    Exclamation SPOUSES ELIGIBLE TO RECEIVE UP TO $6000 FOR CERTIFICATIONS, LICENSURES, GED, etc.

    My husband received this e-mail via his command:
    Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Program

    With Congressional authorization in Public Law 110-417, the Department of
    Defense is implementing the Military Spouse Career Advancement Account
    Program, providing resources and assistance to spouses of active duty
    services members, Guard and Reserve with a spouse on orders for one year,
    supporting their pursuit of a successful, long-term, portable career.

    This centralized, virtual program, accessed through Military OneSource, will
    provide counseling and funding, up to $6,000, to assist with licensure,
    certification or education opportunities leading to portable employment
    opportunities.

    . A spouse will call the Military OneSource Center (1.800.342.9647)
    and speak with a Career and Education Consultant.
    . The Military One Source Career and Education Consultant will assist
    the spouse in selecting a career goal and entering a Career Plan into the
    online system "My Career Advancement Account."
    . Upon approval of the spouse's Career Plan for education, training,
    certification or licensure, Department of Defense will provide direct
    payment to the Payee (school, institution, or program) though the designated
    government Portal.
    . The spouse will report back to Military OneSource upon completion of
    the Plan and receipt of employment.

    This Department of Defense funded program will be available April 2009.
    Program specifics are available for your review at
    www.militaryonesource.com.

    The DoD point of contact is Mr. Mike Tevnan, 703.908.1237,

    i have a few friends that have done this and it's really a great program. helps out a lot! the only drawback is it's only in specialized fields that are pretty much found everywhere...so if you're going to school for something that isn't found practically everywhere, it's hard to qualify. or atleast, that's how the education office explained it to me when i inquired about it.
