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.

Hi all,

I have a question regarding promotions on the military side that can affect the Technician side. The best way for me to ask it to provide an example. If you have a WG11 and a WG10, both E6s promotion eligible on the military side, can the WG10 be promoted over the WG11 on the military and still maintain the WG10 slot. I thought there was a reg about this, but can't find it. Does anyone have any info/guidance?

I have been an ART (air reserve tech) for a long while and I do not know of a regulation or AFI to address this issue. But I have seen this occur in my unit here at Barksdale, actually in a couple different units over the years. That makes me assume it is perfectly legal. So for what it is worth I have seen it with WGs, WLs, and GSs. The way I see it, your military side and civilian side are separated when it comes to some things.
