Continuum of Learning

Navigating the Force Development waters just became smoother with the recent launch of two new SharePoint Online sites aimed at keeping Airmen and Guardians informed. The Force Development Gateway and Force Development Service Catalog are now live.
As part of Air Education and Training Command’s efforts to aggressively and cost-effectively modernize education and training, Airmen and Guardians can access the “myLearning” digital platform on the Air Force Portal beginning March 18, 2021. Users are advised they should complete all training coursework in ADLS not later than March 10. The ADLS website will be inaccessible to users March 26.
Department of the Air Force civilian employees now have an easy way to access tools to assist in their development. The Air Education and Training Command Civilian Force Development Division recently launched a new MilSuite page, which provides access to a variety of information and links to assist in civilian force development.
The Developmental Special Experience (DSE) Catalog is a consolidated list of available learning activities outside the scope of formal training. It simplifies research efforts to find training opportunities available to Airmen and Guardians like internships, fellowships or developmental special duties.
The Air Force has formally added “Digital Literacy” and “Fosters Inclusion” as Air Force foundational competencies, and both have been incorporated into the ‘Pathfinder 2021’ self-assessment tool in MyVector that allows Airmen to assess themselves and review resources to further their personal and professional development.
