SCHOOL INFORMATION

RESIDENT PROGRAM

MISSION STATEMENT: The mission of the Air Force Institute of Technology is to support national defense through graduate and professional education and research programs. Professional continuing education programs are designed to satisfy specific Air Force and Department of Defense (DoD) needs for special and advanced knowledge of immediate applicability.

The School of Systems and Logistics is the "Air Force's professional continuing education technical school of management." The school's mission is to plan, develop, and conduct courses and programs to meet the technical management needs of logistics, systems, and acquisition customers from the Air Force, Department of Defense, and other federal agencies.

The School of Systems and Logistics is located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, approximately ten miles northeast of Dayton, Ohio. Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is also the home of the major research and development activities of the Air Force Material Command.

The School is in Area B, Building 641, Twining Hall. The academic facility, dedicated in 1977, can accommodate approximately 700 students and 150 faculty and staff. Twining Hall is part of a complex of interconnected AFIT buildings which include a Science and Research Center, Kenney Hall, Building 642, and the School of Engineering, Bane Hall, Building 640.

The Professional Continuing Education (PCE) Program provides DoD managers with high quality continuing education in a variety of functional management areas including contract management, acquisition management, quantitative management and logistics management. The mission can be thought of as an accomplishment of three related educational responsibilities: (1) prepares people for career field entry and progression; (2) prevents professional obsolescence; and (3) transfers new knowledge.

The School's professional continuing education program includes 60 courses ranging in length from one to three weeks. Each year nearly 300 resident offerings of these courses are attended by some 6,434 military and civil service students from all elements of the DoD. An additional 26,403 DoD students take advantage of correspondence, on-site, contracted equivalency exam, seminar, and satellite presented courses, as well as workshops offered by the School.

The hallmark of the continuing education programs has always been an emphasis on curriculum quality. The School emphasizes program quality by: (1) limiting class size to encourage a seminar environment; (2) integrating current management concepts and principles with current systems and logistics directives; (3) using simulations, case problems, and other management exercises to demonstrate management applications; (4) employing the latest teaching techniques and aids; and (5) selecting faculty members based on a combination of their academic qualifications, specialized knowledge, and experience in the field.

The School faculty is a unique blend of over 100 officers and civilians who combine practical experience, academic experience, and a strong desire to improve the Air Force and DoD by educating the logistics managers of tomorrow. Approximately ten percent Army and Navy officer positions give the DoD flavor to a student population that includes many non-Air Force students.

AFIT's diversity of operational modes, resources, locations, and faculty permits response to a broad range of Air Force educational requirements. Professional education courses are available in four distinct modes: the resident program, the on-site program (including the enhanced seminar program), the satellite, and the Extension Course Institute program. The resident program consists of approximately 60 separate courses conducted at the AFIT main campus at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The on-site program consists of approximately 25 courses offered at sites worldwide. The enhanced seminar program consists of six courses designed for guided discussion groups at home duty stations. Application procedures for the resident and on-site programs are identical. Application procedures for the resident, on-site, and advanced seminar program are presented in the following pages.

FUNDING: In the resident program: AFIT funds the TDY travel and per diem expenses of programmed Air Force military and civilian students assigned to AF commands and separate operating activities who attend APDP courses. Defense Acquisition University (DAU) courses are funded by The Defense Acquisition University. The Departments of the Army and Navy, the Defense Logistics Agency, all other government agencies, and contractors are responsible for funding their own student TDY expenses -- including expenses of Air Force personnel assigned to them.

In the on-site program: AFIT funds the travel and per diem of faculty members conducting courses which are programmed in AFIT's fiscal year budget. AFIT does not fund expenses of students attending on-site courses.

The seminar program: AFIT pays the postage of all administration and textual material.

MESSING: There are many food outlets on Wright-Patterson AFB to include: Bldg 642 Cafeteria, Bldg 641 Snack Bar, and Hope Hotel. Numerous fast food and other restaurants are available off-base.

TRANSPORTATION: Morning and afternoon bus transportation between billeting and school is provided at no cost. A bus will depart from your designated billeting site each class morning, including the first morning, one hour before scheduled class start time. A bus schedule is posted at your billeting location and on the Student Operations Office bulletin board. AFIT does not reimburse vicinity travel costs of a private vehicle, or the cost of a rental vehicle. Parking is limited and students are encouraged to use the school shuttle bus service. Reasonably priced shuttle bus service, between the Dayton Airport and the base, is available in the baggage claim area of the airport. Cost for this service is approximately $33 for advanced purchase round trip service.

HANDICAPPED PARKING: Special parking places close to the school are located along Tenth Street which is at the north side of the school building.

CLOTHING: Military personnel are expected to meet dress, appearance, and weight standards. Military members must attend class in appropriate uniform. BDUs, flight suits, sandals, jeans, sweatshirts, shorts and "athletic shoes" are not permitted. Tie/tab for military members are mandatory for the period of 1 Nov -31 Mar. AFIT civilian students are expected to dress appropriately for business.

CLASS AND STUDY HOURS: Students are normally scheduled for formal classes from 0800 through 1600 hours each class day. Homework averages two hours per night.

LIBRARY FACILITIES: The AFIT Library, located in Bldg 642 is available to all students.

GRADING POLICIES: All students will receive a "Satisfactory" or "Unsatisfactory." This grade will be forwarded to the student's servicing personnel office. In addition, students completing courses yielding academic credit will be awarded a letter grade.

REGISTRATION AND GRADUATION PROCEDURES: On the first day of class students should report to the School of Systems and Logistics, Building 641, Area B. On the final day of class, time required for transport to quarters, packing, checkout, and journey to the Dayton Airport is 2 to 3 hours. Please arrange return commercial airplane reservations accordingly.

TDY PAYMENTS: Advance per diem or travel payments should be obtained before departing your home station. Consult the Student Operations Office for any financial problems after arrival.

SCHOOL SUPPLY ITEMS: Expendable supplies are not issued to students, but may be purchased at the AFIT Bookstore in the Science and Research Center. Purchasers will be asked to verify their student status by showing their travel orders or DD Form 1556.

SHIPMENT OF MATERIALS: Shipment of course materials to home station is the responsibility of the individual. Official AFIT indicia envelopes or labels are not authorized for this purpose. The school cannot authorize excess baggage on TDY orders.

BASE EXCHANGE FACILITIES: Civilian students billeted in VOQ/VAQ may use the Base Theater and may purchase certain necessary items at the Base Exchange. Students should request from the VOQ/VAQ receptionist a travel order notation certifying billeting in VOQ/VAQ. Off-base billeting does not qualify students to use base facilities.

ADDRESS FOR MAIL: Students residing in the VOQ may use the address below:

QUOTA REQUIREMENTS AND QUOTA ALLOCATIONS FOR RESIDENT AND ONSITE COURSES

Air Force activities use the Air Force Training Management System (AFTMS) screening, scheduling and various procedures needed to submit quota requirements for all AFIT courses in the resident, on-site, and seminar programs. Quota allocations for all courses and programs are released through AFTMS. All subsequent communication regarding requirements and quotas should be sent directly to MAJCOM/SOA for coordination and forwarding, and not directly to AFIT.

Non-Air Force activities receive a requirements call message approximately 1 April. The message requests quota requirements for courses of the fiscal year beginning 18 months later. Requirements are due 1 December (10 months prior to the beginning of the FY) at AFIT/LSA, Student Operations Branch, 2950 P Street, Wright-Patterson AFB OH 45433-7765. Resident requirements should be submitted on DD Form 1631; on-site requirements should be submitted on DD Form 1631-1. Component units of organizations listed below should submit all requirements to the HQ training office listed below. Even when requesting unprogrammed quotas (that is quotas not considered/requested in accordance with (IAW) the above schedule), component units should submit requests directly to their command HQ training office, not directly to AFIT.

The school publishes the FY Class Schedule and allocated quotas via letter in August. Quotas for courses in the Professional Continuing Education Program are processed through the following commands:

ELIGIBILITY FOR RESIDENT AND ONSITE COURSES

Military and civilian personnel must have an academic and/or experience background compatible with the course, and be assigned duty requiring the knowledge and experience they will gain from attendance. Military commanders and civilian supervisors will ensure the best possible selection of qualified personnel to attend courses. In addition, there must be reasonable assurance of a continuing need for the individual's services. Civilian employees must not be serving under a temporary appointment with a specific time limit. Employees with less than one year of current continuous Federal civilian employment are not eligible by law, except in unusual circumstances. Air Foce military personnel attending AFIT professional continuing education courses will incur an additional active duty commitment per table 7 of AFR 36-51, Active Duty Service Commitments. Information on active duty commitments for other Services is available at servicing personnel offices. Eligibility details are presented in the official course description of each course.

WAIVER OF PREREQUISITES: Persons who do not meet course prerequisites but who desire to be admitted to class should attach to their DD Form 1556 a cover letter titled "Request for Waiver of Prerequisites" explaining their particular situation.

SELECTION PROCEDURE: Training offices at Air Force major commands (and DoD equivalent Offices) initially review/approve individual applications. Staff persons of the School of Systems and Logistics perform final review and approval/disapproval. Students are notified.

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES: Students are required to have no major duties beyond applying themselves to their studies. It is expected that students will maintain a high level of scholarship and exhibit attributes associated with a scholar seeking and sharing knowledge and understanding. Each student's progress towards meeting learning objectives is evaluated by participation in discussions, case analyses, interviews, papers, laboratory exercises, special projects, and examinations.

APPLICATION AND ENROLLMENT PROCESURES
(RESIDENT AND ONSITE COURCES)

NON-DAU

Individuals must submit their completed application (DD Form 1556) to their respective personnel/training office, i.e., not directly to AFIT.

The initial review of application (DD Form 1556) and student selection will be performed by MAJCOM/DP or the appropriate training office. Final review and selection approval will be controlled by the AFIT/LS course director.

Individuals who do not meet stated prerequisites must attach a written waiver request to their DD Form 1556. Waivers will be granted on an individual basis.

Between 90 and 45 days before class start date: Completed DD Forms 1556 are sent to AFIT/LSA, 2950 P Street, WPAFB OH 45433-7765, on behalf of nominees filling allocated quotas. Additionally, names of AF personnel are entered in the AF Training Management System (AFTMS).

Forty-five days before class start date: Class close-out. Students are selected and class is filled. Completed DD Forms 1556 (along with AFTMS data for AF personnel) receive final review. If AFIT/LSA has not received DD Forms 1556 (and AFTMS confirmation for AF personnel) indicating the allocated quota(s) will be used, these quotas may be cancelled, revert to AFIT/LSA, and will be used to satisfy a valid educational need of another agency via the space available enrollment program.

The School reserves the right to approve/disapprove a nominee on the basis of information requested on the DD Form 1556. Submitting agencies are promptly notified of the School's decision via dispatch of appropriate copy of DD Form 1556 (and AFTMS input for AF personnel). A letter of reporting instructions is sent directly to the home address of approved nominees. Students who have not received this letter should call the School two weeks prior to class start date. Students who have not received formal notification of acceptance should not report to school.

Authority for issuance of travel orders is indicated by the DD Forms 1556 approved by AFIT (and approval codes entered in AFTMS by AFIT, for AF personnel), or an equivalent written statement from AFIT. The School reserves the right to refuse to admit personnel appearing with unauthorized orders and/or without explicit written advance approval; and the School may cancel its funding of TDY expenses incurred by said students.

After the class close-out, which is 45 days prior to class start date, substitutes for approved students are not automatically authorized. Space Available Enrollments: AFIT/LSA highly recommends use of the "space available" application method if there are requirements for which no issued quotas were received by your component/agency. Submit DD Form 1556 and in Item 20g, enter the number "3" standing for space available. Enter the time frame of desired entry in Item 23. The time frame may be the dates of a specific class, or may be a general calendar period such as "First Half FY 99." If submitting many nominees at one time, we suggest a prioritization of those nominees. We will attempt to meet the time frame indicated and will notify the component/agency training office of nominee approval (via dispatch of the appropriate copy of the form) as well as sending reporting instructions to the nominee.

DAU

Prospective personnel must submit a completed application (DD Form 1556) to their respective personnel/training office -- i.e., not directly to AFIT. DD Form 1556 will flow to appropriate training agency (i.e., Army - Civilian Personnel Office, Navy - Navy Career Management Center, AF - Air Force Personnel Management Center) who has control of that service's quotas. Agencies using the allocated quotas are required to register students into the Army Training Requirements Resources System (ATRRS) no later than 45 calendar days prior to the class start date to ensure that the student has sufficient time to make necessary arrangements for attending class. This also allows adequate time for AFIT to mail out Welcome Letters and case studies when applicable, and make billeting reservations.

Authority for issuance of travel orders and funding information will be provided to selected students by their perspective agency. Space Available Enrollments: Prospective personnel wishing to attend a DAU course on a space available basis should submit their DD Form 1556 to be placed in a "wait" status in ATRRS. ATRRS will automatically convert the "waits" to "reserved" seat quotas if there are unused seats 30 days prior to class start date. At the time the "wait" becomes a "reserved" seat, the welcome letter will be mailed out and billeting reservations made.

ENHANCED SEMINAR PROGRAM

Presently eight AFIT/LS courses are available in the Enhanced Seminar Mode. PPM 302S seminar has been certified by the Defense Procurement Career Management Board as satisfying the civilian career progression requirements for resident course PPM 302.
