When you are an enlisted Servicemember in the United States Military, there are some things that a person can receive that can assist them in career exploration, both while they are in the military, and after separation from military service. Assistance in finding and keeping a job takes a couple of methods, one type involves training while in the military, other involves military aided funds after your military training is done.
Civilian After Service OJT- Many Servicemembers use their MGIB benefits to go to college and attend a university or school with the idea of attaining a 4-year degree. If you are a reservist, there are funding options for civilian OJT training from your Reserve MGIB benefits up to $263 dollars a month. There are additional ways of using your GI bill benefits, such as a vocational or technical OJT training apprenticeship program. The programs are driving by the civilian industry need for trained personnel, and if you serve in the construction or technical field in the military it is very possible that you will qualify for an apprenticeship job-training program. If you are engaging in training for a new job, you can collect up to $935 dollars a month from your MGIB benefits if you previously served on active duty. OJT Active Duty- The programs that are available do not require any off duty hours, and you can benefit from the training and vocational training that you engage in while serving on active duty service in the Military. It gives credit for military training and service in specific vocational programs and duty fields allowing certain personnel institutional technical and vocational credit for their military service. There are a number of programs that the military uses to provide for vocational training in the military, and if you are serving. You must possess a HS diploma or GED and you have to otherwise qualify for the OJT military program that is ran by the DoD and the Department of labor.
Working in a job that qualifies you can at times receive up to 50 percent of the apprenticeship required by a civilian job while still serving in the military and it yields a certificate of completion when a Servicemember completes the program. This certificate is widely recognized in the industrial and vocational civilian fields.
