DoD/Services' Credentialing/COOL Program

The Defense Department (DoD) and Military Services have recognized the important role that occupational credentials can play in professionalizing the Force and in enhancing a member’s ability to transition to the civilian workforce upon completion of military service.

Credentialing Opportunities On-Line (COOL) programs can help you navigate through the various civilian credentialing opportunities that are available for your military occupational specialty. Service COOL websites provide a one-stop shop for you to explore credentials, recognized by the civilian community, that can enhance your current performance in your job as well help prepare you for civilian employment. Take a look and begin preparing for your future.
