ROTC instructor vacancies available

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- Opportunities are available for qualified officers to fill nearly 100 projected Air Force ROTC detachment instructor vacancies throughout the nation next summer, Air Force officials announced.

Eligible officers include line officers with the rank of first lieutenant, captain or major. First lieutenants must have one-year time in grade by Oct. 31 and a total of three years of commissioned service. Rated officers and Air National Guard and Reserve officers are not eligible to apply.

Air Force Personnel Center assignment teams will review Airmen Developmental Plans to determine the release of eligible officers. Officers desiring consideration for AFROTC detachment instructor opportunities must complete their ADP by July 9, which can be found at

Once AFPC notifies the officer, they are released to compete for a vacancy. The officer should submit an application package that includes: a cover letter listing detachment preferences and any special needs for dependents; the officer's last five performance reports; copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts; a fitness standard letter; and an official photo. Applications will be due to the Air Education and Training Command by Aug. 13.

A complete list of projected vacancies, eligibility requirements and application instructions are available on the special duty assignments (81T) Web page on the AFPC personnel services website at
