What Is the Army Career Skills Program (CSP)?

The Army Career Skills Program, better known as CSP, is a Department of Defense skill bridge program that partners with corporate hiring initiatives. This program aids transitioning service members and veterans by allowing them to participate in civilian training, credentialing, apprenticeship, and internship programs starting up to six months before separation from the military service. The CSP allows businesses to gain early access to highly skilled service members as prospective employees. These skill bridge programs are at no cost to the service member.
