Live Webinar

Thursday, March 22, 2018 | 12:00 - 1:00 pm ET


Occupational credentialing is promoted across the military Services to enhance recruitment, professional development, retention, and transition to the civilian workforce. Through the military Services’ Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) programs, military occupations have been mapped to over 1,000 civilian certifications and Services will pay for certifications for Service members.  In FY 16, the Services paid for over 45,000 certifications and licenses.  Learn about the COOL programs, including methods of matching military occupations to civilian certifications, credential payment policies, and how to facilitate credentialing of Service members.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify the types of military occupations to which credentialing applies
  • Identify military and other government programs that have been developed to promote credentialing of Service members
