While skills learned in the military have long been valued by many employers, Army National Guard Soldiers can now obtain apprenticeship certifications through the Guard Apprenticeship Program Initiative, which will allow those same skills to translate more easily into requirements many employers are seeking. The program, which launched in a ceremony Monday, partners with the Department of Labor to provide for national apprenticeship certification in a variety of Military Occupational Specialties, said Army Maj. Robert A. Lee, program manager at the National Guard Bureau, adding that it gives Guard Soldiers another advantage in the civilian workforce.
