Senior Air Force noncommissioned officers will soon be able to commission in a two-week time span, as the USAF tests a new pilot program to put more experienced officers into the fray.

36 candidates -ranging from master sergeant to chief master sergeants from active, reserve and Air National Guard components- will come to Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama to partake in the Officer Training School-Accelerated Commissioning Program, which will help senior enlisted enter the officer world, where their experience is much-needed.

“Ultimately, the aim is to drive agility and flexibility in our processes and programs so that we more efficiently and effectively deliver qualified, trained, educated and experienced Airmen to meet mission requirements,” an Air Force official told the Stars and Stripes.

Eligible SNCOs must have completed the SNCO Academy course and been selected for Officer Training School. Unfortunately, Airmen cannot apply directly for the OTS-ACP program.
