Opportunities for Veterans

GI Bill License and Certification Program -

In today’s business and federal workforce, having a license or certification can open doors for you. A license is required for most professions, and for jobs that are subject to state or other government regulations. Certification is voluntary, but frequently sought after. That’s because getting a certification can help you get, keep, or advance in a job.

In jobs like mechanics, realtors, medical technicians, project managers, computer network engineers, and many more it’s clear that certifications play a key role.

You can receive reimbursement of up to $2,000 per test but not more than the actual cost of the test. You can receive benefits to retake a test if you fail. The number of tests you can take is unlimited, except that you can’t receive benefits to retake a test you passed.


There are many resources that will have veterans match military skills and branches to civilian career consideration. Besides the Veterans Transitioning Services,; Google Military Occupational tool helps transitioning service members and veterans prepare for whatever’s next by using Keywords, “jobs for veterans” on Google and enter your military occupational specialty code (MOS, AFSC, NEC or rating) to see relevant civilian jobs that require similar skills to those used in your military roles.
