Abstract : Officer Training School (OTS) is one of several commissioning sources into the United States Air Force (USAF) officer corp. These sources (and their respective percentages) are OTS (25%), Reserve Officer Training Corp (42%) , Air Force Academy (15%), and other (18%) . OTS is a 14-week course that has the mission to lead, train, motivate, evaluate, and commission as second lieutenants candidates who attain Air Force officership standards in response to USAF and USAF Reserve requirements. OTS objectives include, among other things, providing an adequate number of newly commissioned officers to meet Air Force manpower requirements, and identifying and eliminating trainees who do not meet the prescribed standards for commissioned Air Force Officers.
