When you join the Air Force, right from day one, you will start learning. As you get stuck into basic training and get used to Air Force culture, you will be soaking up knowledge like a sponge. You will learn the skills you need to be a member of the team. From then on, the learning never really stops, and you will continue gaining knowledge, skills and qualifications. You can even be sponsored to study for a tertiary qualification.
