Just doing some forward thinking, is it realistic to assume that a CCT after discharge would be able to become a civilian Air Traffic Controller with little training? My understanding is that a graduated CCT already possess' a FAA certification is this retained after discharge? Or would new training by the FAA be required? Sorry if I am mistaken with any of the above information, just trying to plot possible courses of action.
Thanks

I pushed this question directly to the source that knows the accurate answer. However last time this question was asked and answered (a few years ago and if I recollect accurately) there would be some additional training and certs required.

If I "recall correctly" civilian Air Traffic Control is somewhat certification compartmentalized as there is Tower, Approach Control, Departure Control, Airways Control and probably a few other airspace, runway, ground control (taxi way and parking operations) I'm completely ignorant of.

If a CCT wanted to go to Civilian ATC they would need more certs than what they get in tech school and follow up training. Not to mention you are talking about super active guys going from running around shooting things and dropping bombs to sitting behind a computer screen for 8 hours controlling aircraft...its not the same career, at all.
