Required Transition Briefings
To ensure the transition from military to civilian life is a positive experience, congress has mandated that Airman & Family Readiness centers provide the following courses;
Pre-Separation Briefings: 8-11am, twice a month
In anticipation of retirement or separation, members are required attend the pre-separation briefing as soon as possible within the preceding 24 (for retirements) or 12 months (for separation). The briefing provides resources available for making a successful transition back into civilian life. Please see the A&FRC calendar for specific dates.
TAP: 8am - 4pm, daily
This 5-day program is for those who are preparing to retire or separate from active duty or reserve service. Retirees can participate as early as 24 months prior to retirement and separtees can participate as early as 12 months prior to separation. Spouses and/or significant others are encouraged to attend on a space-available basis. Please see the A&FRC calendar for specific dates.
Capstone: 8am - 12pm, by appointment only
This personalized briefing is the final step for all retirees and separatees and must be accomplished between 90 and 150 days prior to separation date. This event will validate the service member's preparedness to be successful following their military service by reviewing all documentation required to meet all of their Career Readiness Standards. Please see the A&FRC calendar for specific dates.
