JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas — Civilian Airmen have until May 1 to submit applications for civilian developmental education programs to the Air Force Personnel Center.

“Educational opportunities, in conjunction with experience and training, are a key component of the continuum of learning designed to deliberately develop Air Force leaders,” said Virginia Banda, AFPC CDE program manager. “CDE programs help provide the knowledge and skills the civilian workforce needs to anticipate and successfully meet the unique challenges present across the range of military operations.”

There are approximately 25 CDE programs offered each year. They range from basic developmental education to intermediate development education and senior developmental education. In addition to applications for BDE, IDE and SDE applications for the civilian strategic leadership program are also accepted during the CDE call for nominations.

Requirements and eligibility vary depending on the program, as do submission requirements, so applicants should carefully review force development information available on the myPers website before preparing application documents.

To see detailed descriptions of each of the CDE programs go to the myPers website. Select the “Civilian Employee” link. Under the “Learn More About” menu, scroll down to the “Force Development,” section.
