GI Bill for certifications

I am wondering if anyone out there knows the answer to this, since I am having trouble searching through the pain that is the VA's website.

I'm a 4 year Marine Corps active duty veteran currently recieving the MGIB. I know that I can use my GI Bill educational benefits to get many personal trainer certifications (CPT, ACE, the whole alphabet soup almost) but...

Will the GI Bill reimburse me for Crossfit Certifications?

Re: GI Bill for certifications

I'm not sure about the the Marines but us (Airforce) have a base education office that could probably give you the answers better than I. However, what i have found is that the MGIB will pay (or assist) for vocational schools or classes. How you go about processing it I'm not sure and your base education office might have a better idea. If you dont have one hit me up and i will put you in contact with our Base Education Chief.

You can't use the GI Bill. I'm a Navy vet and I was wondering the same thing as I want to attend a cert this summer. I e-mailed the certification info people and they told me that you cannot use the GI Bill, but as a vet we get a discount on the cost of the cert.
