Associate Degree for 18D?

Any solid info on whether the 18D training will qualify for an AS degree?

Doc Diego,

To the best of my knowledge, the answer to your question is "no".

Allow me to explain:

Only the Air Farce has Assoc. Degrees awarded to their service members. It is the CCAF and every E-Grade member of the AF is "enrolled". Their MOS training and general education courses can get them a Degree awarded from the CCAF (Community College of the Air Force). It isn't some "hokey" $hit, either. The CCAF is fully Accredited.

As for your individual situation, I recommend you pull a copy of your AARTs, get a hold of every transcript from every college/University you have attended, pick a few colleges you wish to attend, and have them do a pre-evaluation on your military/civilian education.

Don't let 'em B.S. you into "oh, we will evaluate your credit transferability AFTER you complete 3 courses." If they pull that, move to the next one.

In fact, you can PM me if you would like some help. I have friends in places :-)

Respectfully,

~Eric

Not to sharp shoot you by any means but your second hand information isnt accurate with respect to 18D receiving an Assoc Degree.

According to the information we, SFMS class 04-06, received from the Asst Dean of the SWMG(A) when we started the course, we will be receiving Associates Degrees for our studies at the end of the SFQC, as will every class after us. At that time, March '06, they were unsure how many would be "grandfathered" in.

As for the AF, I havent a clue.

I will let you guys know more after I graduate (no jokes from the peanut gallery and you know who you are).

Crip-
It's great to hear you guys will be getting Assoc. Degrees - we received a transcript from the Baylor Medical School when I went through, for about 38 credits, and when I got out - nobody would accepot them. Their excuse - these are for some kind of army 'first aid classes' even though the names were Anatomy and Physiology, Pharmacology, Patient Care, etc. It makes me happy to know that you guys are getting the recognition you deserve for being the best non-doctor medical professionals out there. So, when do you graduate again? With all the time you spent in the course, maybe you deserve a Bachelor's...... (c'mon, you knew it was coming, at least you got a compliment first)

Crip,

No troubles with the "sharp shoot". That's the beauty of an open forum: someone always has more current, actionable information.

How could I not know...

Projected grad date for PH-III is 13 Feb 07. If I am able to DLPT out of phrench (intentional) my projected SFQC grad date is June 07. If I have to attend language school, grad date is Sept 07...

I am happy (read: content for now) to be in the SFQC and have my sights focused on the target to my immediate front. Of the 55 guys who originally started SFMS class 04-06 only 19 of us remain.

Keep on driving!!! We're pulling for you, although it would be cool if you set the record for most reenlistments while in the pipeline.....

Us guys my butt... We are just dropping the dead weight. Besides, your class needs more personality, especially that class leader...wow is he uptight. I do wish we could drop a few more. It will save us having to peer them out later, or worse yet trust our lives to them.

I have truly come to despise guys trying to "just get by." The whole "a 74.5 is as good as a 94.5" mentality is gonna cost someone their life; but I digress.

Glad to see you are doing well bro.

Be careful rab... don't start pissing on people's legs who may be on your team in the future, esp. if they might be a higher rank than you.
