The Transition Employment Assistance for Military Spouses (TEAMS) Program is a series of DOL TAP workshops targeted at helping all Military Spouses plan and prepare for their job search.
Training Classes for 2020
There are 20 classes scheduled during the week of October 26, 2020, each of which includes a 30-minute focus discussion group and survey at the end of the class. We will use this feedback to refine the curricula and develop additional modules to address the employment needs of transitioning military spouses.
The courses are stand-alone modules developed to provide specific information in a condensed manner. You can take all of the courses or only one. We recommend the initial four courses be taken in the order listed here. However, the information is valuable in whatever order you select.
All four modules will be available multiple times throughout the week to allow for those in every time zone throughout the world an opportunity to attend. Please note that all times listed are for the Eastern time zone, to allow for quick conversion to the time zone where you live.
Participation is capped at 30 registrants for each of these pilot classes. If your first request for a class is full, please choose an alternate time that works for your schedule. Register by clicking the date below and completing the linked form.
