Civilian Toolbox

Civilian Developmental Education (CDE) Nomination Handbook

 

The development and leadership programs offered through CDE prepare future leaders with the skills to meet both corporate Air Force and functional leadership requirements. This is accomplished by selecting the right person at the right time for the right training and putting that training to work in an appropriate follow-on assignment. We must encourage civilians to continue in self-development as the Air Force works to increase the leadership potential of our most important resource—our people.


Civilian Recognition

The tools below are designed to help senior leaders recognize civilian Airmen accomplishments with an official ceremony.  These ceremonies provide fellow Airmen the opportunity to see the important roles civilians accomplish to meet Air Force mission requirements.  These events provide the civilian Airman the opportunity to identify themselves as an Airman first. These tools are not intended to be all inclusive, nor replace regulatory guidance, but provide most frequently used recognition information.

Loyalty

Loyalty is faithfulness or a devotion to an individual, country, group or cause.

We don’t make sacrifices out of obligation, we make them because we are loyal to our country. Watch this video to feel that what happens to our country happens to you.
