The U.S. Air Force has removed the automatic reenlistment or extension ineligibility status for Airmen who fail to complete their enlisted professional military education (EPME) distance learning course tests by their suspense dates. As a result, Airmen who were previously impacted due to EPME non-completion will now be eligible to re-enlist or extend (unless otherwise ineligible), and should soon see their ineligibility code removed from their record in the Military Personnel Data. The approval authority for EMPE distance learning course deferments now rests with squadron commanders. For more information, contact the Total Force Service Center at (800) 525-0102. Follow the most current EPME information on the Force Development page on myPers, or select 'Active Duty Enlisted' from the drop-down menu and search 'EPME.'
