Army Civilian Aquired Skills Program (ACASP)

The ACASP attracts and uses persons with civilian-acquired skills required by the Army. Persons qualified for the ACASP may be given an advance in grade upon enlistment. They may be entitled to accelerated promotion based on the skill level held and demonstrated duty performance. The program is available for active duty and reserve enlistments.

The ACASP is available to qualified men and women with or without Prior Service. Persons with skills acquired through military service will not be enlisted under this program. Skills must be acquired through civilian education and experience. Members of the ARNG or USAR who were awarded an MOS based upon Civilian Acquired Skills and are applying for enlistment into the Regular Army will be authorized to enlist under this program provided they are otherwise qualified and are not entitled to a higher enlistment grade by other provisions the recruiting regulation. All prior service applicants who have had a break in service of five or more years and are qualified for enlistment may enlist for ACASP regardless of former MOS. These applicants must meet all requirements to include basic eligibility.

Applicants must:

a. Meet basic eligibility criteria for enlistment, as well as skill training and work experience as shown in the links below. When a person has unusual training or experience relevant to an MOS, requests for determination of equivalency may be submitted for consideration to HWDA (DAPEMPA).

b. Have had either training or experience in their civilian-acquired skill within 24 months of enlisting.

c. Exceptions for applicants qualified for ACASP but who do not meet or possess applicable MOS ASVAB score and no prerequisite MOS training is required may request through appropriate chain of command an exception to policy. Approval is required from HQDA (DAPE-MPA).
