(AFNS) — (EDITOR’S NOTE: The officer application suspense has been extended to April 12.) — Eligible active duty officers and civilians are now able to apply for intermediate and senior developmental education opportunities, Air Force Personnel Center officials announced.

Officer applications are due to AFPC April 12, and civilian nominations are due May 1, said George McKey, AFPC officer developmental education branch.

A variety of developmental opportunities exist for those interested in continued growth and leadership, he said.

Intermediate programs include the Air Command and Staff College, Air Force Institute of Technology, international services program opportunities and a variety of fellowship and internship programs. Senior programs include Air Force and defense fellowships, Army War College, Air Command and Staff College with an Air War College follow-on, international services senior development program opportunities, and more.

Requirements and eligibility vary depending on the program, and submission requirements differ for officers and civilians, so applicants should carefully review the program guide before preparing application documents.

Officer Process
Officers apply for developmental education using the AFPC secure web-based 3849 form, which is accessible via the Air Force Portal or the myPers website. Eligible officers and their senior raters will have access to the form through April 4.

“If you haven’t updated your AFPC secure account within the last 120 days, you’ll need to re-establish the password and register your common access card to be able to complete your 3849,” McKey said. “Don’t wait to take care of that or you may find yourself unable to accomplish the form.”

Officers selected for IDE or SDE will incur a three-year active duty service commitment, and officers who fail to successfully complete their program will incur a two-year ADSC.

All applications must be complete, including senior rater nomination, by April 5 when the 3849 access window closes.

Civilian Process
The Civilian Developmental Education Board will convene in September to consider high-potential employees for education opportunities that best suit their career goals and the needs of the Air Force, said Loretta Brown, AFPC Leadership Development chief.

“In spite of budget cuts and the impending furlough, the Air Force has a mission to accomplish and needs capable leaders,” Brown said “The Air Force will continue to develop current and future leaders to expand their knowledge and increase their understanding of the role of air, space and cyberspace power. Approximately 700 civilians between GS-07 and GS-15 (and equivalent grade) will be selected for schools and programs that range from Squadron Officer School to Air War College. Applicants must be nominated by local leadership and endorsed by their chain of command, said Brown.

Required documents and full completion instructions are available on the myPers force development page, as well as a complete list of opportunities and criteria.

Also, the Civilian Strategic Leadership Program will accept applications from GS-14 and 15 employees willing to accept multifaceted challenges designed to prepare them for increased responsibility in functional and enterprise-wide positions, Brown said. Prospective nominees have until May 1 to apply. For more information and application instructions, go to myPers and enter “CSLP” in the search window.
