Eligible spouses of active-duty service members now have an opportunity to enroll in their choice of 83 programs offered by Texas A&M University-Texarkana Extended Education and Community Development as part of the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) workforce development program.
The Department of Defense MyCAA program provides up to $4,000 of financial assistance to eligible military spouses of active-duty service members in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, and O1-O2 who are pursuing a license, certification or degree in a portable career field and occupation.
“We are so excited and proud to be a participant in the MyCAA program,” said Shelley Caraway, executive director of Extended Education and Community Development at A&M-Texarkana. “The focus of MyCAA is to prepare military spouses for employment at their next duty station. The courses are completely online, so they are very flexible and self-paced.”
A&M-Texarkana has an extensive catalog of programs offered through MyCAA, including 19 healthcare-related programs, business and information technology programs, and Six Sigma industry certifications. Most of the programs can be completed in six months although some of the programs allow up to 18 months for completion.
