HQ Air Reserve Personnel Center, Buckley Air Force Base, Colo., released instructions to apply for calendar year 2021A Reserve School Selection Board courses today.

In order to be considered by this board, it is imperative that all applicants and endorsers read and comply with the instructions outlined in Attachment 1 of the CY21A RSSB Instructions to Apply. The HQ ARPC suspense/deadline for applications is January 11, 2021, no later than 4:30 p.m. Mountain Time. Late applications will not be accepted.

The CY21A Air Force Reserve School Selection Board will convene February 8-12, 2021, at HQ ARPC.

The RSSB is convened to identify the best qualified officers for placement in select academic courses. These courses can be taken via short duration in-residence, seminar, online, and/or by ‘blended’ methods. Board members evaluate applicants based on the whole person concept which includes depth and breadth of military experience, the applicant’s professional qualities such as demonstrated leadership, academic achievements, developmental education as well as responsibilities that capitalize on the applicant’s attendance at a specified course. The RSSB process complements the Air Force Reserve Force Development construct by aligning the best qualified applicants with selected courses. All school board selections will be based on the needs of the Air Force Reserve.

For questions relating to the RSSB process, please consult the application information first. Further questions can be addressed by calling the Total Force Service Center (TFSC) at 1-800-525-0102.
