The registration deadline for the upcoming Individual Reservist Orientation Course dates has been extended to June 29.

The course is being offered Aug. 1-3 and again Sept. 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. These members will receive priority placement. 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.
