Since I left the Army in 2010, I am not eligible for the Forever GI Bill. I went to law school using the Post 9 / 11 benefits, and now I work in-house. I &# 039 have just under 11 months of benefits left to use up, and my benefit eligibility expires in November 2024.
Technology certifications can help me advance my career in our IT and privacy sectors, but they are in no way essential to my job. I &# 039, I’m thinking about trying O2O for more training after using VET TEC to earn a CompTIA Sec + through Intellectual Point.
I &# 039 would like some advice on this: if that works, it doesn’t reduce the GI bill. How should I make the most of the day I have left?
Would it be better to stick to the above plan and use the extra time on something more enjoyable and interesting or to avoid IP( I &# 039, have seen some of the criticism ) and work on tech training at a nearby university or CC?
I &# 039, I’m not sure how cool my work would be with a long leave of absence and I need to be paid; lengthy wilderness courses might not be an option, but I like the concept. I &# 039, I’m interested in simply enrolling in random courses, but do I need to work full-time to fully utilize benefits? I might be able to learn how to rivet, but I’m not sure if I need to complete a training course.
