Military Solutions from NH Computer Learning

 What is Directive 8570?

In August of 2004 the US Department of Defense (DoD) signed Directive 8570, which requires every part-time or full-time military member or defense contractor with privileged access to a DoD information system to carry an approved certification for their particular job classification.

This measure ensures that those performing information assurance (security) measures have the necessary skills and knowledge to protect important information.

New hires must obtain appropriate baseline certifications within six months of being assigned to information assurance functions.

 Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA)

The Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA) program is the Department of Defense's (DoD) employment assistance program for military spouses of active duty service members.

The DoD is committed to helping military spouses find employment in high-demand, high-growth Portable Career fields. NH Computer Learning can help. It is a proven fact that the more training and education job seekers have, the more likely they are to get better jobs at higher salaries. That's why MyCAA offers the following:

  • Training: Eligible military spouses are now able to receive up to $4,000 of MyCAA Financial Assistance (FA) that can help them pursue education, training, licenses, certificates, and degrees leading to employment in Portable Career fields. Please see the MyCAA Fact Sheet, which provides basic information about the MyCAA program and military spouse eligibility, as well as points of contact for who can help spouses, schools and participating organizations.
  • Job Preparation: The schedules and locations of Military Spouses are always changing. Training in Portable Career fields, fields that are in high-demand and not restricted to location or time, prepares you to enter the workforce when you choose.
  • Job Placement: NH Computer Learning is working closely with local partners who are involved with Job Placement and developing networks of military-friendly employers who are looking to hire military spouses into good paying positions.
