Many sailors find that one of the major benefits of joining the Navy is going to school with the help of Navy College. Potential sailors should learn about this important benefit before they consider joining the U.S. Navy.
Online PR News – 04-January-2013 – Alpharetta, GA – Sailors who want to serve their country, get an education and advance their U.S. Navy careers can take advantage of a unique program known as the Navy College Program.
The program gives sailors the opportunity to earn college credit for work experience, off-duty education and, in many cases, simply for completing Navy training. To take advantage of the Navy College program, sailors need to visit a Navy College Office to have their educational goals analyzed, learn how to apply for college credit for Navy training and even earn college credit by taking exams through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).
The Education Services specialists, education technicians and guidance counselors do not work for any specific school and can help sailors work towards a technical or occupational certificate or a college degree.
"The Navy College Program is an excellent way for sailors to further their education while serving in the U.S. Navy. It's one of the biggest benefits of joining the Navy and I think that everyone should take full advantage of it. If you're a sailor who's interested in earning a degree while you're active duty, I urge you to visit your nearest Navy College Office," said Larry Fowler of USNavy.com (www.usnavy.com/ target="_blank" class="highlight_link">http://www.usnavy.com/>).
