Community College of the Air Force

Air Force Engine Technician

The Community College of the Air Force (CCAF) is a worldwide multi-campus community college established to meet the educational needs of Air Force enlisted personnel. CCAF is regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Commission on Colleges (SACSCC) as an occupational educational institution.

The College is operated by and for the benefit of all airmen. Base Education counselors serve as academic advisors for CCAF students and are the primary means of communication between CCAF and Air Force enlisted personnel. Academic credit for CCAF is earned at technical schools, duty stations, and college campuses throughout the world.

Specific degree programs in each Air Force specialty area are designed to provide students with the theoretical background to perform as technical experts and competent supervisors in their fields. The primary goal of the CCAF is to allow airmen to progress toward and ultimately earn an Associate Degree in their Air Force specialty with minimum disruptions from Permanent Changes of Station (PCS), Temporary Duty (TDY), and shift work.
