The Employment Readiness Program primarily provides assistance to spouses in acquiring skills, networks, and resources that will allow them to participate in the workforce and to develop a career/work plan. Services are free to Spouses, Soldiers, Retirees, Reservists, and relocating DOD civilian personnel.
This service also extends to their family members. Services offered include employment counseling, assistance in job search, and job skills training.
Military Spouses are the backbone of the military family. Adding to the strength through education will only make the backbone of the military family that much stronger. You have thought about it, dreamed about it, talked it over with your spouse, and have finally made the decision. You are going to school. Whether it's your first time or you are a returning student you might be asking yourself: Where Do I Start? Your installation Education Center should be your first stop for information about local education programs and opportunities. A key factor in successfully completing your educational goals is choosing the right school or program. There are several important questions to consider: Is the school accredited? What kind of organization accredited the school? Will my credits transfer if I move? If you are unsure of an institutions accreditation you can visit www.ed.gov
to view the schools level(s) of accreditation. If you are taking courses outside of the Unites States visit World Education Services online at www.wes.org
for academic credit evaluation of courses taken at colleges or universities outside of the U.S. (excerpt taken from NMFA Military Spouse Education Resource Guide, Second Edition)
