McAfee Institute exams are approved for reimbursement through the VA if you are eligible. There is no limit to the number of tests you may take, or number of times you may take the same test. And, VA will pay for tests even if you fail them.

Available Benefits

VA pays only the test costs, or up to $2,000 for each test. Fees connected with obtaining a license or certification such as the training are not reimbursable. Payment is issued after you submit proof of payment to VA.
