The Education & Training Section prepares Airmen and their Families to meet academic and career challenges for today and tomorrow. The Air Force uses this program for recruitment and retention as well as readiness.
The Education and Training Section supports long-range Air Force goals for maintaining a high-quality force by providing educational opportunities to enhance professional and personal development of our Airmen. We provide Air Force Tuition Assistance for degree completion ranging from the CCAF Associate degree to graduate degrees. We have 4 academic institutions on base to provide to a variety of degree programs for our personnel. We administer testing services for Airmen enrolled in the non-resident Professional Military Education programs , Career Development Courses, Promotion Testing, non-linguist language testing (DLPT, DLAB), specialized testing (AFOQT, AFCT, etc), and CLEP/DSST tests offered through our on-base DANTES National Test Center. The Education and Training Section also provides academic and vocational counseling, information on funding education (GI Bill and other sources) for military personnel, family members, DOD civilians, retirees, and other beneficiaries.
*Students need to complete their CCAF degree/requirements BEFORE enrolling in a university's AU-ABC Category 1 degree program. This action will ensure schools will be able to review all completed CCAF requirements and able to correctly advise the student on how many credits will remain for a 4-year degree completion.
DoD Installation Needs Assessment
The DoD Installation Needs Assessment process is used to determine such items as staffing requirements, course offerings, size of facilities, funding, or other standards for delivery of educational programs.
Have you ever wondered if you could make a request for an academic program such as "Cybersecurity, etc." to be offered in an On-Base class? Today is your day; please access AFVEC and complete the Needs Assessment Survey. There are only 9 questions to answer. We will only be gathering information Sep - Oct; your feedback is invaluable, so please share your needs with us so we can assess what can be done to better meet your needs and enhance your academic readiness. This only affects classes to be physically conducted on-base.

Post-9/11 GI Bill
VA recently modernized the Post-9/11 GI Bill® application process based on feedback and usability testing sessions held with Veterans and service members. The streamlined experience means it’s never been easier or faster for Veterans and service members to apply for Post-9/11 GI Bill education benefits. Those applying for the first time, using their own benefits, may experience:
* Faster education benefits decisions
* User-intuitive designs and streamlined processes
* Pre-filled applicant information, including service history
* Downloadable decision letters
We hope knowing this will help persuade more Veterans and service members to use the benefits they’ve earned. VA's goal is to continue modernizing the GI Bill experience for students by expanding this enhanced application experience to other populations in the future. With this enhancement, applicants can spend less time filling out an application and more time forging their post-service career path.

Got questions about SkillBridge? Please contact the Offutt Education Center first. When individuals submit requests about the SkillBridge program through the DoD SkillBridge website, they may not be aware those queries are eventually forwarded to the Ed Center at their local base of assignment. We’ve received several referrals from the SkillBridge site in the past few months. Almost all of the requests were from individuals that had not contacted the Ed Center. Please contact us directly by phone at 294-5716, or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We're excited for you and are standing by to assist you as you approach this time of transition from the Armed Forces.

Virtual Force Development Center
The virtual Force Development Center was designed with all Airmen in mind (active duty, reserve, guard, and civilian.) Airmen are encouraged to take time and visit the virtual center to review the free resources available to them and take the extra step towards self-development.
The one-stop site links to numerous professional development resources. The center has consolidated various self-developmental services and information to link members directly to foundational learning, professional education, and many other resources. Airmen also have access to a collection of self-paced courses, books, videos, case studies, learning tracks, executive book summaries and live events that can be accessed from your personal device.
