The Department of Defense's Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts program (MyCAA) offers a grant of up to $4,000 for spouses to train in portable career fields. To qualify the person must be the spouse of an active duty servicemember in pay grades E1-E5, W1-W2, and O1-O2, or the spouse of an activated Guard or Reserve member within those ranks. Spouses of Guard and Reserve members must be able to start and complete their courses while their sponsor is on Title 10 orders. A MyCAA account covers tuition for associate degree programs and vocational training courses that lead to licensing and/or industry certifications.
