Educational Opportunities On Line

I was actually looking out for career options which are available for military spouses. I am mainly looking for online courses which could help to get a certificate. My husband is in the military and he said there could be some benefits for us. Please let me know if you know where I can find something. Thanks in advance.

It really depends on what you might want to do as a "career". There are many sites to help you but you have to be specific.

If you want to be a programmer you need to pick a language, do a Google or Bing search, download the required software and get started. Java is about the most practical. It is used for web pages and many modern technologies.

If you build your skill with typing you can be a secretary or stenographer. If you are already a good typist work on your Microsoft application skills: Office and Excel are the prominent.

If you have no idea what you want to do try a search for "prominent secondary occupations". I say secondary because a "primary" occupation would more than likely require some form of major study or trade background. Another good search might be "extra income opportunities".

Read the suggestions on the search page you use for other related topics. They are usually after the search results. These may help you refine what you may be interested in doing and then you can search for a website where you can learn how to do it.

Jennifer, there is available military funding for military spouses for exactly what you need! That is, online certification courses that can help you kick start a vocation of your choice and prepare for it with tuition assistance from the military through the MyCAA program. You get up to $4000 that you can use over a span of 3 years towards certifications, licensures or Associate's degrees. There are great vocational training schools online that offer MyCAA courses, and you can find out more by looking up CareerStep online MyCAA approved training programs. Good luck!
