REDWHITEandCOOL, is a nationally recognized Career Skills Program (CSP) approved by the Department of Defense and the United States Skill Bridge Program. The program is a 4‐week initiative that will recruit, train, and hire transitioning military personnel on military installations around the continental United States and overseas. At the end of the training, cohort participants will be administered the ANSI Certified CARO exam. (ANSI is the American National Standards Institute and certifies the CARO – Certified Assistant Refrigeration Operator exam to be the accepted industry standard.)
RETA-TI is proud to announce that the first three FOUNDING sponsors of the REDWHITEandCOOL program are SMITHFIELD FOODS, TYSON FOODS and WAGNER-MEINERT, LLC. Smithfield Foods has committed to sponsoring the first cohort of this program and has been instrumental in helping to shape the program. They feel that partnering with RETA-TI is a natural fit to bring veterans into skilled-trade jobs within their company and within our industry.
