A new Army Credentialing Assistance Program began on October 1, 2018 in Texas before a projected rollout to the entire service in fiscal year 2020. The program, which has similar rates and eligibility as tuition assistance, will provide Soldiers up to $4,000 each year to pay for credentials that will prepare them for life after the military.

WASHINGTON -- A new Army Credentialing Assistance Program is set to begin a one-year limited user test in Texas this fall before a projected rollout to the entire service in fiscal year 2020. 

The program, which has similar rates and eligibility as tuition assistance, will provide Soldiers up to $4,000 each year to pay for credentials that will prepare them for life after the military. 

When fully implemented, the program will allow Soldiers to choose from more than 1,600 credentials currently offered on the Army's Credentialing Opportunities Online website.  The program currently offers training in 28 key credentials.  To find out which programs, PCCenter offers, speak to PCCenter's admissions representative by calling 972-239-5700 or emailing us at dcurtis@pccenter.edu .

Many of those credentials offer promotion points and are recognized by civilian industry, including jobs in healthcare, plumbing, information technology and aviation repair.

In the initial test, every Soldier stationed at Fort Hood, in addition to Army National Guard and Selected Reserve Soldiers who serve in Texas, will be able to choose from nearly 30 different credentials.
