Get No-Cost Home Inspection Training with Army Credentialing Assistance

Home inspection training from Inspection Certification Associates is available to Army service members at no cost with approval through the Army COOL (Army Credentialing Opportunities On-Line) Program, which provides up to $4,000 in credentialing assistance for approved training programs.

The Department of Defense began the Army Credentialing Assistance Program in 2019 in an effort to help service members grow their skills. By offering financial assistance, the Army COOL Program allows soldiers to complete credentialing programs, such as home inspection training, to enhance their service career and to help them transition into civilian life.

Who is Eligible for Army Credentialing Assistance?

Credentialing Assistance (CA) provides financial assistance for classroom and online training, manuals, study guides, books, testing fees, and other fees related to continuing education so soldiers can earn education credits to either enhance their current skills, or gain new skills in an occupation they want to pursue after military service.

The Army Credentialing Assistance Program is available exclusively to Army service members including:

  • Active-duty Army soldiers
  • Army National Guard soldiers
  • United States Army Reserve soldiers

Army Credentialing Assistance is a self-development program and credentials do not need to be aligned to the soldier’s MOS. It’s available for all ranks within the Army, including:

  • Warrant Officers
  • Commissioned Officers
  • Enlisted Soldiers

Benefits of Home Inspection Credentialing for Army Soldiers

A home inspection career is a great fit for Army soldiers due to its flexibility in hours and unlimited earning potential.
