6/23/2012 – JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) — If you are someone who demonstrates Air Force standards, has the ability to teach, and wants to have a positive impact on the Air Force for years to come, then you may be a perfect match for Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps instructor duty.
Eligible first lieutenants, captains and majors interested in teaching tomorrow’s leaders must indicate that interest on their statement of intent, via the Airman Development Plan. Fully-coordinated, approved application packages are due to Air Education and Training Command by Aug. 10, said Master Sgt. Curtis Reese, the AFPC Special Utilization Officer Assignments superintendent.
“Instructor impact is not just at the cadet level, but those cadets’ future supervisors, peers and subordinates as well,” he said. “It goes without saying that we need top-notch leaders and mentors to volunteer for this special duty.”
Only line of the Air Force officers are eligible, Reese said, and lieutenants must have at least a year in grade and three years of commissioned service. All applicants must have four years on station by June 2013, or be in a mandatory move status during summer 2013 or have a January-May 2013 date eligible for return from overseas. Applicants must also have superior performance records and some universities require a master’s degree, so applicants should note that before listing their duty preferences.
Before applicants can submit their packages to AETC, they must be released from their career field, Reese said. AFPC will notify each applicant of their release status by mid-July.
