VOLK FIELD CRTC - SCHEDULING PROCEDURES

Volk Field is the premier Counterland Training Center in the Air National Guard and works to “provide an integrated, year-round, realistic training environment for units to cost effectively enhance their combat capability and readiness up to the MAJCOM level” (ANGI 10-110) and accomplish events that would otherwise be cumbersome or impossible to complete at your home station. Volk Field stands by our mission to “deliver an advanced and diverse training environment to train the warfighter” by providing a “proving ground” to develop multi-capable Airmen for multi-domain operations across the spectrum of warfare.  The Volk Field CRTC staff are committed to finding innovative and cost-effective ways to provide dynamic training and ensuring the customer experience exceeds training requirements.
