U.S. Military COOL/CA Program

DoD Credentialing Opportunities Online (COOL)

The DoD Credentialing Opportunities Online (COOL) program provides funding for military service members to earn a professional certification.

Building Resilient Teams™ that can work together in a challenging environment is a core competency for military leaders. The Resilience-Building Leader Program series of leadership certifications are approved for members of the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.

Military service members can earn their leadership certification no matter where they are stationed globally because our exam prep training courses and certification exams are conducted by video conference. Our Authorized Training Partners also offer on-site exam prep training at military installations.

Eligibility and funding criteria are determined by each military service. Visit their websites below to learn more.
