Note that COOL is not a credentialing or testing agency. You don't register for or take credential exams on COOL— but you do learn about where you can.
NAVY COOL - Credentialing Opportunities On-Line
This web-based hub catalogs and defines comprehensive information on occupational credentials — including certifications, licenses, apprenticeships, and growth opportunities — correlating with every Navy rating, job, designator, and collateral duty/out of rate assignment. It provides "how to" instructions for pursuing these credentials, links to credentialing organizations, and cross-references to programs that may help service members pay for credentialing fees, such as Montgomery GI Bill. It also has links to the United Services Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP), Navy Tuition Assistance Program, and college information.
This program was developed in coordination with the Departments of Defense and Labor as another tool in our inventory of blended training solutions.
