Can I use GI Bill® benefits to pay for my certification?

Veterans can use their VA GI Bill® benefits to fund their certification exams.

Veterans that pay “out-of-pocket” for one of our certification exams can apply for reimbursement by completing and submitting VA Form 22-0803, “Application for Reimbursement of Licensing or Certification Test Fees,” for up to $2,000. Additionally, VR&E students are eligible. However, it is up to the beneficiary's VR&E counselor to approve it for the veteran.


The following VA Chapters are authorized:

Montgomery GI Bill® – Active Duty (MGIB-AD/Chapter 30)

Veterans Educational Assistance Program (VEAP Chapter 32)

Post-9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33)

Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance Program (DEA/Chapter 35)

Montgomery GI Bill® – Selected Reserve (MGIB-SR/Chapter 1606)


Veterans can use the RBLP Payment Plan when scheduling their exam purchase. It requires a 10% down payment and 11 equal monthly payments at 0% interest. A credit card is required to use this plan. Select RBLP Payment Plan on the checkout page after scheduling your exam. You can not use the RBLP Payment Plan to buy an exam voucher.
