MSSC Leads the Way
MSSC is at the forefront of the military’s credentialing initiative. Our CEO, Leo Reddy, was recently a guest writer for Military Times. An excerpt of his article, “Industry credentials are solid first step in transition” is below.
“Many programs and initiatives have been launched over the past few years to help veterans get civilian jobs, and many employers have committed to hire and even train veterans. But a creative initiative embedded in the 2014 Defense Authorization Act can give transitioning service members an advantage even before they hang up their uniforms.
Under this initiative, all the services are required to provide active-duty members with an opportunity to secure a civilian manufacturing industry credential while still in service. That allows them to make an immediate transition into industry careers while spending little or no time unemployed.
For the military, the one-time investment in providing tuition assistance or other funding for certifications, credentials and licensure can save thousands per person in unemployment compensation for former service members.”
MSSC has conducted several pilots with the military over the past two years and continues to lead the way in helping Service Members and Veterans transition into civilian employment.
