The Air Force's updated reenlistment and promotion eligibility policy, which goes into effect Jan. 1, 2017, requires Airmen to complete their enlisted professional military education distance learning course within 12 months of the date they are notified by Air Force Personnel Center or automatically be rendered ineligible to reenlist, extend or promote. Airmen are encouraged to plan out their time in order to meet the requirement. There are still many Airmen who need to complete their EPME distance learning courses by the new policy implementation date. More information about EPME is available on myPers.
