Eaker Center adds space education to professional continuing education programs

Air University’s Ira C. Eaker Center for Professional Development is now home to the Air Force Space Command’s professional continuing education, or PCE, center for excellence, the National Security Space Institute, effective Thursday.

“It is logical for the NSSI to nest within the Eaker Center as it is responsible for providing a large portion of Air Force professional continuing education programs,” said Col. Robert Gibson, NSSI commandant. “Completing this merger now will allow us to better institutionalize space development throughout the Air Force by more closely integrating space education and training into overall Air University and Air Force processes.”
