Having a certification can open doors for you in today’s workplace; if you’re eligible, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) can reimburse you for taking a certification exam.  ISP certifications are recognized by the VA so that individuals may receive reimbursement for certification fees.

You can receive up to $2,000 per exam but not more than the VA approved cost of the exam.  You may receive benefits to retake an exam you didn’t pass.  You may receive benefits to retake an exam you passed if the exam is required for recertification or to allow you to retain a license you already have. Learn more about GI Bill benefits for Certification.  See below under Eligibility.

To apply for exam reimbursement, send the VA a signed and dated request with the following information:

  • VA-Form 22-0803
  • A copy of your test results or a copy of your license or certification

Have you applied for VA benefits before?  If no, please complete the Application for Education Benefits and send it to VA with this request for reimbursement.
