Military Spouses and Family Members

Military spouses and family members may be eligible for financial assistance through Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAAs). Cosponsored by the Department of Defense and the Department of Labor to help active duty spouses earn portable careers, a MyCAA can help to pay for education expenses, including tuition, books, fees, tools and equipment, and licensing fees. To find out more, visit

It may also be possible for veterans to transfer unused benefits to spouses and children under the Post-9/11 GI Bill. The Department of Defense (DoD) determines whether or not you can transfer benefits to your family but once the DoD approves benefits for transfer, the new beneficiaries apply for them at VA. Click here to find out more about transferring your unused benefits to a spouse.

A Flexible and Portable Career Choice

There are very few careers that support flexible schedules and portability as well as those in the beauty and wellness industry. State reciprocity for licenses can vary state-to-state, but often our graduates can take their career with them as they move throughout the country. This is a great benefit, especially if your home may be a moving target.

Come learn and get inspired!

At Avenue Five Institute, we know career training is about more than a certificate to hang on the wall – it’s about getting a career you love. We’re dedicated to supporting you throughout your career. Our staff is happy to offer their support to help you pursue employment opportunities.
