    I've never been using it at the exact same time, but I honestly can't imagine it would be an issue.

    I never filed for reimbursement for a certification at the same time as I was going to school, but I did afterwards.

    I took Sec+ in March of 2013 while I was enrolled full time online but didn't file for reimbursement until August of that year when I wasn't in school. Wasn't an issue.

    If you're in San Antonio, try New Horizons for CCNA and CompTIA courses with exams at the end. My buddy spent a good deal of his benefits there and they were accepted no problem. He did A+, Net+, Sec+, CCENT, CCNA, and CCNA Security.

    Edit: I meant SiloTech as mentioned below.

    Thanks for the info. I have contacted them, however the issue is that they have to have so many folks registered before they can do a class.

    Just to confirm: I was able to use my Post 9/11 Bonus year (if you zero out Ch 30, you get one additional year of benefits from ch 33) to pay for my CISM exam, so it can be done.

    Has anyone successfully used the Post 9/11 GI Bill just to pay for a cert? I didn't take a course but paid for SEC+ last week out of pocket. I have filled out many forms and have to mail some into the regional office as well. There really isn't a great amount of info online in connecting all the dots.
