Leaders announce new credentialing pilot program


In an unprecedented move that will dramatically improve the future of Soldiers, Under Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy, Sergeant Major of the Army Daniel A. Dailey and U.S. Rep. John Carter announced Tuesday at a press conference an assistance program that will prepare Soldiers for life outside the military.

“I’m proud to announce Fort Hood will be the pilot site for the Army’s new Credentialing Assistance Program,” Carter said.

The program is a brainchild of Dailey’s, who said he had a vision two years ago of being able to ensure Soldiers use the well-earned skills they learned from being in the Army to transition into the civilian world. Soldier education has been an important focus of Dailey’s since he became the sergeant major of the Army in January 2015.

“The limited user test (at Fort Hood) will serve as an indicator of the resources we need to potentially roll out a broader program across the Army, as well as gauge the interest of our Soldiers, industry and academic partners and it will provide a baseline for any future requirements we need to expand this program,” Dailey explained. “Next to academic equivalency, this is one of the most important things we can do for our Soldiers and their Families, in terms of employment and education. It’s directly tied to readiness, as well as the transition of our Soldiers.”

Credentialing will allow Soldiers to attain certain professional and technical certificates through the Soldier Development Center, credentials they can use toward promotion points and are recognized by civilian industry.
