What is OI&RSD?

A program where you will:

  • > Recruit, train, or instruct future & current officers in a stable, supportive environment
  • > Temporarily step outside of your career field to broaden your impact on the Air and Space Forces
  • > Create unique experiences with a broad mix of fellow faculty and students

Note: Depending on the position and job requirements, eligible Airmen and Guardians in the grade of First Lieutenant through Lieutenant Colonel are able to apply.


Application Process

The Space Force holds a similar, but separate, process for eligible Guardians.  Look out for your automated message during your eligibility window to prepare for the  application timeline.

  • ☐ First, discuss your desires with your Senior Rater (SR)
  • ☐ During the annual window, you and your SR will receive an eligibility message
  • ☐ If eligible, you can apply through myVector - applicants must also be SR-nominated to be considered
  • ☐ A board will evaluate your suitability and a list of candidtates will be announced
  • ☐ Candidates may apply for positions in Talent Marketpace within myVector
  • ☐ If chosen for an assignment, your name will appear on the selection list released in the Fall!
