2. GUIDANCE ON ARMY CREDENTIALING ASSISTANCE (CA) PROGRAM. From HRC ACES:  On 6 June 2018, The Secretary of the Army signed Army Directive 2018-08, establishing the Army’s Credentialing Assistance (CA) Program with an effective date of 6 September 2018.  This program allows eligible Soldiers to receive funding for courses or exams that lead to an industry-recognized academic or vocational credential. Although the CA Program starts on 6 September 2018, only Soldiers participating in the Limited User Test (Regular Army Soldiers stationed at Fort Hood, TXARNG Soldiers, and TXUSAR Soldiers) will be able to request CA starting on this date for courses or exams scheduled after 1 October 2018. Soldiers stationed outside of Texas are not currently eligible to receive CA. We anticipate Army-wide implementation of the CA program in late 2019 and will provide notification when all Soldiers can request CA.  Visit the following link for more information. https://www.milsuite.mil/book/docs/DOC-488093
