Coordination and Integration of Military Education with National Career Education: Phase 2: Final Report. Technical Report No. 890.
Smith, Janice B.; Callahan, W. Thomas
The study is an investigation and demonstration of the degree to which military experience in certain specialties is continuous with the career development patterns of workers in the entire United States society. Selected characteristics of 24 military occupations (six from each branch of the services) were compared with similar characteristics of civilian sector occupations or portions of those occupations in the areas of: formal education, vocational/technical training, previous experience, licensing or certification, and union apprenticeship/journeymanship. The study found that with the exception of combat occupations, military and civilian occupations can be coherently compared. In all, 71 tables, covering 144 pages are included. One lists the 24 military occupations studied. Three other tables list the adequacy of military training and work experience for meeting vocational/technical training requirements, previous experience requirements, and licensing/certification requirements of selected civilian occupations. The remaining 67 tables compare in detail the civilian employment standards of comparable occupations with the respective military occupations in the categories listed above. There are four appendixes: two on sources of military and civilian occupational information; and one each on an examination of army crawler tractor operator MOS 62E, and a suggested approach to combat arms occupations.
