The purpose of the installation site visit is to review and evaluate military training (courses) and experiences (occupations). The evaluation team analyzes materials, identifies learning outcomes, and recommends postsecondary credit based on its findings.
ACE military reviews bridge the gap between professional military education and postsecondary curricula and provide parallels for the transfer of the service member’s acquired learning to current college curricula. This facilitates access to academic degrees. For military training organizations, the benefits also include:
- Validates quality of training
- Creates an alignment and consistency in documenting training across the services
- Demonstrates commitment to service members
- Reduces Department of Defense tuition assistance funds
The Military Course and Occupations Evaluations: Procedures for Onsite Reviews is a handbook and tool to assist installations and training schoolhouses with the details, processes, and procedures of ACE reviews.
