Mission Statement

Certavet connects the active duty, veteran and their family members with the tools needed to acquire portable industry recognized certifications for their training, skills or interests allowing for a more seamless transition to a civilian career.

Description

Certavet is designed to deliver an industry certification path for every job in the military that has a corresponding industry certification. This will give the active duty member an opportunity to inform themselves as to what industry certifications correspond to their military training/experience. Certavet will help mentor them to obtain industry certification so they can maximize their potential in the civilian workforce. If they have an industry certification then Certavet will be used for advisement as to a continued certification path.

Certavet has the unique ability to be available to the active duty member beginning at their enlistment and throughout their military service. The active duty member will be able to use Certavet to not only stay current on industry certification/licensure requirements, but to also compare what their skills would be worth in the civilian workforce with industry certifications. With this knowledge made available to the active duty member as part of their military career development, the service member will be aware of the expectations of the civilian job market and be prepared for a more seamless transition upon leaving the military.

The military family can befit from Certavet in many ways. If military spouses had a portable industry certified skill set, then transfer would be easier as they would be prepared for employment no matter where they transferred to. Certavet can be used to allow military dependents to research career fields and the certification requirements to prepare them for the work force if they are not going to attend college or to support themselves while attending college. If all veterans had a portable industry certified skill set their transition to the civilian workforce would be less challenging.
