PRESEPARATION COUNSELINGThe pre-separation counseling is an initial overview that lays the foundation for a smooth transition. All military members should receive this counseling six (6) months prior to their separation date. The pre-separation counseling is an individualized plan and a road map for a successful transition to the civilian sector. Available resources, identification and individual transition plans are made available to attendees.
The ACAP Center offers a variety of transition services that include: automated pre-separation counseling, assistance and training in the job search process, coaching, and a variety of automated job information services. Recently ACAP installed a new automation system called ACAP XXI. ACAP XXI is a self-paced interactive, multimedia computer based training system that provide the capability for clients to directly access the computers for services previously provided through group instruction and/or counseling. For example, the service member will be able to complete his/her pre-separation counseling, which is mandated by public law, using this system.
