Getting a commission

While serving as an enlisted person, you may be eligible to apply for an officer position. You must be a college graduate and pass the Air Force Officer Qualitative Test (AFOQT) and physical exam. You may also be required to attend a technical training school.

Your recruiter will schedule you to take the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) test (if not taken in high school) and physical exam. Once "qualified" you will look at the possible list of career fields for you to choose from. You will see the section first hand, allowing for a sound decision on your career options.
