Curious about which online certificates MyCAA will cover for you?
As a military spouse, you have plenty of options when it comes to using your My Career Advancement Account (MyCAA) benefit. As long as your educational program ends with you receiving a license, certification or Associate’s degree in a portable career field, it’s generally covered.
Luckily, MedCerts programs fit that requirement, which means you typically pay nothing to go back to school and find a new career. Best of all, you can take classes from the comfort of your own home.
Here we list five MedCerts online certificates MyCAA covers:
Boost your earning power with a cardio-phlebotomy technician online certificate. Combine the marketable skills of an EKG technician and a phlebotomy technician in this 21-week program. In this cross-training program, you’ll learn procedures from infection control to how to set up a patient with an EKG test. If changing your daily schedule up with various tasks sounds like a challenge you’re up for, consider enrolling to learn how to be a cardio-phlebotomy technician.
What’s included with the program? You'll get scrubs, a stethoscope, and your national certification exam fees covered, along with your tuition and books.
If going to the dentist doesn’t bother you one bit, then you’ll likely feel comfortable assisting an oral health team daily. This 18-week program preps you to take the Radiation Health and Safety (RHS) exam along with the Infection Control (ICE) exam.

With this program, you will fall in love with new animals everyday. This online veterinary assistant program meets the requirements for the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA). After 26 weeks of training, you’ll have knowledge of medical terminology, wellness, pharmacy, lab and exam room procedures. You’ll also fully understand what it means to be deeply involved with animal patient care with a hands-on externship to give you real-life experience.
What’s included with the program? Expert-led video training, the national AVA exam fee, and tuition. You’ll also receive one-on-one mentoring as well.
If you have a heart for healthcare, then there’s nothing more rewarding than EKG technician work. As an EKG technician, you’ll conduct the critical testing doctors need to identify and treat cardiovascular issues in patients. The 15-week program covers everything from customer service to human anatomy to the hands-on portion that includes an EKG externship at a local medical clinic.

Love working with people? A medical front office administration specialist position may be for you. Patients need a friendly face to say hello at check-in and help them fill out paperwork for healthcare appointments. During this 16-week program, you’ll discover how to be the face of a medical office administrative team that helps get patients into their appointments efficiently.
What’s included with the program? Your tuition, online textbooks and course books are covered, along with your national certification exam fees that will make you a CMAA.
Whenever you’re ready to apply, check out the eligibility requirements for MyCAA first. It’s a program you can activate just once, so you want to make sure you use it on a training program that most interests you.
