Military Service Members
Transition Program (MSMTP)
Designed with the needs and
interests of the military person and their spouse in mind, based in
Maryland, C4SEM's Military Service Members Transition Program (MSMTP) provides
full spectrum of academic and industry driven vocational /certificate
education and training coupled with employment services worldwide to reduce
post service unemployment.
In addition, the Center for
Security and Emergency Management will grant C4SEM Certification Program
scholarships to 12 of our country’s Wounded Warriors. Scholarships will be
awarded on the basis of financial need and performance and will focus on
heroes who are seeking advancement or new skills.
“We understand the past year has been extremely difficult for so many
families,” says Dr. Rastakhiz, C4SEM Chairman, Board of Directors. In
keeping with our fallen heroes C4SEM will initiate an annual scholarship in
support of our troops and for the advancement of those professionals working
in four primary disciplines: counter terrorism, criminal justice, emergency
management and security. The scholarship will include the cost of training,
course materials and the certification exam. Upon completion of the
certification program, the individuals will receive assistance from the
Office of Placement Services in determining next steps and establishing a
detailed action plan for job placement.
“Many of our heroes who devoted their time and made sacrifices to preserve
our constitutional form of government deserve much more. It is the duty of
every American to support our troops, especially those who need us the most.
These young men and women are the best of the bests and the every day
sacrifices made by these individuals is the kind of selflessness our nation
was built upon.”
Our objective is clear: to create a workforce for the field of
counter terrorism, criminal justice, emergency management and security by
teaching those with proven track records, foundation and the knowledge required to be
Subject Matter Experts (SMEs).

1. Accelerated Learning Curve: Veterans have the proven
ability to learn new skills and concepts. In addition, they can
enter your workforce with identifiable and transferable skills,
proven in real world situations. This background can enhance
your organization’s productivity.
2. Leadership: The military trains people to lead by example
as well as through direction, delegation, motivation and
inspiration. Veterans understand the practical ways to manage
behaviors for results, even in the most trying circumstances.
They also know the dynamics of leadership as part of both
hierarchical and peer structures.
3. Teamwork: Veterans understand how genuine teamwork grows
out of a responsibility to one’s colleagues. Military duties
involve a blend of individual and group productivity. They also
necessitate a perception of how groups of all sizes relate to
each other and an overarching objective.
4. Diversity and Inclusion in Action: Veterans have learned
to work side by side with individuals regardless of diverse
race, gender, geographic origin, ethnic background, religion and
economic status as well as mental, physical and attitudinal
capabilities. They have the sensitivity to cooperate with many
different types of individuals.
5. Efficient performance under pressure: Veterans understand
the rigors of tight schedules and limited resources. They have
developed the capacity to know how to accomplish priorities on
time, in spite of tremendous stress. They know the critical
importance of staying with a task until it is done right.
6. Respect for procedures: Veterans have gained a unique
perspective on the value of accountability. They can grasp their
place within an organizational framework, becoming responsible
for subordinates’ actions to higher supervisory levels. They
know how policies and procedures enable an organization to
7. Technology and globalization: Because of their
experiences in the service, veterans are usually aware of
international and technical trends pertinent to business and
industry. They can bring the kind of global outlook and
technological savvy that all enterprises of any size need to
8. Integrity: Veterans know what it means to do “an honest
day’s work.” Prospective employers can take advantage of a track
record of integrity, often including security clearances. This
integrity translates into qualities of sincerity and
9. Conscious of health and safety standards: Thanks to
extensive training, veterans are aware of health and safety
protocols both for themselves and the welfare of others.
Individually, they represent a drug-free workforce that is
cognizant of maintaining personal health and fitness. On a
company level, their awareness and conscientiousness translate
into protection of employees, property and materials.
10. Triumph over adversity: In addition to dealing positively
with the typical issues of personal maturity, veterans have
frequently triumphed over great adversity. They likely have
proven their mettle in mission critical situations demanding
endurance, stamina and flexibility. They may have overcome
personal disabilities through strengths and determination.
