Soldiers, the ACAP, SFL, TAP, check-the-block-before-you-separate, stupid-mandatory-five-day workshop, or whatever else you want to call it is a very informative course. Even a Reservist with his civilian life in order can benefit from the time blocks covering the resume, GI Bill, healthcare, and other things involving the transition. The entire class is also a major opportunity to network with the dozens of professionals that’ll brief you on particular topics during your enrollment in the week long course.
After that horror, you’ll be able to take a few two-day workshops. There’s one each to cover employment and entrepreneurship. The third, Accessing Higher Education, covers the GI Bill in it’s entirety and college resources- listed below.
