So I still have 2 years left on my GI Bill benefits and would like to put them to good use in a non-degree program. Anyone have any suggestions? I would like something that I can apply in both the public and private sector. What about the COMPTIA program?

Look into WGU, it is very cost effective (GI Bill actually ends up paying you about $800 after you pay tuition), and you get a whole lot of IT certificates, they are fully accredited nationwide. www.wgu.edu

It depends on your career field. COMPTIA Security+ is a good start if you want to work in Federal IT, especially if you are looking at the DoD side of the house. What is your career field? Do you already have a Masters degree?
And only in America do we want the system to force us to do the right thing so we can take the credit.

Checkout the link below. I just moved to San Antonio and I came across this company at a job fair. You can get IT Certs through them using your Post 9/11. I'm starting Dec 5th. They're in different states.

In addition to IT, you could look into some long needed skills such as electrician or plumber.
