  1. Introduction/Premise
    1. Each branch of the military has a unique set of specialty codes that define a member’s specific job, or specialty, within their branch of service.
    2. These specialty codes can represent their primary job in the military, training to augment their specialty, or education and training that extends beyond their specialty.
    3. CAP has tools in place to record some training, such as leadership and management courses however much specialized training and experience goes unrecognized.
  2. Benefits
