EC-Council partners with
Military, Active Duty, Reserves, Air/Army National Guard

EC-Council has a dedicated team consisting of all military Veterans who can assist you with all your questions. Our team delivers concierge enrollment to help you through the process of using your benefits and receiving world-class training and credentialing through EC-Council.

If you are a member of the Armed Forces in almost any capacity, your specific Service components have provisions for you to receive training and credentialing. Often the Service will pay for both MOS/AFSC related and non-related training programs. These benefit programs differ by service and generally come under the heading of each Service’s COOL program. Contact us to find out what you’re eligible for.

ARMY COOL/ARMY IgnitED

EC-Council is proud to partner with the U.S. Army to provide the highest quality cyber security training available. Active-duty soldiers receive $4,000 per fiscal year in Army CA benefits. To use them, soldiers must have an Army IgnitED account to search Army COOL-approved classes. Use your Army IgnitED account set up to upload course quotes under International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) and use your Army CA benefits to fund your cybersecurity training certifications. Army IgnitED will fund the full training course, exam voucher, and will also fund additional add-on items that pertain directly to your training course.

The current list of approved Army IgnitED training courses is:

Air Force COOL

Air Force COOL provides qualified Airmen the opportunity to use Air Force COOL to fund credentialing training and certificating in AFSC and Non-AFSC related courses.

Marine Corps COOL

While Marine Corps COOL does not fund full training programs, approved exam vouchers are funded for Active-Duty service members. EC-Council believes in providing high quality cybersecurity training to military members who want to take advantage of their military benefits. Because full training courses cannot be funded through Navy/Marine Corps COOL, EC-Council offers the training course at a discounted military rate.

Certification to Framework Mappings

A core component of EC-Council Certification development is the Job Task Analysis (JTA) Process we undertake before any certification is built. Major frameworks like the NICE/NIST Framework, NIST 800-171, GCHQ, and others contribute to content areas of each of our programs. As a result, EC-Council Certifications and Training programs are mapped to most major published Frameworks.
