AFOQT / TBAS Testing

Det 630 offers the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test (AFOQT) and the Test of Basic Aviation Skills (TBAS) to current and potential officer candidates.


The AFOQT is the Air Force Officer Qualifying Test, which is a standardized aptitude test (similar to the SAT and ACT) used to select applicants for officer commissions programs or specific training programs. The AFOQT is mandatory for any cadet wishing to commission in the Air Force and should be completed by Dec. 31 of their sophomore year. 

The Cleveland Military Entrance Processing Station (MEPS) will now be our main source of AFOQT testing. They are utilizing the new electronic tests and have both the proper facilities and personnel to proctor the test. Testing is available every Friday at 0830.

If you would like to schedule an AFOQT, please use AFOQT RSVP link above to provide information and Cadre will coordinate a date with MEPS.
