New U.S Commandant Instruction notifies service members approaching retirement of SkillBridge training program which provides a chance to work and learn in civilian career areas.
The Department of Defense SkillBridge initiative connects separating and retiring Service members to civilian businesses and companies with available training or internship opportunities that offer a high probability of employment, facilitating job access in the civilian sector upon transition from military service.
Those who meet the qualifications and receive command approval may participate in civilian job and employment skills training, including apprenticeships and internships, up to six months (180 days) prior to separation.
