The Air Force Reserve is an integral part of our country's dominant presence in air, space and cyberspace, contributing daily to the Total Force mission and is actively involved in global operations.
Civilians may join the Reserve as a Traditional Reservist, attend basic training and technical school, and serve monthly at their assigned home unit. As they progress, new positions open in the Air Reserve Technician, Active Guard and Reserve, and Individual Mobilization Augmentee programs, as well as federal civil service employees.
Active duty members may transfer into the Reserve Component in any available position for which they qualify.
Common Access Cards are required for "CAC Access" websites, and are only issued to currently-serving members. Non-members may contact your local recruiter to see what positions are currently available. See "Contact" at right to find your nearest recruiter.
