Air Force selects 335 officers for advanced degrees, career broadening

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- The Air Force has selected 335 officers to participate in advanced academic degree and career-broadening opportunities in 2018 as part of the force development construct.  

Advanced Academic Degree and Special Experience Exchange Duty programs provide targeted developmental education and broadening developmental assignments for officers in eligible career fields, according to Maj. Melanie Huffman, Air Force’s Personnel Center assignments officer. 

“The Air Force is committed to developing exceptional leaders to lead the world’s most powerful teams while maintaining the character and integrity of the Air Force,” Huffman said. “The demand for what American Airmen bring to the fight will only increase, so we leverage development opportunities that employ creative concepts across the service.” 

These career-broadening opportunities are available through AAD programs such as the Air Force Institute of Technology, AFIT Faculty pipeline, U.S. Air Force Academy Faculty pipeline and National Reconnaissance Office.
 
SPEED programs include the Acquisition and Intelligence Experience Exchange Tour, Acquisition and Logistics Experience Exchange Tour, Comptroller Operation Logistics Tour, Education with Industry, U.S. Marine Corps Expeditionary Warfare School and more. 

The candidate list has posted to myPers. To view the list, select “Active Duty Officer” from the dropdown menu and search “AAD” or “SPEED.” Prior to posting the list on myPers, AFPC provided senior raters with advanced knowledge of their officers’ selection to allow notification through the chain of command.
