More About Army CSP Eligibility

The Army’s Career Skills Programs (CSPs) prepare soldiers for civilian employment through first-class apprenticeships, on-the-job training, job shadowing, internships and employment skills training. Managed by HQ IMCOM, CSPs prepare soldiers for civilian employment at the end of their military service.

Soldiers can participate in an Army CSP up to 180 days prior to being discharged and after completion of the mandatory 5-day SFL-TAP workshop. The use of permissive temporary duty (PTDY) to attend a CSP more than 50 miles away from the soldier’s duty station may be granted at the Commander’s discretion. PTDY authority requires Commanders to establish command and control procedures and to ensure accountability throughout the CSP. Soldiers must also be counseled on their financial responsibilities during PTDY status to attend an approved CSP for more than 50 miles from their duty station.
