What is Army COOL? 

Army COOL is part of the Army Credentialing Assistance (CA) program. Through COOL, they fund qualified Active Army, National Guard, and Reserve soldiers with up to $4,000 per fiscal year to spend on training courses that enhance your career. This means soldiers can earn industry-recognized professional and technical credentials at no cost to you!

Why should I spend money on training courses? 

We believe that learners become leaders—and great leaders are continuous learners. When you get additional certifications, you not only enhance your skills while you serve our country, but you also increase your employability when it's time to transition from the Army. 

Why should I choose AristaLearn? 

Our certification courses are all available on demand, online, which means you can earn your certification at any time, anywhere. Learning—on your schedule!
