FAQ for GI Bill Reimbursement for Certification Fees

Please fill out the form on the link below
How much GI Bills benefit do I use for getting reimbursed for the Test Fees?
Under the new GI Bills policy, the Dept of VA will cover up to $2,000 in fees and the rate is prorated.
It is approximately $67 per day. So for example the $349 exam would cost about 5 days of eligibility from our GI Bill.
