Air Reserve Technicians

Air reserve technicians, commonly referred to as ARTs, are a nucleus of managers, planners and trainers who have knowledge and expertise to smooth Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) units' transition from a peacetime to a wartime environment. They provide management continuity, equipment maintenance and training support to help keep their units combat ready.

Air reserve technicians carry dual status, working as full-time civil service employees for the Air Force and as military members in the same AFRC units where they work as civilians and performing the same job. A civil servant or public servant is a civilian career public sector employee working for a government department or agency. In their civilian role, air reserve technicians provide full-time support throughout the month for their units. In the AFRC, air reserve technicians participate with other reservists on weekends and annual active-duty tours.

I was previously in the USAFR and currently working for the VA. I applied for a job announcement a month ago and it listed nothing about the position being an ART position, but in the announcement number, it did have "...ART..." From anyone's experience, does this necessarily designate the position as an ART position? I got referred for the job, but the email says it came from APFC's ART Team and like I said, mentioned zero about it being an ART position other than the blurb in the announcement number.

Usually it would have a remark in saying "Must be willing to join the reserves", so not even that? I was in a "De-ART'd" position at Pope Field, it had an ART announcement number. It could be possible that it is a De-ART position. Bust way to tell is by going into the application for the position, it will ask if you are willing to join reserves or whatever.

It doesn't matter. If you ever get a call. Just tell them no. I won't take an ART position.

Don't listen to the negative Nancy's here on the forum. I used the ART program for all I could get and left after about 10 years. I've been out of the ART program for just over 3 years now and have been a 13 for awhile. I just applied for a 14 and am waiting to hear. The ART program can be good but you have to make it good and look for opportunities, possibly outside your comfort zone. When I was an ART in a fighter unit it was at the beginning of the classic associate TFI units and a lot of older technicians were jumping ship.
