Recruiting team seeks training instructors

LACKLAND AIR FORCE BASE, Texas (AETC News Service) — The Air Force is looking for military members interested in becoming a military training instructor.

Chief Master Sgt. Carla King, superintendent of the Recruit the MTI Team, is leading the effort to find new MTIs for the next century. Senior airmen who will commit to a second enlistment, through master sergeants with less than 16 years of total active service are eligible.

“Most concerns about MTI duty are based on misconceptions or fear of the unknown,” King said. “This job is filled with solid rewards for people who are independent, career-minded, highly motivated, and who want to have a hand in molding tomorrow’s Air Force.”

MTIs receive up to $275 per month in special duty assignment pay, $194 in additional clothing allowance to upgrade uniforms, free dry cleaning, a stabilized four-year tour with the option to extend, assignment priority upon completing a tour, and the opportunity to supervise up to 60 trainees at any given time. They also gain valuable leadership and supervisory experience, which is normally reserved for higher-ranking individuals.
