Studies have shown that there are occupational credentials related to most military occupational specialties. These credentials may be directly related to the military occupation (i.e., related to most – approximately 80 percent – of the military duties) or related to a set of embedded skills attained by performing in the military specialty (i.e., related to some of the critical duties performed).
The Department of Defense recognizes that providing civilian credentialing opportunities to Service members is an important means of professionalizing the Force. Providing these opportunities also serves to enhance recruitment and retention and it helps transitioning Service members make a more seamless transition to the civilian workforce.
This legislation requires the Secretaries of the military departments, in coordination with the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness, to the maximum extent practicable, make information on civilian credentialing opportunities available to members of the Armed Forces at every stage of their military career life cycle. Information linking hundreds of military occupations to civilian credentials is made available on the Services’ COOL websites:
