Welcome to the Ira C. Eaker Center for Professional Development
Located at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery Alabama, the center supports the Air Force mission by providing world-class, multi-disciplined technical training and professional continuing education to Air Force and other Department of Defense (DOD) personnel, as well as international students. The center is composed of five schools: Commanders' Professional Development School, USAF Chaplain Corps College, National Security Space Institute, Defense Financial Management and Comptroller School, and the USAF Personnel Professional Development School.
Each school can be accessed through our drop down menu at the top of the site. As you can see, we are a diverse organization in terms of our faculty, the functions represented by our schools, and our student population. Eaker Center is an interesting and exciting educational institution with a rich history of excellence. We continue to fulfill our role of providing up-to-date, world-class courses to meet an ever-changing national defense environment. We encourage you to browse through our web pages on a regular basis, something is bound to capture your attention.
Professional continuing education and technical training are critical components for preparing tomorrow’s Airmen to meet the challenges of a volatile and dynamic world environment. The threat to our security has created the need to educate/train our fighting force thoroughly and effectively. Accordingly, Eaker Center courses are targeted to establish, improve, and institutionalize enduring functional competencies. Classroom instruction is supplemented by a select and distinguished cadre of adjunct faculty who are senior leaders and recognized functional experts in the Air Force and DOD.
