Congratulations to Alex Werner, 509 FSS/FSDE’s new Base Training Manager!

Many of you may recognize Alex. That is because she has been with us since 2022 as our Community College of the Air Force Advisor. She promoted to our Base Training Manager in June of 2023.

A native of Wills Point, Texas, Alex moved to Missouri to be closer to her family. She has previous experience in training and education, including working as a store trainer for Hy-Vee before moving into training and development for the Hy-Vee Corporate offices. Following her time at Hy-Vee, she worked in higher education assessment and institutional effectiveness for The University of Texas at Tyler.

Alex holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in English, and her master’s thesis from Iowa State University of Science and Technology received a research excellence award.

“I am so excited to have an opportunity to work with even more of our Whiteman AFB community. I’m looking forward to learning more about the training program and providing support and guidance for our base population.

The news we have all been waiting for!

CCAF IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS!

DISCLAIMER: While CCAF has resumed operations, your Whiteman AFB Education Center is still experiencing numerous LIMFACs that hinder our ability to provide you with the level of customer service that you are accustomed to.

The new AU SIS has launched. The new system is not 100% automated at the moment, however, CCAG is no actively reviewing degree progress. You will start to see updated degree program reports and will be able to apply for graduation. It may still take a few weeks for automated updates to/from MilPDS to flow, but ultimately this is the progress we need!

Air University and the Community College of the Air Force have regained the ability to review degree progress and graduate students, launching the new AU Student Information System, June 20, 2023.

- CCAF Online Services (Web Progress Reports, transcript orders, etc.). Transcripts may still be ordered, but will only reflect information loaded prior to 28 Sep 2022.
- Process Degrees.

Projected get well date: 30 March 2023

Please be patient with us and CCAF during this time as we navigate through these changes.
