Transition Readiness Program
The Transition Assistance Management Program (TAMP) has been renamed Transition Readiness Program (TRP). Its purpose is to ensure Marines are prepared for their transition from military to civilian life; by providing Marines and their families with the tools and resources needed to pursue Department of Defense (DoD) directed Career Readiness Standard (CRS).
TRP consist of 3 major components, the first one, Marine for Life Cycle (M4LC) Transition Services which includes the Personal Readiness Seminar (PRS). This seminar is designed to assist with individual assessment, career exploration, educational guidance, and career/employment assistance throughout a Marine’s career. (Mandatory for Marines upon arrival at their first permanent duty station)
The second major component, Career Services and Advising, assists Marines on post-transitional goals to include resume assistance, Accessing Higher Education (AHE), Career Technical Training Track (CTTT), and Boots to Business (B2B).
The third major component, once known as the Transition Assistance Program (TAP) Workshop, is now the Transition Readiness Seminar (TRS). This 5-day mandatory seminar was redesigned to ease the burden of transition by equipping Service members and their families with tools and resources that are vital to a successful transition.
