    Education Centers for Service Members(01:12)

    At on-base education centers, enlisted service members can get advice about their plans for higher education. Advisors can help Airmen decide which educational path is right for them, and many of them go on to obtain degrees through the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF).

    The Community College of the Air Force offers associate degrees in five career areas, including aircraft and missile maintenance, electronics and telecommunications, allied health, logistics and resources or public and support services. Enlisted members of the Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve are also eligible to participate in CCAF.
