FAST TRACK: 2 YEARS OR LESS

Even if your MOS, rating or AFSC was not in the medical field you can launch a career in a matter of months by earning an associate degree, diploma, certification or license. Some jobs may need certification and licensing in addition to the educational training, depending on the state.
