I am looking into switching to Air Force after my 20 years in the army, which is April 2020. My current MOS in the army is 25B: Information Systems Operator-Analyst. What is the equivalent Air Force Specialty Codes (AFSC) for 25B?
I have 3.5 years of 25B2O experience, and have attended Primary Leadership Development Course (now called BLC). I have CompTIA A+, Network+, Security+, CCENT (ICND1), and MCSA Server 2012 certification.
What are the procedure in switching Armed Forces Branch?
What do I need to do to prepare for the school or courses I will be sent to?

After 20 years in the Army? Is that even doable?

That is one of my question as well, I am still under contract with the army until April 2020.

I think with your previous issues and your large amount of time in the Army, it would be nearly impossible to switch to the Air Force. Maybe Air National Guard but even that might be difficult for you.

The Air Force wouldn't take me with an early release from the Army. Not gonna take you with major grade reductions.

There's nothing that's directly comparable.

1B4 is a network operator. Defensive and offensive operations, but it's not a first time position. It requires Airmen to cross train into it so I'm not sure how that would work for you.

1N4A is a Network Analyst. They do a wide range of stuff from Malware analysis to network traffic analysis.

However if you already have 20 years in the army my guess is that you'd be put into a middle management position and not a hands on keyboard person.
