UTC’s Veteran Student Services is partnering with the Center for Professional Education (CPE) to offer financial assistance to active-duty military spouses looking for a job.
Through the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) scholarship program, spouses can receive up to $4,000 over two years to pursue degree programs, licenses or credentials that lead to employment in portable career fields. Such careers include occupations in the management, technology, organizational and healthcare fields.
Eligible participants include those spouses of active duty service members or activated Guard and Reserve members.
Assistant Director of Veteran Student Services Squoia Holmes says MyCAA offers “a resource for military spouses to remain competitive in the workforce.”
Center for Professional Education Program Coordinator William Watson says the goal is to meet the needs of military families through “educational resources and financial support.”
Programs offered by CPE include web development, cybersecurity, marketing, accounting and clinical medical assisting, among others. Courses in the program are offered online and available 24/7 so spouses can work at their own pace and all materials are included with technical support. Courses include audio, text, graphics, simulation, quizzes and exam preparation.
After completion of the program, CPE offers career services and counseling to graduates.
