Free - Congress and the Army have joined to offer Active Duty Army members low cost to free vocational training. The Army pays the eligible educational provider up to $4500, and for the majority of Gatlin Education Services programs, that means no out-of-pocket cost to the soldier.

Additionally, we have restructured some of our high-tech programs, so that you will not incur an expense for the training. In fact, any military student interested in our Web Design, Multimedia Design, or our Fine Arts Certificate, please contact me for our reduced military pricing.

Program Focus:Occupational/career training only
Program Fee
(fiscal year cap):
$4500* (*soldiers are responsible for
