Air Force Prepares Airmen for Civilian Life Through Training

The Air Force instituted a career skills program for eligible Airmen, reports the Rapid City Journal.  With this program, eligible Airmen can start training for their civilian career six months before separation or retirement.  Opportunities available include apprenticeships, on-the-job training, employment skills training and internships.  This training will be at little or no cost to the Airmen and will be able to be completed in lieu of military duties for those eligible.

You can learn more about Ellsworth Air Force Base by looking at the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive or issue hub.
