Air Force releases 2018 officer developmental education selection results

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- The Air Force has selected more than 800 active-duty officers for intermediate and senior developmental education during the 2018 Developmental Education Designation Board held at the Air Force’s Personnel Center, Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph.

The board, which met Sept. 25, designated 806 line and 50 non-line officers to attend in-residence DE during the 2019-2020 academic year.

“Developmental opportunities are designed to educate and professionally broaden individual officers into strategic leaders who can provide innovative solutions to the future complex challenges facing the Air Force,” said Kris Hunter, deputy chief of officer developmental education at the AFPC.

Officers selected for DE will attend intermediate and senior-level development programs such as Air Command and Staff College, Air War College, National War College and more.

New this year is the IDE and SDE Program Exchange, which affords line officers selected as primaries an opportunity to exchange certain programs with other officers using an online matching tool within MyVECTOR. AFPC is the final approval authority for all exchange matches, which are based on officer preference, program availability, requirements and development team chairperson approval. Officers should refer to the 2018 Officer Developmental Education Guide on myPers for specific IDE/SDE program eligibility.

“We want to provide our Airmen, their families and commanders added flexibility within the Air Force assignment system,” Hunter said. “The unpredictable landscape we operate in requires agility in our Talent Management processes.”

The IDE/SDE selection list has posted to myPers. 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. Click the Force Development link from the active-duty officer landing page or select the active-duty officer category from the dropdown menu and search “developmental education.”
