    A month or two, you will go to Newcomer's Orientation on the base. After that you will attend UTAs (drill weekend) until you have school dates BUT make sure to do your PT Test ASAP so they can get you into all the schools you need.

    did you get smtg like that ?

    They are electronic but you can print them out. I work for the government so they automatically updated my status but you comissoning paperwork should work.

    Air Force email approval depends on security clearance?
    how long that takes ?
  13. by   Vona86
    You get an AF email regardless...You should know it when you get computer access. Security Clearance's can take up to a year.
