Air University's Squadron Officer School's redesigned new course has increased from five to six-and-a-half weeks, commencing with Class 18A which starts July 31, 2017. The expanded course is set to begin July 31 with Class 18A. Airmen scheduled for the cancelled 17G class will have an opportunity to attend the enhanced in-residence program in future classes. SOC has requested that Air Force Personnel Center and training managers ensure all individuals meeting upcoming promotion boards have priority placement for classes 18A and 18B. This change decreases the total number of annual classes from seven to six. However, SOC plans to increase the size of each class from 600 to 700 students.
