Since the 2003-2004 academic year, a total of 1,889 students have completed AJPME. Of those graduates, 340 have been members of the Air Force Reserve.
In addition to AJPME, the Joint Forces Staff College offers the Senior Enlisted Joint Professional Military Education program.
Advanced JPME (AJPME) is a 40-week blended program (combining distance education with 3 weeks of residency) and is attended exclusively by RC officers.
We fight as a team, so we should train and educate as a team, and the Commission on the National Guard and Reserve articulated this perspective in its 2008 final report with comments about AJPME:
The quality argument may have been valid at one time, but is difficult to sustain in light of ongoing AJPME program improvements.
If Active Component officers attended AJPME and received full joint education credit, we might expect cost savings (if the low-residency AJPME was used in lieu of a 10-week residential course for selected AC members) and better acculturative outcomes through cross-component interaction.
