Frequently Asked Questions
How do I get started?
Spouses can visit the My Career Advancement Account Scholarship website at https://mycaa.militaryonesource.mil/mycaa and provide the required Spouse Profile information. All scholarship participants are required to use DS Logon to access their accounts. Military spouses enrolled in the Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System, or DEERS, are eligible for a DS Logon account. For information about creating a DS Logon premium account, access the ‘How do I access My Career Advancement Account Scholarship using a DS Logon?’ guide on the ‘Resources’ page: https://mycaa.militaryonesource.mil/mycaa/resources
What is the cost to me?
Between your MyCAA grant and the Employer scholarship, your cost will be $0. You must qualify for the MyCAA grant and interview and be offered a scholarship by a local employer (and agree to work for them).
Where will I do the training?
Our program is hybrid so part is online, and part is in-person. The in-person training will take place local to where you live at one of our state-approved training locations.
How can you learn massage therapy online?
You can’t! Our program is hybrid, meaning a mix of online and in-person training. The online portion includes subjects that you can learn online, such as anatomy, physiology, and business. All online classes meet weekly via video conferencing, so you interact with your instructors and classmates.
How does the Employer scholarship work?
There are local employers that will sponsor you to go to school. In exchange, you agree to work for them and they will make your tuition payments (what is left after your MyCAA grant). You can choose to leave anytime and by doing so you would lose your scholarship and owe the amount that your MyCAA grant didn’t cover.
Is your school accredited?
Mpower Career Training is approved by the Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education, the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia and approved by the US Department of Defense for MyCAA funding.
