    Using the GI Bill for school/certifications (former military)

    Hey all, first post here.

    I got out of the Army a few months ago and want to pursue a career in coding, It is something I have always wanted to do but have no experience and just starting to get the very basic knowledge of. I have a business degree, but not at all related to CS.

    I am starting to learn on my own, but does anyone have recommendations on what type of certifications or programs I could do that might be covered by the GI Bill (military tuition assistance)?

    I want to avoid having to take the GRE and getting a masters because of time restraints. But, using some sort of certification or actual program would be to my benefit because I would be able to get paid a housing allowance if enrolled in something, and also I think I do better at least starting in a classroom setting as opposed to strictly teaching myself.

    Even just recommendations not related to the GI Bill would be greatly appreciated, just trying to figure out a good plan and outline for how to start this as a career. Thanks!

    I am also using my GI Bill to pay for school. I am currently going through the university of Phoenix to get my associates in IT with a basis in programming. I will then be going on to get my bachelors etc. I do all of my classes solely online so I only get half of the national average for BAH to go to school but it works well as I work full time. Im sure there are many different schools that will offer the same types of things for us as veterans.
