Service members are required to attend a career transition course in accordance with the Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) Act, Department of Defense Directives and Army Regulations. Separating Army General Officers require a transition program that not only meets relevant laws and policies, but that addresses transition at a senior executive level. The Army’s standard course for the transitioning personnel is the SFL-TAP program. However, due to the relatively low number of transitioning General Officers, the high demand on their time, their senior professional level and their geographic dispersion, a unique transition course was developed to meet their needs and requirements.
HigherEchelon prepares General Officers and their spouses to transition from executive military service to the civilian workforce in accordance with the Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) Act and other related directives and policies. Our curriculum and instructional design is based on principles of executive education using adult learning models and challenging experiential education. Through collaboration with industry HigherEchelon provides challenging exercises in breakout groups and reflection opportunities for the transitioning generals develop the products and skills they need to reenter the civilian workforce. We focus on pre-separation counseling, individual transition planning, resume preparation, networking preparation, and individual employment assistance.
