FORT RUCKER, Ala. (March 6, 2014) -- Beginning a new career as a civilian employee when leaving the military can be filled with exciting opportunities to grow both professionally and personally.
In order to succeed, one must be ready to take the time required to manage all aspects of a new career. As part of the enhanced Transition Goals, Plans, Success Program, service members and spouses have the option of selecting from three tailored, two-day tracks to attend: a career technical training track for those seeking job-ready skills and industry-recognized credentials in shorter-term training programs; an education track, for those pursuing a traditional college education; and an entrepreneurship track, for those wanting to start a business.
Conducted by the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Career Technical Training Track assists service members and spouses in transitioning to civilian life, while navigating through the choices and decisions involved in selecting a technical career.
Participants will receive assistance in identifying required credentials and investigating training options to pursue those qualifications. The outcome is a customized plan for success to help smooth a service members' transition to a technical career.
During CTTT, participants will define their personal technical career goals; identify required credentials; find technical training opportunities; identify local Veteran resources; and create a plan to utilize their VA education benefits.
For an optimal experience in this course, VA recommends completion of the Core Transition GPS program prior to attending. If available, participants should bring their individual transition plan, military service transcripts, O*Net self-assessment/MOC Crosswalk results and personal budget to the workshop.
For more information on the course, call the installation's VA benefits briefer at 255-1868. You should also contact the ACAP office at 255-2558 to sign up for the next available CTTT here.
