WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Transition Goals, Plans, Success (Transition GPS) virtual curriculum is now available on the Joint Knowledge Online (JKO) portal.

The JKO portal provides joint training resources including training courses, seminars, video library, and communities of interest. Also training on JKO is tracked, reported and can be managed for individual service member's unique training requirements.

"Family members unable to attend the classroom-based training now have access to Transition GPS virtually," said Shauna Turner, Commander Navy Installations Command's Headquarters, Work and Family Life Program manager. "Locations without internet access will receive a Transition GPS Virtual Curriculum DVD that can be used to meet VOW compliance."

The Transition GPS virtual curriculum is not intended to replace classroom-based instruction, but is for Sailors who are on remote duty and/or are located farther than 50 miles from any military installation that offers Transition GPS Workshops.

"The JKO Transition GPS virtual curriculum can be accessed by service members whenever needed from anywhere in the world," said Turner. "As always the FFSC classroom instruction is the preferred method."

Sailors located in isolated or geographically separated location, and those with short fused separations the virtual curriculum is there for them on the JKO website. Deployed members should only use the virtual curriculum when their separation is within 60 days of return to homeport and no Transition GPS workshop is available.
