If preparing for your future outside of the Air Force feels like sorting through thousands of folders, you're doing it wrong. The Career Skills Program is a transition program for Airmen that allows them to pursure civilian job opportunities while still in the military. Airmen can participate in apprenticeships, interships job shadowing and more by reaching out to the Cannon Education Office for more information.

Joint Base Langley-Eustis

Airmen transitioning from military to civilian life now have new Transition Assistance Program curriculum and requirements that must be completed prior to separating.

The United States Congress has mandated the new TAP guidance will take effect beginning on Oct. 1, 2019.

Members who have completed the pre-separation counseling and have been signed off on the electronic form by Sept. 30, 2019 are grandfathered in the 2019 fiscal year curriculum.

If members fail to receive a signed electronic form by the deadline, they must re-accomplish the Pre-separation Counseling and complete applicable all new requirements in the FY20 curriculum.

The goal of TAP is to provide information, tools and training to ensure service members and their spouses are prepared for the next step in civilian life; whether pursuing additional education, finding a career or starting their own business.

For a detailed explanation of what those requirements are, per individual, please call the Langley Airman and Family Readiness Center at 757-764-3990 or 757-764-3994 for additional guidance.
