Education Center

The Minot AFB Education Center is the hub of the Force Development Flight.  It provides one-stop service for everything from off-duty education opportunities tailored to meet the needs of today’s dynamic military environment, to Professional Military Education and distance learning enrollments.

In addition to three world-class universities and the Base Library, it is also home to the Base Training section.  The Education Center also offers a number of classrooms for use in conducting classes such as the Transition Assistance Program, Government Purchasing Card, and Local Conditions among many others.

The Airman Leadership School, First Term Airman’s Center and the Professional Development Center also fall under the umbrella of the Force Development Flight.
