I wanted to do a special post about the Military Spouse Career Advancement - its also known as MyCAA! I knew about this awhile back but they stopped the funding on it for a short period of time -- funding is back now!!! It provides up to $4000.00 of Financial Assistance for military spouses who are pursuing a PORTABLE career field. Basically, they want you to do something that you can do wherever you move!
There are lots of places you can use this money...but why go out when you can stay in! Think Medical billing and coding, medical transcription, financial management, accounting and more! One of the places you could do this is at Martinsburg Institute you can check them out and find more information by clicking on the links.
I probably won't take advantage of this great opportunity (since I already have degrees I don't use and since I have barely a moment to tie my shoes) but I can attest that taking classes online is a very easy way to complete a degree! If I had a spare moment, or two, I'd jump at the chance to try out one of these programs (since it wouldn't cost me anything!). I just love that the military provides us with so many opportunities!
I am so glad things like this are available to us since we all lead such very busy lives! I know a few friends here locally that could definitely benefit from something like this so I plan on sharing it! I urge you to pass the word around that MyCAA is back! This is just a little boost that will help you to complete your career, become a work at home mom and bring a little extra money into the home during your free time!
If you choose to use this program I totally recommend checking out Martinsburg Institute and looking into their courses. It's simple, flexible and portable! And as a military spouse & mom you need it to be all three!
