The 403rd Wing released the fiscal year 2023 Unit Training Assembly schedule, and there are some changes based on last year’s beta test.

In 2022, the wing was one of three units in the Air Force Reserve Command selected for a participation beta test for a tailored Unit Training Assembly. The other two units selected are the 315th Airlift Wing, Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina and 477th Fighter Group, Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska.

“The goal of the revised UTA schedule is to maximize Airmen’s time doing the job they joined the Air Force to do, by completing requirements virtually and consolidating our additional required training into the ‘super’ UTAs,” said Col. Stuart Rubio, 403rd Wing commander. “Based on beta test results and Airmen’s feedback, we adjusted this year’s schedule to accommodate for inspection events and allow time for planning between off-UTAs and training events. Also, versus having no UTA one month of the year, we have single day virtual UTAs in February and July so Airmen can receive payments each month.”

This year’s schedule consists of two super UTAs in October and May, eight in person UTAs, and two, one-day virtual UTAs in February and July.

FY 2023 Calendar:

Oct. 14-16 (Super UTA)         Nov. 5-6                                           Dec. 3-4

Jan. 7-8                                  Feb. 4 (Virtual UTA)                        March 4-5

April 15-16                             May 5-7 (Super UTA)                      June 4-5

July 8 (Virtual UTA)               Aug. 5-6                                           Sept. 9-10

Airmen can begin logging their virtual UTA events Oct. 1. Airmen will focus on CBT training such as: Force Protection, No Fear Act, Religious Freedom, Cyber-Awareness, and administrative products such as: performance reports, travel vouchers, Force Support Squadron and AFSC specific paperwork. They will also receive credit for completing required medical tasks such as getting a vaccination or seeing their civilian dentist.

Reserve Citizen Airmen should coordinate with their supervisors and commanders to inquire about telework options or to reschedule or excuse any UTAs.

“We learned a lot from the beta test, but we are always looking for feedback to make the UTA schedule more effective,” said Rubio “And, if there are Airmen that find themselves in hardship or need to make adjustments to facilitate work or school requirements, please contact your chain of command.”
