Notice to IR Airmen -- New IR Orientation dates set

HQ RIO Notice to Individual Reserve Airmen

HQ RIO Notice to Individual Reserve Airmen


Note: Registration deadline extended to June 29, 2017

Due to a lack of funding created by the repeated continuing resolutions and last minute budget passage, HQ RIO postponed the May 16-18 Individual Reservist Orientation (IRO) course.

IRs who were scheduled to attend this course have priority placement in two newly-scheduled course dates. The new dates are Aug. 1-3 and Sep 26-28.

Applications to attend either course must be received by June 29.

IRs who were confirmed for the canceled May IR Orientation must reply to the RNT/myPers incident they received via email to indicate their preferred course date. The deadline for these members to reply is also June 29.

IMAs gained within the last 12 months are also eligible to attend.  IMAs gained more than 12 months prior to the class start date may attend with HQ RIO Detachment commander approval.

IR Orientations are provided twice a year at HQ RIO, Buckley AFB, Colorado. The course provides IRs with tools and information to effectively manage their Air Force career. Although this training is not mandatory, it is highly recommended.

All attendees must be in a RPA/School Tour status (requested through AROWS-R).   Annual tour and IDTs cannot be utilized for IRO attendance.
