any part of the world. Various institutions do not limit the location of the learner, thus providing the courses to students globally. Online training programs have provided a chance for several military spouses who had no chance of furthering their careers as they fear their spouses might get deployed any time.
A program referred to as Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) is available to military spouses to financially assists them acquire degrees and certifications or licenses in any career field. Several military spouses have benefited from this scholarship program and have excelled in advancing their careers. MyCAA also benefits the spouses by catering for the fees of any certification of teachers, professionals in medical field or any other professional who requires certification of any kind. Military spouses now have the burden offloaded from their shoulder.
The [procedure for making an application involves opening an account on the MyCAA website. MyCAA then determines if the candidate is eligible to benefit from MyCAA online program or not. Any successful applicant then makes an application, 30 days prior to the start of the courses.
We look at what MyCAA program covers. Normally the scholarship caters for the tuition fee, which basically includes tuition and examination fee. The program also covers the fee for any certification or license obtained from an accredited university, college or a technical school in the state.
The scholarship programs does not cover for 100% of the requirements of taking up a career course, and it is therefore vital for the spouse to note the same. Some of the issues not covered includes the fee for courses and examinations that is not included in the military plan for Education and Training. A course that a spouse had already enrolled or have already taken will also not be catered for under the scholarship program.
MyCAA does not also make any prior payment for a future course that the military spouse intends to take in future, unless it is a prior payment of the same course that the spouse is taking now. It does not also cover for books or uniforms that the spouse might need during the study period.
