In September 2016, with input from students, teachers, and counselors, DoD launched the redesigned ASVAB Career Exploration Program (CEP) to inspire more schools and American youth to participate.
ASVAB CEP is a complete career planning resource designed to empower students to explore their career and postsecondary options in the context of their skills and interests. With the redesign of the website and introduction of the web-based aptitude test, the ASVAB CEP introduces students to several pathways they can take to reach their career goals. The holistic approach to career exploration includes information on education, credentialing, licensure, apprenticeships, the military, employment outlook, and salaries for each occupation so that students can truly explore all options available to them.
The ASVAB CEP promotes career literacy through exposure to career-field entry requirements and access to future-oriented planning tools to help students develop an action plan to share with parents and educators. For students who are interested in the military, participation in the ASVAB CEP gives them a usable test score for enlistment and allows them to explore the service that best matches their career goals.
