“DRI International, a nonprofit and provider of BCDR education and certification in more than 100 countries, provides scholarships for free training and career counseling to recently separated or near-term separation military members through its Veterans Outreach Program.
“DRI Foundation President Alan Berman, an Air Force veteran, said former military personnel are sought because they are process-oriented and able to analyze and execute duties under crisis.
“‘They’ve done this,’ he said. ‘They’ve worked under pressure, they’ve worked in crisis and they’re able to keep calm in those kinds of situations, so I think that’s very transferrable.'”
Berman, the DRI Foundation’s work with veterans, and business continuity careers are featured in a recent Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) article.
