Work with a team that is committed to the DoD SkillBridge Program

We are proud to be an approved DoD SkillBridge Internship Program to help provide an invaluable chance for our service members to work, learn and transition in to successful civilian career areas.

 DoD SkillBridge Internship

We host a DoD SkillBridge opportunity that is a Training and Development Specialist internship.  We are a commercial training company specializing in DoD 8570 IT certification training. The internship provides training in all aspects of a commercial training company, including operations, course delivery, business development and marketing.   This internship will prepare servicemembers with the skills to join a training organization or to work within a training division of a corporation.

Please Note:  This is NOT an internship in which you engage in an educational program.  You will be eligible to earn a certification in the internship, but the scope is focused on learning aspects of running and administering a service business.  Associated projects are assigned to our interns based on their skills, abilities and career interests.

Timing and Details

Separating Service members can be granted up to 180 days of permissive duty to focus solely on training full-time with approved industry partners after unit commander (first O-4/Field Grade commander in chain of command) provides written authorization and approval. These industry partners offer real-world training and work experience in in-demand fields of work while having the opportunity to evaluate the Service member’s suitability for the work.

Tell your Commander!

SkillBridge is an excellent benefit for installation and Unit Commanders who have members nearing military separation.  Commanders can greatly ease the transition to civilian life by supporting their reports’ interest in SkillBridge. When mission permits, Commanders who support SkillBridge participation are helping their personnel transition more seamlessly from service to a civilian career with a trusted employer.
