AFRS creates a public page for Line Officer Join Paths> Aerial Education and Training Command> Item Display

SHARED BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, TEXAS – Trying to educate the masses about ways to become a US Air Force or Space Force officer can be challenging as sites often require the use of a shared access card or sometimes are inappropriate for the information.

The Air Force Recruiting Service has come up with a solution to have the information applicants need always at hand. Specialists from the AFRS Line Officer Accession Program and the Public Affairs Bureau have teamed up to create a public page on the AFRS website that will serve as a one-stop shop for information on how to join Line Officers.

“The new public website has a lot of pertinent information for Officer Training School (OTS) applicants interested in the USAF and USSF,” said Linda Wallace, manager of the AFRS line officer membership program. “The most notable features are the schedule for the board, the announcement of the OTS program in active duty, updates / announcements for the board, and a new slide show that simplifies the basic instructions for the application.”

Previously, the information was posted on the Air Force portal, but there were restrictions.

“The AFRS portal page has been a great resource for our programs. However, the site was not open to everyone, ”Wallace said. “Only those on AFNET (Air Force Network) with a CAC could access the portal page, which really limited the scope of our efforts to keep all applicants informed. The new public website can be accessed by anyone from anywhere in the world. It’s really a one-stop shop for all questions related to joining active duty line officers – and it also provides some good information for civilian applicants. “

Wallace and her team have had a great experience connecting and working with AFRS Public Affairs.

“Working with PA to get this website up and running has been very rewarding as it has given our team the opportunity to build new relationships and meet those we don’t work with regularly,” said Wallace. “The public affairs specialists are fun to work with and they are great at what they do. Together our offices created this amazing resource that we hope will benefit applicants and ease the mystery of the application process. “

For the public affairs team, this is an opportunity to streamline a process and provide an accessible website for those interested in serving on or off the network.

“This publicly accessible site for our officer candidates, whether current Airmen or civilians, makes it convenient for those seeking commission, the US Air Force,” said Leslie Brown, chief of AFRS Public Affairs. “We want prospects to have all the information they need in one place. It gives everyone, regardless of their background, equal access to apply. “

Ultimately, Wallace and her team want to serve their customers.

“We’re focusing on the customer experience and improving our procedures to streamline the application process,” said Wallace. “We fully understand that our aim is to make people’s dreams come true, and we take this responsibility very seriously.”

According to Wallace, this is one of many projects the Line Officer Accessions team has been working on recently to improve processes and provide easy access to information.

“I would like to thank the entire Line Officer Accessions team for the hard work it took to bring these special projects to life,” said Wallace. “This new public website is just the latest in a long line of collaborative efforts to bring about positive change in our programs. Over the years there have been many long meetings and late nights devoted to our process improvement efforts. “
