Being a military spouse means building a portable life. It’s not always easy to find a career that you can take with you wherever you go, especially when it comes to training. MyCAA makes it easier.
When you choose a MyCAA approved program, you can get up to $4,000 in funding to train for an in-demand, portable career. Many of these careers are in the healthcare field, which is always looking for qualified people.
As the American population ages, the demand for qualified healthcare workers is increasing. Hospitals, doctors’ offices and other care organizations need personnel at all levels, especially in patient-facing roles like medical assisting, medical billing and patient care technician work.
These positions make up as much as 50% of the healthcare workforce. Given the need for quality patient care, leaving these roles unfilled simply isn’t an option. It puts a lot of organizations in a difficult position because, in many regions, there just aren’t enough trained professionals to go around.
The benefit of that is the need for staff means more career options for job seekers across the country. There’s job availability in almost all regions and settings, from small rural doctors’ offices to large city hospitals. The key to landing one of the many available positions is training.

Tired of moving from job to job? Military spouses do that a lot, unfortunately. Luckily, there’s a program that helps spouses find their footing a bit faster. The Military Spouse Career Advancement Account Scholarship (MyCAA) was created to help spouses pay for professional credentials that make job hunting more efficient with each PCS move.
For military spouses, the MyCAA program can be a game-changer. And at MedCerts, we offer MyCAA-approved programs that are accessible no matter where your spouse’s military service takes you. While all of our certification programs are designed to help our students find gainful employment, for MyCAA candidates the goal is to help you find a job that is also portable since many military families are often on the move.
Military life comes with a lot of exciting transitions. However, starting a new job every two to four years isn't all that thrilling. That's one of the reasons MyCAA was created — to give military spouses a sense of stability in at least one aspect of their lives.
