WICHITA, Kansas - Professional credentials play a vital role in today’s workforce. Industry certifications allow employers the ability to determine if a prospective employee possesses the necessary skillset, knowledge and experience to perform a specific job.
For many service members, the transition to the civilian job sector, specifically career transition, can be a daunting task. Often times, the ability to utilize military experience can be negated by the lack of formal education and professional certifications associated with the respective career field. For service members working in specialized career fields, obtaining a professional certification can open doors to immediate employment upon leaving the armed services.
In an effort to assist service members with obtaining industry-recognized professional certifications and licensures relative to their military jobs, each branch of the armed services has implemented a Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) program. The COOL programs provide service members with information on certifications that align with their active duty jobs, professional certification training programs, and how to access funding to cover the cost associated with obtaining a certification or license.
