The Education Services Center is located in Bldg. 11. The center provides base personnel and their families opportunities to achieve individual educational goals. Both service centers provide educational and vocational counseling and other support services which may also be accessed from the Air Force Virtual Education Center Bolling (AFVEC) and through outreach education programs. Counselors and specialists are available to assist with commissioning programs and degree planning.
Education Centers are the contact point for distance learning for Air Force Institute of Technology courses and professional military education courses such as Squadron Officer School, Air Command & Staff College, Air War College and Senior Non-Commissioned Officer Academy. Distance learning (DL) versions include correspondence, internet, CDs, videos and seminars.
Testing services are available on a regular basis. Available tests include Defense Activity for Nontraditional Education Services (DANTES), certification exams, PME end-of-course exams, and college distance learning exam proctoring. Learning Labs are available to help members sharpen knowledge and build their skills to prepare for college courses and DANTES exams.
Air Force military personnel may access their own personal education record through the AFVEC to review goals, degree status and to apply for tuition assistance using their personal AFVEC account. Tuition assistance is provided for more than 350 institutions worldwide. Information on Veterans Administration education benefits and federal grants or loans is available through AFVEC or may be reviewed with a counselor in one of the education centers.
Webster University, University of Maryland University College and Central Texas College administrative offices are co-located in JBAB’s Education Center. These colleges and universities offer classes at on base Monday through Saturday, as well as a full schedule of DL courses/programs. Representatives of Old Dominion University, Stratford University, and Strayer University hold monthly office hours. Commanders are encouraged to use these resources to bring all educational services into their organizations.
