Career Technical Training Track Assists in Transitioning from Military
/ Published July 08, 2014
BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- The Career Technical Training Track is now available to Service members and spouses at Buckley Air Force Base.
As part of the enhanced Transition Goals, Plans and 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/or 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 this Career Technical Training Track, participants will:
· Define their personal technical career goals
· Identify required credentials
· Find technical training opportunities
· Identify local Veteran resources
· Create a plan to utilize their VA education benefits
VA's current curriculum builds onto the Core Transition GPS program. 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, please contact your installation's VA Benefits Advisor at 720-847-4838 or DSN 847-4838.
