RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — Air Force civilians interested in civilian developmental education opportunities during academic year 2012 have until May 1 to submit completed application packages to the Air Force Personnel Center force development branch.

Civilians must be nominated for CDE by their local leaders and endorsed by their chain of command. In addition, application packages must include the CDE checklist, completed AF Form 4059, a maximum three-page resume, and other documents, depending on the program. A complete list of application requirements is available on the Air Force personnel services website.

In addition, the site has a resume template, a nomination checklist, and other required documents. CDE information and procedures are also provided, so interested members will be able to quickly, efficiently complete their applications.

Coordination, however, may take time, so those interested should not wait, said Loretta Brown, the AFPC civilian leadership development chief.

“There are opportunities for employees at every pay and leadership level, from Civilian Acculturation and Leadership Training to Air War College,” Brown said.

For information about CDE or other personnel issues, visit the Air Force personnel services website and do a keyword search for “CDE” or call the Total Force Service Center at 800-525-0102.
