    Will Navy Tuition Assistance pay for IT certifications?

    I'm currently using my MGIB for my undergrad/graduate degrees, and am wondering if the Navy's TA program will cover exam fees for IT certifications, such as CEH, Sec+, Net+.

    Thanks!

    Navy tuition assistance will not cover certifications, but not is all lost! In order to have certifications fully-funded, you need to petition a different pot of money. The Navy COOL program will pay for as many certifications as you'd like, provided you 1) meet the individual requirements for the cert in-question and 2) have at least a year remaining on active duty. You may search for certifications on the website in relation to your occupation in the Navy and other skills that you might possess i.e.: instructor, leadership; photography ; IT, etc. I know for a fact that the CompTia+ (sp?) is offered through Navy COOL and has proven to be a pwerful IT credential.

    I myself ended up with 3 certifications and would have pursued others had I been better informed. Do your research on each cert that you are interested in as while there are great credentials offered through this program, I hate to say it but some aren't worth the paper they are printed on. Also keep in mind Navy COOL will pay the money come time for you to recertify. I try to encourage my young sailors to capitalize on this opportunity, but you can only lead them to the water....

    Ah gotcha. As an IS, I'm only able to get the GSEC cert. The IT's and CTN's get all the nice certs. *sigh*
