  • PG 15 - Sometimes when drafting a crosswalk, multiple credentials are shown. There can be 20-30 related credentials to specific occupations. You will need to do research for the specific occupation and look at job listings to determine specific requirements. (Slide 10-11: 10min)NOTE: Credentialing can cost money.
  • PG 14Facilitator: Explain the main types of credentials and their differences.  It is important to note the difference between certification programs and certificate programs:Certification programs attest to demonstrated competency in an occupational area. They typically have recertification requirements that might include continuing education units. A certificate program, on the other hand, is a training program on a topic for which participants receive a certificate after attendance and/or completion of the coursework. These certificates typically don’t convey competency.Apprenticeship – A registered apprenticeship program is an industry based approach to training that combines paid on-the-job learning with job related education. It is a written plan to move an employed apprentice from low or no skill level to the full performance level for occupationally identified skill sets. The program must meet program parameters established under the National Apprenticeship Act, administered by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Apprenticeship or a Secretary of Labor approved State Apprenticeship Agency.Army National Guard and Army Reserve Spouses may qualify for Federal educational benefits, i.e. DANTES (see your educational services officer). All spouses and dependents eligible for OASC on DANTES website.

  •  PG-26 – UPDATE to match PGFacilitator Summary: (Slide 18-19: 5min) Display competency PPT and learning objectives. Summarize what was covered in the MOC module. Facilitator Note: The information reviewed in this module was an overview. There are a lot of other things to consider when looking for your next career. The DOLEW Track will help you further explore aspects to consider, and I encourage you to conduct research on your own to ensure you are making the most informed decision possible.  Final Note: Be sure to update your ITP with information you’ve researched and note any alterations you may have made to your track selection. Finally, identify and pursue the next steps you need to take in your transition process.
