4 USAES Credentialing Pilot Program
Strategic Guidance President’s “We Can’t Wait” Initiative Payment of Professional Credentialing Expenses for Military Members 16 JUL 09 Army Transition Policy 29 AUG 11 National Defense Authorization Act Credentialing Act 22 AUG 12) Army Credentialing Program 18 DEC 12 Five Phase Multi Year Plan Research: FY13 complete Cadre (create mentors): FY14 ongoing Student (build Regt capacity): late FY 14 for ALC, SLC, WOBC, WOAC, EBOLC, ECCC PME Synchronization: FY15-19 Sustainment: Post FY19 Endstate: Soldiers provided an opportunity to receive civilian credentialing or licensing commensurate with MOS skills and management experience they acquire during service. One year pilot program based on four selected credentials Certified Construction Manager (CCM) Project Management Professional (PMP) Certified Assistant in Project Management (CAPM) Certified Manager (CM) Using initial projections, 220 Engineer Soldiers will be afforded the opportunity to obtain credentials at an estimated cost of $204,985, anticipated FY14 start date. Introduction and overview of pilot program for Engineer Regiment Soldiers attending PME. (Participant completion of credentials is not expected during PME) ALC, SLC, WOAC, WOBC, EOBC, ECCC Selection of best qualified candidates with reasonable assistance/mentorship provided in the attainment of selected credential. Engineer School Lead for Credentialing will provide oversight of applicant’s enrollment and completion of selected credential. Credentials offered to instructors and key personnel IOT provide credentialed mentors. SEP 2013 – TRADOC signed the credentialing policy authorizing Active and Reserve Soldiers the opportunity to test for nationally recognized credentials and certifications Funding is our next milestone. Contract packets are being developed and will be ready for submission upon approval of funds. Possibility of USACE providing $28K to get cadre members started DOTLD lead, SGM Meyer, is developing the USAES credentialing policy letter which will need legal reviewg is assured Future efforts and focus for the Engineer School Credentialing effort will include continued gap assessments between MOS qualification and civilian certification. Partnership with civilian trade entities is a key component in overcoming current gaps between Military and Civilian qualification. Partnership with Academic institutions IOT provide degree plans and credit for military knowledge and experience. Continuous search of employment opportunities for transitioning Soldiers.  Inclusion of all proponents in support of the Engineer Regiment Credentialing Effort. Request TRADOC and/or MSCoE funds to initiate program

There are 30 possible experience areas; for each function/role and phase ask yourself the following question: Did the decisions that you were empowered to make directly impact the successful completion of the project and were you directly responsible in charge of construction management services and for protecting the interests of the project/owner? If you can answer "yes "to both parts of the question, then select the checkbox in that area; if you answer "no" then do not check that box. To qualify for the program, you MUST be able to answer "yes" to all of the required areas as marked by the brackets. If you cannot answer "yes" to the required areas, then do not submit an application at this time. You will be asked to verify this experience in the project attachments in the application.
