Army Credentialing Assistance Program

What is Army Credentialing Assistance?

The Army Credentialing Assistance (CA) Program allows Soldiers to earn professional and technical credentials. The CA program is similar to the Army’s existing Tuition Assistance program and provides financial assistance for Soldiers to pursue and earn credentials leading to an industry- recognized academic or vocational credential. These credentials do not have to be linked to the Soldier's MOS!

This is a voluntary, off-duty training and education program that directly contributes to improving Total Army readiness, supporting Soldiers’ professional development, retaining quality Soldiers, and preparing Soldiers for meaningful employment upon transition from military service.

What is Paid for?

Credentialing Assistance will pay for all necessary books, supplies, and associated materials required for an approved training course and/or exam that shall not exceed $4,000.00.

Who is Eligible for Army Credentialing Assistance?

As of January 2020, the Army Credentialing Assistance Program is available at bases nationwide.

  • Soldiers from Regular Army, Army National Guard, United States Army Reserve-Officers, Warrant Officers, Noncommissioned Officers, Enlisted are eligible to participate in the CA program
