ONLY 149 ‘out of 1049 Course 15 eligible NCOs are complete and GTG, This means that 900 NCOs are incomplete with 4 months to go. Further, the education office can only test about 50/week...about 200 tests per months. Without intervention, and movement on this issue, demand will outstrip completion capacity. Inaction will become a readiness issue and the consequences will become a ‘Asa reminder, career ramifications for non-completion within ication are as follows: “According to the Air Force Guidance Memorandum to AFI 36-2301, Developmental Education, paragraph A2.2.1.2, failure to enroll, complete, and pass the assigned DL course within one year renders Airmen ineligible for reenlistment or promotion until this requirement is met. If the required EPME DL course is not completed within 12 months of the myPers notification, AFPC will automatically code Airmen as ineligible to reenlist/extend and are ineligible for promotion until the requirement is met. Per AFI 36-2502, Enlisted Airman Promotion/Demotion Programs, para 18, “when individuals are rendered ineligible for promotion, they cannot test, cannot be considered if already tested, and projected promotion will be canceled.” A promotion sequence number will not be reinstated upon DL course completion, NOTE: To remove the ineligibility codes, Airmen must ‘complete their DL courses and then work through their chain of command with ‘AFPC @ 180-525-0102 to have the code removed from their records." Although a member can automatically extend, this will only extend their course enrollment. Once the year has expired, they will be coded in the personnel system for the aforementioned sanctions.
