Transition Requires New SkillsOctober 9, 2018 | :
by Transition to Veterans Program Office
Most service members agree that transitioning from the military into civilian life requires a new set of skills regardless of rank or the number of years served. Whether you plan to seek employment, attend an institution of higher education, obtain a credential or start a business, the Transition Assistance Program (TAP) curriculum, Transition Goals, Plans, Success (GPS), courses are your ‘basic training’ for transitioning out of the military.
The transition process begins with Pre-separation Counseling—a mandatory session where counselors introduce the Individual Transition Plan (ITP) to discuss education and training, employment and career goals, financial management, health and well-being, and relocation and housing, amongst a myriad of benefits and services available to veterans.
