SIXGEN Gives Back - DoD Skillbridge
BY ALBERTO RODRIGUEZ
The DoD SkillBridge program is an opportunity for separating service members to gain valuable civilian work experience through specific industry training, apprenticeships, or internships. SIXGEN is a proud Skillbridge provider. Given that many of our employees are veterans, SIXGEN aims to give back to our veteran communities by providing a flexible yet rewarding Skillbridge opportunity.
Any rank, enlisted or officer, may apply for SkillBridge. SkillBridge permits service members to use up to the last 180 days of Service to train and learn with SIXGEN (this does not include transition leave or “final out” days). During the program, service members continue to receive their military compensation and remain covered by their military benefits. It is normally considered a “Permission TDY” opportunity. Authorization for SkillBridge is always mission-dependent and your unit Commander must authorize participation prior to entering into any agreement with interested industry employment partners. The approving authority may vary depending on the branch of service and unit commander structure.
