Army Embraces Credentialing to Provide Soldiers a Boost during Transition

first_imgParticipation in the Army credentialing program has continued to grow over the past several years, helping soldiers leverage their training and experience for licenses and certifications that will ease their transition into civilian careers.In an effort to boost the employment options for separating personnel, the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) has begun linking credentialing opportunities to every military occupational specialty in the service, reported Army Times. In 2014, about 20,000 soldiers earned credentials in 65 specialties.The Army credentialing program allows personnel to earn government licenses, such as a commercial driver’s license issued by a state government or an FAA license; or a certification from a professional or trade association, such as the American Culinary Federation. The TRADOC initiative provides soldiers a large selection of credentials covering many professional occupations.Under a Department of Transportation initiative already under way, more than 10,000 soldiers and veterans have earned commercial driver’s licenses since it was launched in 2011, the Army announced in November.Soldiers competing for promotion to sergeant or staff sergeant also can earn points for gaining technical certifications, according to the story.

Buy Microsoft Office for 100 get a 50 Amazon gift card

first_imgMicrosoft Cheapskates don’t use Microsoft Office. Or, at least, they don’t pay for it: Microsoft offers pretty decent freebie versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint that live in your browser.And let’s not forget the various free alternatives, such as Google Docs, LibreOffice and WPS Office.All that being said, some people have a particular need for Microsoft’s suite — and if you’re one of them, you might as well try to score a deal. Like this one: Today only, Amazon is offering a $50 gift card when you purchase a 12-month Office 365 Home subscription for $99.99. That’s for a digital download.See it at AmazonThis version supports up to six users, and they don’t all have to be in your house. Each person gets a 1-terabyte OneDrive cloud account, which is definitely one of the bigger value-adds here.You also get Publisher, which is one of the few remaining desktop-publishing tools, and Outlook, one of the few remaining full-featured mail clients.The regular $100 annual price bugs me. I’d really like to see Microsoft drop it to $50 — but that would be unparalleled, so we have to settle for sales like these.Your thoughts?Blue Yeti USB microphone: $70 (save $49)blue-yeti-steel-red Blue A good microphone is essential for everything from podcasting to Skype calling, and Blue makes some of the best consumer mics out there. They can be a little pricey, though.Ah, but this: For a limited time and while supplies last, BuyDig has the Blue Yeti USB microphone in Steel Red (drool) for $69.99 when you apply promo code MICD. Price elsewhere (including Amazon) for this color: $119. The black one can often be found for $100.See it at BuyDigThis attractive desktop mic works with PCs and Macs and supports four recording patterns. I haven’t used one myself, but the user reviews everywhere you look are overwhelmingly positive.Definitely Cheapskate approved.CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.
