A total of 288 men and women from across the Air Force have earned an opportunity to become Air Force leaders following their selection for an officer's commission, officials announced today.

Air Force Recruiting Service officials considered 909 active duty Air Force enlisted applications as part of the Total Force Officer Training school selection board 18OT02 and 18OTCAD. With the boards’ selection rate of 33 percent, 288 enlisted members were selected to trade their stripes for gold bars as second lieutenants and serve as Air Force officers.

As part of the selection process, board members review both objective and subjective factors.

Objectively, the board considers each applicant's academic discipline, grade point average and Air Force Officer Qualifying Test scores.

Subjectively, board members evaluate work experience, accomplishments, adaptability, character, leadership ability and potential for future growth, performance reports, and commanders' recommendations.

Three Air Force colonels review every application. The selection process is similar to an Air Force officer promotion board. No single factor leads to an individual's selection or non-selection, according to TFOT selection officials.

Candidates selected can expect to attend TFOT at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, in fiscal year 2019.

For more information concerning TFOT and the application process, active-duty members should visit the Total Force Officer Training website on the Air Force Portal; civilians should contact their nearest Air Force recruiter.
