Military training

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.
