Attention Air Force, Army, Navy, and Marine aviators! The SAF/MRR Continuum of Service (CoS) program and the USAF/A3-O have completed an initiative amending AFI 11-402 to use the Aeronautical Review Board (ARB) process to screen intra/inter-Service candidates to fill Total Force rated officer vacancies.
If a vacant rated officer position exists and an applicant is deemed qualified by the ARB, the board will recommend the award of the equivalent Air Force Aeronautical rating. This includes helicopter pilots and medical officers. This was initiated because the Air Force is experiencing nearly a 50% shortfall of Air Liaison and Air Operations Center Officers.
Airmen can access the CoS Tracking Tool (CoSTT) (access requires a .mil address and CAC card) and start fostering a lifetime of service to the nation and the Air Force. Once on the CoSTT, Airmen can submit a barrier to service issue, track its progress and view other issues in a variety of categories.
To better explain CoS, check out this video – it helps describe exactly what CoS is and how it can help you.
CoS had six new initiatives submitted and under review between SAF/MR and appropriate offices in May— yours might be the next! Using a .mil address and your CAC Card, visit: https://www.safmr.hq.af.mil.
Thanks to SAF/MR – Manpower and Reserve Affairs for sending this post.
