How Does the Military Spouse Training Program Work?
To be eligible, you must be the civilian spouse of an active-duty service member in the paygrades of E-1 to E-5, W-1, W-2, O-1 and O-2. Also, you must complete your training while your spouse is on active-duty Title 10 orders.
You can establish a MyCAA account by visiting the MyCAA website. Once your profile information is provided, MyCAA will verify eligibility through a real-time DEERS eligibility check.
Prior to requesting MyCAA financial assistance, military spouses are required to develop an education and training (E&T) plan and upload it to their MyCAA account for approval by a MyCAA career and education consultant. Once approved, you can request financial assistance when you’re within 30 days of your course start date.
