Most officers are selected for PAS development in conjunction with Intermediate Developmental Education (IDE) designation, typically at the 10-12 year commissioned service point. In addition there are limited PAS opportunities as part of SDE. Officers designated on this IAS development path will accomplish a one year IDE or SDE program and serve in an international pol-mil affairs assignment on their first or second assignment post-DE. Further developmental opportunities on the PAS track may be available as determined by the PAFSC functional Development Team (DT) and the needs of the Air Force.
