RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — Active-duty officers are now able to watch and participate in their career field’s developmental team outbriefs online through the Defense Connect Online website.

This initiative allows Airmen to view and ask questions to their career field’s senior representatives on each DT panel.

“Streaming live developmental team outbriefs online helps inform the field of senior leader observations and provides mentorship to the officer corps,” said Col. David Slade, AFPC’s director of assignments. “It also helps officers gain a better understanding of the DT process.”

Developmental teams periodically evaluate officers to vector their career paths for command positions and intermediate developmental education and senior developmental education opportunities.

“These DTs help us develop the best future Air Force senior leaders we can by providing them with mentoring from a senior leader’s perspective as well as outlining multiple vectors for their career paths,” Colonel Slade said.

Assignment officers from each career field will notify their members via e-mail of upcoming DT outbriefs, officials said.

The Air Force personnel services website also has detailed assignment information on job vacancies, indeterminate temporary-duty assignments, DTs and other resources.

For more information on officer assignments and the DT process, call the Total Force Service Center at 800-525-0102.
