Total force development services now in a single-point center

WASHINGTON (AFNS) -- The Air Force has consolidated all total force development services and resources to a single-point center. All Airmen (active duty, Reserve, Guard and civilian) will now be able to fully utilize all force development resources through the virtual force development center.

The online center acts as a single-point depot that links Airmen to numerous professional force development resources. It is a comprehensive portal for self-paced training, education and other force development tools.

“All these resources are designed to professionally develop Airmen in their self-development journey,” said Barry Waite, the chief of Air Force Workforce Development Division at the U.S. Air Force Personnel Professional Development School. “The virtual center has the tools to shrink proficiency gaps and maximizes our total force’s skills.”

The virtual force development center provides access to professional resources generated from both the Air Force and the private sector which are easily transferable to the workplace. The virtual center connects members to information on foundational learning, professional education, Air Force e-Learning and other resources to include seeking a mentor.

“Developmental opportunities to broaden and strengthen an individual’s foundation are essential for the future of our workforce,” Waite added.

The virtual center, through AF e-Learning, also offers hundreds of no-cost self-paced courses, books, audiobooks, videos, simulations, challenges, summaries, case studies, exercises, learning tracks, and live events to support Airmen’s continual development.

“The fundamental goal of force development is to provide Air Force members the skills, knowledge and abilities to excel in their organizations. I encourage all of us across the total force to check out the virtual center. Challenge yourself and learn something new every day,” said Russell Frasz, the director of Force Development at Headquarters Air Force.

The virtual force development center is located on the Air Force portal site under the career and training tab.
