AF releases advanced degree and career broadening results

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- An Air Force selection board has chosen 334 officers for advanced academic degree and career broadening opportunities.

As part of the force development construct, Advanced Academic Degree (AAD) and Special Experience Exchange Duty (SPEED) programs provide targeted developmental education and broadening developmental assignments for officers in eligible career fields.

“This is a highly competitive selection process,” said Capt. Melanie Huffman, an Air Force Personnel Center assignments officer. “Selection for one of these developmental education slots is an important step in an officer’s career.”

According to Huffman, development team special program selections are some of the earliest opportunities for officers to begin building a complementary skillset through advanced academic degree or career broadening programs.

“These two programs help us deliberately develop Airmen by focusing on the right education, training and experience at the right time in their careers,” Huffman said.

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.

Candidate lists have posted to myPers. To view the list, select “Active Duty Officer” from the dropdown menu and search “AAD” or “SPEED.”
