Basic Training

The 737th Training Group provides Air Force Basic Military Training for all enlisted people entering the Air Force, Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard, earning Lackland the nickname, "Gateway to the Air Force."

The Air Force receives approximately 30,000 Airmen each year from the 737th Training Group; the number varies with projected requirements.

Following graduation, Airmen go on to technical training at Lackland or elsewhere before their first Air Force assignment. More than seven million Airmen have completed BMT since 1946.


Technical Training

Explore dozens of career fields available to enlistees to get your started on a track to success.

Not everyone in the Air Force and Air Force Reserve is a pilot. There are countless jobs ranging from medical to computer techs to paralegals who comprise our Airmen. Many jobs translate directly into the civilian arena and service entitles you to numerous skills and educational benefits!

Join the ranks and serve your nation as a Citizen Airman, working one weekend a month and two weeks a year. Take a closer look at the jobs now available in today's Air Force Reserve.
