Yes sometimes they redesignate you, sometimes they give youa choice, sometimes you're sent home. Depends on their needs at the time.

You need an ID card to access those benefits. Your DD214 only gets you that card if you qualify. Depending on your separation code you only have those benefits for a certain amount of time after the date you separate. Call your local DEERS if you have questions about it.

Great advice! Also, take'em all for free if you are eligible. ATP, Dispatcher, AGI, FOI, IGI, CFI, etc.

Iím not sure if youíre aware (or what Iím missing in your situation), but in order to be able to take the ATP/ATM written test nowadays, you have to meet CFR61.156, which requires that you have a graduation certificate from an ATP-CTP class. Most ATP-CTP facilities have a written test center on-site which is included in the course costs along with the Shepard Air study guide. So, I donít know why anyone would be concerned about written costs if it is in the ďpackageĒ deal.

Only reason why those who are (military) eligible would want to take the written test at a military testing facility is because that person wanted additional time to study the Shepard guide after their ATP-CTP class and had access to a military base. Usually youíre scheduled for the written the day after the course graduation at the ATP-CTP center.

Iím an AD military dependant, contacted my local military testing facility, and was informed that I qualified based on dependant status to take the written there. I wouldíve had to present the ATP-CTP graduation certificate as well.
Although thatís not your specific status, hope it helps those out there

I did receive an official DD214 for the month I was in. Can I still take the FAA written test at a military facility? I donít consider myself a veteran or ever really ďin the militaryĒ, but the test would be free rather than having to spend $165 at a civilian facility.
