The future of your enlisted education is now
In an effort to assist service members with obtaining industry certifications and licenses relative to their Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC), the Air Force now offers a pathway to credentialing. For service members working in specialized career fields, obtaining a professional certification assist with promotion and can open doors to immediate employment upon leaving the armed services.
Industry-recognized credentials are a great way for airmen to bolster their Air Force careers and prepare for their eventual transition to civilian employment as they retire or separate from the Air Force.

How do I submit a request for funding in order to pursue a credential?
