AFTB Training: The Next Step in Army Readiness

Fort Detrick offers classes online, face-to-face and coming soon, even on Facebook.

  • AFTB uses a train-the-trainer approach to deliver local installation training. AFTB trainers are trained and certified by ACS Instructor Trainers. As a certified trainer you will train other volunteers at your home station. Best of all — the training is usable at any installation Army wide! The training certificate and course materials are yours to keep and can be used in any AFTB program.
  • Enrollment in Levels I,II or III classes is based on the experience as an Army family member, not on the rank of the sponsor. Family members can enter the training program when and where they desire.
  • The "Enlisted Spouse Training Series" is available upon request.
  • Fort Detrick offers classes online at External Link: Leaving Fort Detrick Website and face to face upon request.
