Average Military Salary
Education administrators manage personnel development programs and determine who needs training, what skills need to be improved, and how a training program can be designed and executed. They direct the development of learning objectives and lesson plans, and they oversee all aspects of instructional programs from designing course content to actual training implementation.
Officers typically enter the Military after they have completed a four-year college degree; enlisted service members can transition to officer positions through a variety of pathways and earn a degree while serving. Education administrators may have a degree in education or management. Job training for education administrators primarily consists of on-the-job learning in various environments, and through receiving advanced civilian/industry certifications and licenses (credentials), which may require additional education, training, or experience. Like other officers, they complete a comprehensive training program covering responsibilities, military structure and etiquette, traditions, and leadership development.
