Earn a certification

A certification can help you demonstrate your skills and knowledge to an employer.

A certification is an award you can earn—usually by passing a test—to show your skill or knowledge in a particular career field. Find out if there are certifications in your field with CareerOneStop's Certification Finder.

The VA may provide funding for a certification exam. Funding is for the exam fee but not for study material.
