Bill would have army training count in civilian world

Anyone who finishes an army course that has applications in the civilian world will be able to get a certification or credit towards one, if a bill by MK Anat Berko (Likud) becomes law.

“My bill can help give recently-discharged soldiers, who carried the country on their shoulders, a profession and direct thousands of trained young people into the market,” Berko said.

The proposal, which has support from Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon and Economy Minister Arye Deri, is meant to help veterans enter the workforce soon after their army service, allowing them to make a living at a younger age, and to help the market by bringing in workers who do not need additional training.
