HQ ARPC Announces AY 21/22 RDEDB Invitation to Apply

  • Published

Headquarters Air Reserve Personnel Center announced the invitation to apply (ITA) for the 2021-2022 Academic Year Reserve Developmental Education Designation Board (RDEDB) is available. The suspense/deadline for applications is Sept. 28, 2020, NLT 4:30 p.m. Mountain Time. Late applications will NOT be accepted.

The RDEDB will convene Oct. 26-30, 2020, at HQ ARPC, Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado. In order to be considered by this board, it is imperative that all applicants and endorsers read and comply with the instructions outlined and available in the ITA.

This purpose of the RDEDB is to identify the best-qualified officers for in-residence developmental course placement. Board members will evaluate applicants based on the whole-person concept, which includes depth and breadth of military experience. In addition, applicants will be evaluated on responsibilities that capitalize on the member’s attendance at a specified course as well as their demonstrated professional and leadership qualities. The RDEDB process complements the Air Force Reserve Force Development construct by aligning the best qualified applicants with selected courses. All school board selections will be based on the needs of the Air Force Reserve followed by consideration for the individual’s school preferences.

All officers, raters, and additional raters should be familiar with the process for submitting applications for courses. For questions relating to the RDEDB process, please first read the ITA and attachments. Further questions can be addressed by calling the Total Force Service Center (TFSC) at 1-800-525-0102.
