These resources equip Airmen with information needed to become highly trained, educated, and adaptable to the threats our competitors present, and the significant role every Airman plays for the mission to be successful.

Building on The Enlisted Force Structure, The "Brown Book," which provides Airmen a roadmap of future roles and responsibilities, Prepping the Line is an initiative to help guide and prepare Airmen for their new roles and to be force multipliers for the Air Force and their units.

Supervisor JQS

This pilot Air Force Job Qualification Standard (AFJQS) offers a framework of discrete, tangible tasks that measure an Airman's ability to serve as a Supervisor in the United States Air Force. It will bridge the gap between Professional Military Education (PME) and on the job experience, allowing for current supervisors to have ownership in the development of all new Staff Sergeants and Senior Airman assigned in supervisory roles.
