Verification of Military Experience and Training (VMET)
The VMET document lists your military experience and training which may have application to employment in the private sector.
The issuance of the DD Form 2586 Verification of Military Experience and Training (VMET) document is sponsored by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Force Management Policy, in cooperation with the military services. The VMET document is an "all-services" integrated form which displays demographic, training, and experience information that is retrieved from various automated sources.
The VMET document lists your military experience and training which may have application to employment in the private sector. Use the document as a tool to prepare resumes and job applications, in concert with evaluation reports, training certificates, awards, transcripts, and other pertinent documents.
Your VMET is not an official transcript for purposes of granting college credit, but it can be used to support your having met training and/or course requirements to qualify for civilian occupations, certificates, licenses, or programs of study.
Credit recommendations from the American Council of Education (ACE) for occupations and/or courses are listed when they are available; academic institutions determine which credits are applicable to a program of study.
All data available in the VMET database maintained by the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) is provided as of the 'Date of Information' (Item 7 on the VMET document).
