Men and women who works as military officers are redeployed from one station to another every now and then. Hardly do they stay in one station for many months. The [people who get affected by this redeployment of military offices are the spouses, especially the ones who are working as career men and women. A military spouse who want to be with the family finds it difficult to maintain a job and a good career. It is also hard for a military spouse to take any career education course as she or he does not know when the next redeployment will happen.
However, thanks to advanced technology, military spouses can be able to take up online career training programs. With online career course, the learner can take up the course while based in part of the region. There are also universities that allows the student to take up a vocational course from any part of the world. This has come as a reliever to many military spouses who have all along found it difficult to advance their careers as they do not know when the next redeployment will happen.
One program referred to as MyCAA; Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts is offered as financial aid for military spouses who want to take up careers in different professional fields. This program has helped several military spouses excel in their various careers as well as get employment in different sectors. MyCAA also benefits the spouses by catering for the fees of any certification of teachers, professionals in medical field or any other professional who requires certification of any kind. Military spouses now have the burden offloaded from their shoulder.
The [procedure for making an application involves opening an account on the MyCAA website. Depending with information provide on the account, the board decides if the candidate is eligible or not. Any successful applicant then makes an application, 30 days prior to the start of the courses.
MyCAA scholarship programs covers the following. Normally the scholarship caters for the tuition fee, which basically includes tuition and examination fee. The program also covers the fee for any certification or license obtained from an accredited university, college or a technical school in the state.
However, while the spouse is taking up MyCAA training program, it is important to note that the program has some areas that it does not cover. Some of the issues not covered includes the fee for courses and examinations that is not included in the military plan for Education and Training. A course that a spouse had already enrolled or have already taken will also not be catered for under the scholarship program.
MyCAA does not also make any prior payment for a future course that the military spouse intends to take in future, unless it is a prior payment of the same course that the spouse is taking now. Another necessity omitted in the MyCAA online training program is the cost of uniforms or books, amongst many more.
