Navy-Funded Exam Vouchers
The Navy's Credentials Program Office has a limited amount of certification/license exam voucher funds that may be used by enlisted personnel towards specifically-identified certifications and licenses. These vouchers will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis. In general, the Navy will pay for credentialing exam fees under the following circumstances:
- The credential has been approved for Navy funding;
- The Sailor meets eligibility requirements including that the credential is appropriate to their rating or collateral duty/out of rate assignment and is validated by their Commanding Officer; and
- The Sailor has a minimum six months remaining on his/her enlistment at the time the credential is awarded.
Throughout the site, identifies a credential that has been approved for Navy funding via a pre-paid voucher or pre-approved reimbursement. The voucher covers the cost of the examination, re-certification, or maintenance fee.
