Army Credentialing Assistance (CA) Program

The Army Credentialing Assistance Program allows Soldiers to earn professional and technical credentials. This program creates new opportunities for Soldiers to enhance their skills and professionalism while serving, and increasing their employability upon transitioning from the Army.

This is a voluntary, off-duty training and education program similar to the Army's existing Tuition Assistance program and provides financial assistance for Soldiers to pursue and earn credentials. Credentialing Assistance authorizes payment of classroom, hands-on, and blended/online training, manuals, study guides, books, testing fees, and related fees for continuing education and re-certification. Credentialing Assistance keeps the Army competitive with civilian counterparts and develops Soldier skills.
