11/1/2010 - RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- An online tool available to Airmen aims to reduce the workload of tracking appointments and training in preparation for a deployment.

Found on the Air and Space Expeditionary Force Online website, the Personal Deployment Processing Tool allows Airmen to review and track their readiness status for medical and personnel requirements.

The PDPT tool was developed by the AEF Personnel Operations Center as a means for consolidating data from various personnel systems. The tool presents data from the Military Personnel Data System, Preventive Health Assessment and Individual Medical Readiness in a personalized "dashboard" format that is refreshed daily.

"I want to make sure we do everything possible to assist Airmen in preparing and staying ready to deploy worldwide," said Col. James Horton, director of AEF and personnel operations at the Air Force Personnel Center. "This tool provides deploying members more control in a collaborative effort with unit deployment managers to ensure readiness."

To use PDPT, Airmen must first create an AEF Online account at by selecting on the "Register" tab. Airmen can access the tool at the PDPT link under the "Other AEF Applications" dropdown menu.

Users can also make their AEF Online account Common Access Card enabled by clicking on the "My Account" dropdown item and selecting "Enable CAC."

Future improvements include being able to access the Advanced Distributed Learning System, obtaining deployment availability code information, and implementing a "Go Red" date system of letting Airmen know when they risk going overdue on a specific requirement.

"Airmen need to have an AEF Online account, giving them access to invaluable deployment information such as the personal deployment processing tool," said Dr. Todd Fore, the AFPC executive director.
"Airmen can be called upon at any time in support of the Air Force mission, and this tool enables all Airmen to be aware of their year round mission readiness."

For additional information visit the AEF Online and AFPC personnel services websites or call the Total Force Service Center at 800-525-0102 or DSN 665-5000.
