Air Force COOL


Air Force COOL Certification Training

Industry-recognized credentials are a great way for airmen to bolster their Air Force careers and prepare for their eventual transition to civilian employment as they retire or separate from the Air Force.


The first requirement for enlisted RegAF, ARES, and ANG component members is you have to be on Title 10 or Title 32.502(f) orders during the complete process. In addition, to utilize the Air Force Cool program you must meet the following eligibility requirements:

• Possess a 5 skill level in their Primary Air Force Specialty Code (PAFSC) that is associated to the assigned Control AFSC to which the credential is mapped.
• Do not have an UIF, are not on a Control Roster and are current on their most recent Physical Fitness test at the time of application.
• Have a profile in AFVEC with an approved credentialing goal.
• Enlisted members must complete the entire credential while on active duty status and obtain supervisor approval.


To apply for the Air Force COOL program, click into the Air Force Virtual Education Center (AFVEC). Select Air Force COOL from the list of programs. If you are logged in to AFVEC you’ll see a button for Air Force Cool that will bring you straight to the page as well.

If you meet the requirements, the first step is to search for approved, related credentials. Once you’ve chosen a credential that you want to pursue, you will need to create an educational goal.

While you’re creating this process after your supervisor has approved your educational goal, you’ll be able to go into AFVEC and start uploading your supporting documentation. It is the member’s responsibility to do the research and find the information that they’re wanting to pursue. The AF COOL program does not offer that for you directly.
