HQ RIO Readiness Training team will be hosting an Inidividual Reservist (IR) Orientation at HQ RIO, Buckley AFB, Colo., November 18-20, 2019.  The maximum number of attendees for each course is 60. 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.

The deadline to apply for the November IR Orientation is October 18, 2019.

All attendees must be in a School Tour status, requested through AROWS-R.  Annual tour or IDTs cannot be utilized for attendance.  The HQ RIO Individual Reserve Readiness team will follow up with each attendee to confirm course admittance, pending seat availability.  The Readiness team will also be coordinating with your assigned detachment to ensure your participation readiness status is satisfactory.  If you have anything that may hinder you from being placed on orders (i.e., medical) you will be placed lower on the priority listing or may be eliminated as a candidate.  Note:  If you will be on RPA or MPA orders at the time of the IR Orientation, you will either need to curtail your orders around the course dates or the unit that you are on orders with will need to fund your attendance via AF1610.
