Gen. Raymond and USSF leadership have made it clear that continued development of USSF members is a priority:
“Our small, flat organization allows for deliberate individualized development focused on building space warfighters with the necessary experience and skills to prevail in combat while giving them the opportunities and benefits they seek for a fulfilling career.” - CSO Planning Guide
The Nanodegree program is an opportunity to do just that, allowing members to dive deep into a digital domain that is vital to the success of the space warfighting mission. This exploratory initiative is not only an opportunity to improve your own knowledge and skills, but it also influences how the USSF conducts learning and education. Those who participate in the program will work closely with the CTIO and Digital University teams to provide feedback and suggestions for future coursework. We’re excited to bring this, and more opportunities like it, to the USSF as we continue to build the best space warfighters in the world.
