The School of Systems & Logistics (LS) is a Professional Continuing Education (PCE) school providing multi modal continuing education courses. The AF education process is made up of a collection of existing legacy systems and newer online systems. The newer online systems neither replace nor interface seamlessly with the older legacy systems. As a result there are courses tied to specific systems and the application for those courses are naturally governed by the processes tied to that system. The School of Systems and Logistics has no control over the online or the legacy systems or their associated “application” procedures.

We have made this as seamless as possible for the student by providing all the instructions necessary to the student when they click the REGISTER button associated with the course of their choice. The student must click the REGISTER button and they are then linked to a page providing them with the step by step application procedures tied to that course.

THE DIFFERENT SYSTEMS governing the application processes are:
  • ACQ Now – online course registration system
  • OTA (Oracle Training Applications) system – a legacy system. Applications are managed by Unit Training Monitors and MAJCOM Education offices. (SF 1556 or DD182 are submitted through the appropriate training offices)
  • INTERNET STREAMING COURSES (apply directly with the school) – courses taught by LS instructors hosted on a Learning Management System (separate from ACQ Now)

The step by step process for each of the three methods is provided when a student selects a course and clicks the REGISTER button associated with that course.
