The Department of the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFROTC) is an educational program designed to allow young men and women to pursue a commission in the United States Air Force or Space Force. This can be accomplished by first attending a community college then transferring to a four-year university and graduating with a Bachelors degree. The cadre and staff are the officers that mentor the cadets and the staff that keeps paperwork and other things running smoothly.
AFROTC affords graduates the opportunity to pursue a broad range of career fields to include aviation related jobs, law, space operations, medicine, intelligence, computer systems, and engineering. You can take part in this unique experience as a college freshman with no commitment. You can continue on in the program without any commitment to the military for the first two years. The AFROTC program is open to all college students regardless of major.
Air Force ROTC at University of Hawaii meets up to four times per week. On Tuesday and Thursday mornings, cadets participate in Physical Training. This prepares them for the semester Air Force Physical Fitness Assessment (PFA). Cadets attend Aerospace Studies class, which is taught by members of cadre with topics being: Introduction to the Air Force, Evolutions of Air and Space Power, Leadership and National Security. On Friday mornings, cadets attend Leadership Laboratory (LLAB), where they have the opportunity to practice the followership and leadership skills they have learned, preparing them to be an officer in the military.
