Keesler's training mission is the responsibility of the 81st Training Group -- the largest electronics training group in the world.

On any given day, more than 5,000 students attend classes in one of over 600 courses. Accredited by the Commission of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the group is a Community College of the Air Force institution.

The 81st Training Group annually provides training to more than 38,000 officers, airmen and civilian employees of the Air Force, Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, other DOD agencies and DOD contractors, as well as allied nations.

Technical resident courses include career fields such as personnel, information management, air traffic control, finance, manpower, communications-electronics maintenance, computer operation, maintenance and programming, weather, metrology, aircraft warning and control systems and radio operations. Seven other locations provide additional training, including tactical air control, postal operations, satellite-wideband equipment maintenance and visual information.

In addition to resident, nonresident and mobile training team courses, the group develops training literature for extension and career development cours-es in support of Air Force on-the-job training. Computer based or assisted instructional programs and interactive video programs enhancing technologies in classrooms, simulations and other trainer systems are built here and used worldwide. 

Since 1942, Keesler has graduated more than 2.2 million students.
