What is AFTB
AFTB is a volunteer-supported Department of the Army (DA) training program designed to teach individuals and families how to be more independent within the military environment. AFTB also supports the total Army effort in helping those achieve their highest level of personal development.
There are three levels of training for family members, civilian employees and military members which address multiple issues from an individual to leadership perspectives. All classes are free and taught by professionally trained instructors.
AFTB classes are useful not only in the military community we live in, but to provide education which translates into job skills and resume building. Come join us and meet new people, network and learn more about something you already thought you knew!
