Navy COOL provides active duty and reserve Sailors, whether forward deployed, underway or ashore, a way to map their Navy education, training, experience and competencies to civilian credentials and occupations. Navy COOL deploys representatives to specific geographic locations to brief their Navy programs to area Sailors at no cost to the hosting command. These briefs are an opportunity to share the importance of the value of certification and licensure, and this information can enhance career development boards (CDBs) and advancements. With 1,663 funded credentialing opportunities available, every enlisted Sailor has at least one credential he or she can earn. More than 1,500 credentialing opportunities are mapped to officer designators. For more information about Navy COOL, visit the Navy COOL website or call (850) 452-6683.
