Transition Time for Veterans (Interactive Tool)
This interactive tool allows veterans to estimate the preparation time required to transition from their military occupation to another one in Indiana. "Transition time," while measured in weeks of academic, technical or vocational training, is a relative measure to provide an estimate of the relative time moving from one type of job to another. This method, in effect, compares the similarity of education and training between occupations..
