Civilians able to get developmental education details in AFPC webcasts

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Civilian Airmen can learn about available civilian developmental education opportunities during webcasts scheduled through April.

The 2017 Civilian Developmental Education and Civilian Strategic Leadership Program call for nominations opened March 1 and applications must be in to Air Force Personnel Center by May 1. The webcasts support the Air Force’s commitment to developing Airmen through a career-long continuum, said Virginia Banda, the civilian developmental education program manager.

Details on all CDE opportunities are available on myPers' Civilian Employee page. Select the quick link in the Announcement for Airmen section. Information is useful for both employees and supervisors, officials said.

"The Air Force deliberately develops all Airmen to ensure they are able to fully contribute to the mission as well as achieve career goals," she said. "These webcasts will help all civilian Airmen understand their options and enable them to plan their careers."

The webcasts are open to any interested civilian, will typically run two hours and will be held on the following dates and times:

- March 31: 1:30 p.m. CDT
- April 5: 8:30 a.m. CDT; and 1:30 p.m. CDT
- April 7: 8:30 a.m. CDT; and 1:30 p.m. CDT

"We encourage supervisors to sit in on a webcast as well, so that they are able to assist and support their employees' development plans," Banda said.

Subject matter experts will be online to provide real-time answers to questions during the webcasts. The slides will be posted to the myPers DCS webcast site prior to the first session.

To join a webcast, go to DCS using https://conference.apps.mil/webconf/CDEDCS. Registered users should enter their user names and passwords. Non-registered Airmen can log in as guests and select their email certificate. Please provide their full names and bases.

Participants should check access by logging in up to 30 minutes before the webcast begins. Technical issues may prevent people from logging in after the webcast begins.

"Logging in promptly will help ensure you are able to access the webcast and get the most out of the experience," Banda said.

Questions and answers gathered during the webcasts will be posted on myPers after each briefing.

For more information about Air Force personnel programs go to the myPers website. Individuals who do not have a myPers account can request one by following the instructions on the Air Force Retirees Services website.
