KUDER, named after it's designer, Dr. Frederick Kuder, it is an online assessment and education placement tool that Sailors can use to determine which career fields best suit them. It is basically a diagnostic program that determines the best career field according to a Sailors desires, skill set, and work aptitude. Sailors take the initial assessments and the KUDER does the rest.
KUDER will determine which field the Sailor is best suited based upon researched-based interests, and the member's skills and work values. KUDER can also show what type of additional formal education the Sailor will need to go into certain fields plus show schools by region, major, and degree availability.
In addition to determining the career field and education requirements, it also has a MOS/NEC converter to cross over military skills to a career field. Unfortunately it does not convert Navy ratings at this time, but it will convert NEC codes.
KUDER allows Sailors to identify their interests, explore their options, and plan for career success. You and the Navy College Office/VEC Counselors can assist Sailors in interpreting this tool; however, Sailors can explore it themselves.
We have developed a Power point presentation to show step by step how to register, log on, and use the KUDER. Currently it is in a PDF format due to the size of the power point. However, if you require the original power point file for training , just email me and I will send it to you.
