Soldiers can now earn free journeyman certificates for doing their everyday jobs
The Army’s push to facilitate credentialing that soldiers can use once they transition off of active duty has taken another step forward with the offer of a journeyman apprenticeship that can be completed with the training and job description you already have.
Through the United Services Military Apprenticeship Program, soldiers can pick one of more than 100 job titles that fit their military occupational specialty’s description, according to a Thursday release from Training and Doctrine Command.
“Soldiers can self-enroll at no extra cost or use of benefits,” the release said.
More than 100 MOSs can participate, though, unfortunately, no credentials are available for the Army’s largest—the 11B infantryman.
Senior infantry sergeants, however, can earn a computer operator or office manager certificate. A supply specialist, for example, can earn computer operator, household manager, housekeeper, retail store manager, and purchasing agent credentials.
