  • Part time job which requires attendance at Guard Drills one weekend per month and 15 days of annual training each year.
  • Must be able to complete 20 years combined service time by age 60.

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.

The first step is to contact an Air National Guard recruiter to find out if you are eligible. Initial screening will be conducted based on qualification criteria. 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.
