I would just like to tell you a little bit about the Martinsburg Institute. The Martinsburg Institute is a military friendly school that works one on one with military. They provide every student a laptop to ensure you have all the tools to complete your education. We are nationally accredited and accept TA, GI, and MyCAA (MyCAA is based on your spouses rank, e-1-e-5, WO-1-2). We also have a spouse benefit program where if your military spouse enrolls with us you can take any of our certificate degrees for free. A years' worth of TA and MyCAA completely covers a certification and our certifications only take about 6months. It is a great opportunity to have a concentration degree for today's work force. Today's work force is complicated. Jobs are limited and we are stuck between the companies that want specialties and the ones that want specific degrees and training, that's where we can help you. With certifications you specialize and train in one area with a complete concentration. We also offer two associate programs that are in high demand.  You do not need you GED to complete a certification with us which helps many in the military and helps just as many spouses. We provide you a way to get an accredited degree to join the work force better.
