Transition Readiness Seminar

The Transition Readiness Seminar (TRS) requirements are designed to support and equip service members and their families with resources that are vital for a successful transition. The TRS requirements consist of Individualized Initial Counseling (IC), Pre-Separation Counseling, TRS workshops, Capstone Review and Commander’s Verification.

The TRS requirements ensure Marines are prepared for their transition from military to civilian life by providing them and their families the tools to pursue Department of Defense (DoD) directed Career Readiness Standards (CRS).

Required Steps for Attending TRS or Pre-Retirement Seminar:

Step 1: Whether Officer or Enlisted, retiring or separating, contact the Unit Transition Coordinator (UTC) within your respective unit and get a pre-work checklist.

Step 2: Complete all pre-work and then schedule 365 Initial Counseling (IC).

Step 3: Bring all pre-work to your 365 IC and after completion of 365 (IC), P&PD staff will schedule you for the Pre-separation Counseling Brief. 

Step 4:  After completion of the Pre-separation Counseling brief, please return to your respective UTC to be scheduled for TRS/Pre-retirement.

Step 5: Showtime for TRS and Pre-Retirement on Monday is 0715 in Business Casual.

Step 6:  Schedule Capstone Review following the completion of TRS. Capstone Review must be completed no less than 120 days from EAS.
