Every year, approximately 200,000 men and women leave U.S. military service and return to life as civilians, a process known as the military to civilian transition. The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) provides information, tools and training to ensure Service members, their spouses and/or caregivers are prepared for the next step in civilian life.
LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The virtual curriculum has been redesigned to better prepare service members for success in their civilian life. The virtual curriculum was added to benefit service members at geographically separated units, those with a short-notice separation and those contemplating retirement.
The redesign updated all requirements to suffice as completion of the TAP program, the same credit given to attendees of the inperson five day workshop: Financial Planning for Transition, Department of Labor Employment Fundamentals of Career Transition, Department of Veterans Affairs Benefits and Services, Military Occupational Code (MOC) Crosswalk, and Managing your (MY) Transition.
