Soldier Today: Army COOL – Credentialing Opportunities On-Line

April 1, 2019

The Sergeant Major of the Army (SMA) Daniel A. Dailey discusses a new Army credentialing program with host SMA (Retired) Ken Preston, VP, NCO & Soldier Programs, AUSA. How do we get our Soldiers trained and educated for jobs once they are out of the Army? Find out about the new Army COOL program, currently in a Limited User Test (LUT), and how it connects Soldiers with civilian credentials. Soldiers can match credentialing opportunities to their current Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) or pursue credentialing goals outside their MOS – especially important for combat Soldiers. Civilian employers can also use the Army COOL site to learn more about how military training and experience might relate to civilian jobs.

Soldier Today, a segment of AUSA’s Army Matters Podcast, focuses on what is important to Soldiers and NCOs. Recommendations for future topics are welcome via email at
