With the New GI Bill Change, How Many Certifications Can I Get?


Q: How many certificates will the new changes in the Post 9/11 GI Bill allow a veteran to complete? I’m interested in obtaining several computer programming certificates and not clear if it pays for just one certificate or multiple certificates over the course of a couple of years? Thanks!

A: Right now, the Post 9/11 GI Bill only reimburses for one license/certificate up to $2,000 and it normally does not pay for the training leading up to the certificate. With the passage of the GI Bill 2.0, that will change starting this fall.

From the information I have so far, the Post 9/11 GI Bill will still reimburse up to $2,000 per certificate or license, but it would be limited by only how much you have left for benefits. And the other change is it should pay for the training it takes beforehand to pass the test.

If the Post 9/11 GI Bill mirrors what the Montgomery GI Bill covers in this regard, it will also pay for retesting in the case of failing a test. As time marches on, more (and better) information will come out and I’ll pass that along via this blog.
