Abstract

This chapter reviews the United States COOL programs' promotion of certification during military employment to support transition to civilian employment and the CareerOneStop platform which profiles certifications. Some certifications on CareerOneStop have a designation from COOL indicating relevance to military workers. The chapter presents analyses showing that certain types of certifications are more likely to have a military designation than others. In brief, the designation is more likely for accredited and industry-recognized certifications and those tied to occupations with lower annual median wages and predictions of decrease and increase in employment versus a more stable trajectory. Some occupations also significantly differ in the likelihood of a military designation for certifications tied to it. The authors close with a discussion of recommendations including additional questions for consideration.
