Monica Sanchez: An educational specialist is here to provide counseling and service to the Airmen in the Air Force and help them move forward with their educational programs. Educational opportunities on an Air Force installation will range from basic learning skills all the way up to graduate level, and you'll be able to complete every single course you need on the military installation. That's a standard for almost every base.
