Learn from the #1 Provider of Higher Education to the U.S. Military*

As a CA provider, American Military University can help you prepare for in-demand industry credentials.

AMU and the Army Credentialing Assistance Program

The Army Credentialing Assistance (CA) Program can pay for courses and exams that lead to industry-recognized civilian credentials in an occupational area of your choice. You may use this program to enhance your skills, either in your current MOS, or in an occupation you would like to pursue when you leave military service.

American Military University offers on-demand courses that support your pursuit of in-demand industry credentials available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Browse our catalog for instructor-facilitated courses.

The Army’s CA program will pay for all necessary books, supplies, associated materials, and various fees required for an approved training course and/or exam. Servicemembers may use both Federal Tuition Assistance (TA) and CA up to a combined $4,000 fiscal year limit; however, TA is for credit-bearing college courses and CA is for credentialing and licensure training, preparation, and examination.
