The US Department of Labor Veterans' Employment and Training Service (DOL VETS) has selected FASTPORT to participate in the Employment Navigator (EN) and Partnership Pilot (ENPP). The pilot was initiated by the DOL to directly assist transitioning service members and their spouses by leveraging services and expertise of many non-governmental organizations. 

The ENPP provides one-on-one career assistance at 18 select military installations worldwide. This support is in addition to the formal DOL Transition Assistance Program (TAP) classroom instruction and with the mission to help transitioning service members and their spouses secure meaningful and lasting post-separation careers.

FASTPORT will use its workforce development expertise and industry networks to connect the transitioning military community to the nation's leading training providers and employers. "FASTPORT is committed to providing the industry with technical assistance and overarching support to accelerate apprenticeship programs. We can help any company in as little as 48 hours," said FASTPORT President Brad Bentley referencing their timeline and work as the White House Apprenticeship Accelerator for the administration's 90 Day Trucking Challenge. 

"VETS is glad to have FASTPORT on our team as one of our many Employment Navigator Partners,'' said Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, James D. Rodriguez, Veterans' Employment and Training Service. "These partnerships are intended to improve transitioning service members and their spouses' employment goals. We are committed to partnering with organizations who are leaders in providing our service members and their spouses with specialized opportunities."

"FASTPORT continues to build employment and training connectivity for diverse candidates seeking better employment opportunities through technology and public and private partnerships," said Dave Harrison, Executive Director - Workforce Development and Government Relations of FASTPORT.
