INCIRLIK AIR BASE, Turkey -- The newly consolidated Professional Development Center hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Jan. 12, 2018. 

After the ribbon was cut, ceremony attendees were taken on a guided tour highlighting the consolidation and the upgraded classrooms.

“This project didn’t happen overnight,” said U.S. Air Force Col. David Eaglin, 39th Air Base Wing commander. “It actually began in March of last year (2017) and they held their first class here in December.” 

The building, which once served as the Incirlik High School, underwent the transformation by adding new technology and equipment, utilizing the new space to help support the mission of containing the various developmental classes for all Airmen in one central location. 

“Using this building allows us to keep continuity among courses,” said U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Dexter Robinson, 39th Force Support Squadron career assistance advisor, “I’m glad that all professional development offered by the wing is now available in one spot.

The new center is located at the old Incirlik High School,at building 2715 will be used by Airmen of all ranks instead of sitting vacant.

“We’ve taken a bit of adversity and turned it into success. This is going to make the base better ,” Eaglin said of the fresh change.
