Transition GPS


   Transition Assistance Program (TAP)

(Recently known as Goals, Plans, Success (GPS) Program )

The Transition provides separating/retiring service members and their families with the skills, tools and self-confidence necessary to successfully re-enter into the civilian work force, pursue higher education or technical training or retire.

The goal of the program is to provide professional career development resources throughout the military career life cycle (MLC).  Per OPNAVINST 1900.2C and the Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) to Hire Heroes Act of 2011, every Service member is eligible for and will have full access to transition services and must meet Career Readiness Standards (CRS) prior to separation.
