Should the military pay for civilian credentials?

The military should provide additional monthly stipends for service members in a field where the civilian sector offers advanced credentialing. Those who maintain these credentials which enhance their job performance would receive additional pay on top of their base pay. Examples for technical or administrative career fields could include HRA, CISSP, CPhT or relevant collegiate degrees. Those in command could receive additional pay for Six Sigma or PMP certifications for instance.
