Student Responsibilities: 

Once entered into a resident Enlisted Professional Military Education program, students must understand attendance is mandatory and designed to prepare them to assume more responsibility as they achieve greater rank. In order to achieve success, students must be actively engaged in the learning process, adhere to class schedule attendance requirements and engage in the learning process by completing all homework, objectives, performance and remediation assignments on time. Students will not be excused for routine appointments, ceremonies or unit functions during duty hours. Routine appointments whether personal or medical must be rescheduled prior to Day 1 or after graduation. In class, students will listen actively, think critically and willingly discuss lesson principles in class. They must also practice and complete curriculum requirements while also participating in group activities. It is incumbent upon the student to put forth the effort necessary to achieve all learning objectives. This effort will lead to mastery of EPME curriculum material and ultimately to success as an Air Force NCO and future Senior NCO.
