I've heard I can participate in career skills training programs while still on active duty, is that true? If so, how can I learn more?
It's true during your final 180 days of service. Public law and DoD Instruction 1122.29 authorized the development of career skills training programs transitioning Soldiers may participate in during that time frame. The Army's implementation instruction will be published soon. Transitioning Soldiers who are interested in participating should visit their installation Education Counselor for more information. The approval authority for participation in the Career Skills Program is the battalion/squadron commander.
