Air Force training counts as college credit

SSgt. Taylor Holt, the U.S. Air Force Enlisted Accessions Recruiter at the 314th Air Force Recruiting Squadron in Scranton, has announced a program that allows Air Force training to count as college credit toward an associate degree from the Community College of the Air Force(CCAF). 

All active duty Air Force members are automatically enrolled in the program that provides transferable, accredited college credits upon completion of technical school, basic military training(BMT), and upgrade training. The CCAF is accredited by the Southern Commission of Colleges and Schools.

Other education benefits from the Air University include a unique “Associates-to-Baccalaureates” initiative between the Air Force and civilian higher education institutions, offering baccalaureate degree opportunities to every Air Force enlisted member.

“Unlike common perception, we in the U.S. Air Force are more than just pilots. In fact, the majority of service members lead careers in finance, administration, engineering, cyber security, maintenance, and more,” explained SSgt Holt, who was recently named Enlisted Accessions Recruiter in the Scranton office serving most of northeastern Pennsylvania. Prior to his new position, SSgt. Holt served as a Munition Systems Technician and has been an Airman for over a decade.
