Engineer Credentialing Program

United States Army Engineer School (USAES) Credentialing, Education, Certification, and Licensing (CECL)

The USAES CECL Program provides Engineers the opportunity to obtain applicable, high-quality credentials by validating their individual Soldier skills, training, and work experiences. Credentialing improves military-technical competence, thereby improving Army readiness, while enhancing a Soldier’s ability to secure meaningful employment upon transitioning from military service.

The USAES CECL currently provides no-cost enrollment into one credentialing program, free enrollment for three licensing prep programs (FE, PE, ARE), and reimbursement for over 100 civilian credentialing programs and licenses, including study materials, memberships required to obtain and maintain credentials, and renewal fees. Each Soldier is limited to $800/FY unless otherwise noted on the Regimental Approved Credentialing Memorandum.
