I will be submitting my my application in the next week or two and I would like to get some of the CWs opinion on how my packet looks based on some essential information below:

I have been in the AF for 8 years and I’m currently an E-5. I have great achievements such as Airman of the month, E4 below the zone, NCO of the quarter and NCO of the year. One thing I lack though is the NCOIC position. There are just not too many positions available plus too many higher ranking NCOs everytime I PCS to a base. I have LORs from my 1st LT(flight commander since there is no Capt assigned), Lt Col, Col and a CW3. My reaponsibilies have some weight as well due to my position as a project manager, training manager, and leadership roles documented on my performance reports. I have plenty of certifications as well that makes me a well technically qualified for the job.

I hope that i get some honest and constructive feedback on this. Is there anyone in here that is prior Air Force that went to the technical warrant side? Thanks!

Hello SSgt Perez. One of the biggest things the board is going to look at is leadership and how you capture it. Both are important. Your certifications are important and should be included, but focus on your leadership experience. The ability to write is very important for Officers and considering this is an Officer-producing program, it's no exception. Proof read, proof read, and proof read it again. The last thing you want is for your package to have something that could have easily been remedied prior to submission. It worked pretty well for me. 15 year MSgt and they still deemed me worthy enough to become a candidate and I'm looking forward to the transition.

Thanks for the advice! Im waiting for the result that should come out this month. Are you still in training or already on duty? Was transition hard? U understand how relaxed the AF could be compared to the Army. What are the biggest differences? Thanks again! WO1 (Join to see)

I'm still active with the AF waiting to cross over. It's been a long process for me, but others have had very short timelines with their transition. It all depends on your course dates. I've worked in joint environments throughout my career, so I already know what to expect. Each service has their pros and cons but my best experiences have been while deployed with the Army. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

I just got notified that my packet is now board ready. I’ve had to deal with a bunch of barriers as well such as NCORP and PCA that had to altered by our great chief. Wish both of us the best and if both selected, i hope to cross paths with you one day. WO1 (Join to see)

I worked tirelessly with the Warrant Officer Strength Manager to verbalize my experience without sounding braggadocios or too Air Force specific. In the end, most of what I was evaluated in was civilian technical experience. We were able to get waivers for ncoers, BLC and ALC. Building a rock solid package is a lot of hard work, but it was all worth it when we got the 255A award letter. First time go! Best of luck!

It is a best kept secret! If not because of my friend who got selected as well, I wouldn’t have known! WO1 (Join to see)
