Career Skills Program
Career Skills Programs (CSP), such as apprenticeships, on-the-job (OJT) training, job shadowing, employment skills training, and internships offer skills training opportunities to Airmen (officers and enlisted) preparing to transition from military to civilian employment
- To be eligible, an Airman must complete at least 180 continuous days on active duty and is expected to be discharged or released from active duty within 180 days of starting the CSP
- Coordination and planning of a successful application may require as little as 30 or more than 180 days or more depending on assorted variables. Begin coordination 12 months prior to your projected ETS or retirement
- Participation by an Airman is self-initiated, applications must be validated by the Education and Training Section Chief and final approval is granted by the Unit/Squadron Commander authorized to impose non-judicial punishment in the Airman’s chain of command
- Applicants will work with their Transition Goals, Plans, Success (TGPS) or other locally designated guidance counselor to gather data and complete their application
- CSP must offer a high probability of post-service employment with the provider or any employer and offer enrollment at no cost or minimal cost to the Airman
- CSP should improve the Airman’s level of skill and broaden the range of skill by building directly upon the occupational skills acquired during military service
- CSP should improve or provide skills that may not relate to the occupational skills acquired in the military
The occupational area in which CSP is offered should:
- Be in sufficient demand in the civilian workforce with high probability of post-service employment
- Offer a rate of pay in the civilian workforce that is commensurate with the knowledge skills, and abilities required to successfully perform the occupation
- Offer reasonable prospects of advancement, especially if it is an entry-level position
The four (4) types of Career Skills Programs are:
- Apprenticeships – are generally a combination of on-the-job training (OJT) and related instruction that may be sponsored jointly by an employer and union groups, individual employers, or employer association.
- Internships – a type of work experience for entry-level job-seekers. Internships may be completed in federal, state, or local government, or in the private sector and may consist of OJT and work experience.
- On-the-Job Training - job skills learned at a place of work while performing the actual job
- Job Shadowing - is a type of OJT work experience that is normally performed in one day, where individuals learn about a job by observing the day-to-day activities of someone in the current workforce
