You may already have some significant training, but you may want to broaden your skills with a degree in order to prepare for a civilian career . Consider the following information.
Civilian Drafting Careers
A civilian drafting position can include preparing drawings that provide visual guidelines for the production and construction of different projects. You can be called on to sketch out technical details of these structures, specify the dimensions involved, the materials to be used, and the exact processes and procedures the construction staff must follow. You may already have many of these skills, but you might also need to bone up on your knowledge of engineering and manufacturing theory and standards in order to meet industry expectations.

From the Military to the Civilian Workforce

You can complete a degree program in drafting through a college or technical institute in your area. Many of the courses you need for this degree can also be taken online at your convenience.

Tuition Benefits and Promotion Points
You can get a head start on your civilian career by enrolling in a degree program in drafting and using your military tuition benefits to pay for it. You also earn promotion points so why wait. Prepare for the rest of your life by starting today.
