What are you asking? The quickest? 52 weeks.....
It's a finnicky question. It truly depends on how HR computates 52 weeks now. When I got checked out, it was simply if I held 52 weeks of my certification. When I eventually applied again, it was if you had enough hours (2040 hours) to fulfill the 52 weeks. Aka. A drill weekend counted as a 20 hour period, a ST or AT day counted as 8 hour period. If they still do it the later way, it takes a whileOh, assuming you were reserve (part time) so you probably wouldn't be working 52 weeks straight.
I'm understanding it as, if you enlisted full time, you'd have to fulfill a number of years before you can apply to the faa.

Your OJT in air traffic is spent getting a certification. Any extra days there after are not MEST days and are typically out of squadron budget. You can probably expect somewhere around 30 of those (about 240 hours worth)I feel like it would also depend on your OJT and extra days they can give you too. My unit gives 6 months of maintenance training to get you fully certified in aircraft repair. Other units may do a lot less, some more. Depends on the career field, budget and manning, for mine anyway. I know people in Intel or flight crew that are essentially AGRs for years, different circumstances though.
Apply to a contract tower or take a contract job overseas. If you’re a traditional guardsman, that’s your best option. Or you could deploy doing air traffic but if you prefer not to deploy, contract tower is the way to go. That was my dilemmaSince the experienced bid asks for minimum 52 weeks experience--what's the quickest a national air guard have to accumulate 52?
From what I have seen on the lists of the prior experience, no. I’ve been lurking forums since 2013ish, the year I got rated as an AF controller, and I can’t recall any lists having any centers. I do know a guy who got ZUA, but they were from there, requested it, and went direct.Can you go to an FAA enroute facility after you get your 52 weeks experience?
The air force tech school is 4 months long
The only way I've seen enroute is to apply in the inexperienced bid, which you can waive the 5 Weeks of basic. I got enroute but choose to take the basic just in case FAA had different standard, so that I learn it their way. For military experience I've seen most get level 4-5 unless they have radar experience for up and down then they may get level 7.
Time is only for rated time so once you have rated in facility time starts then. I've also heard two different things from HR first being it is 52 weeks at one facility rated, second is cumulative rated time so six months rated at facility A and 6 months rated at facility B would meet the requirement.
I'm a little confused here. You're saying a ton of things that make it seem like you've done research, but apparently very poor research. I believe the 72 days is working days. Also, you dont have to be full time to be a controller in the air force.It says here 72 days for tech training. ah well, I cant do AF anyway because you have to be full time.
