Lodging may be available on Eglin AFB, however, it is 4.5 miles from the schoolhouse, so transportation will be an issue for both on-base and off-base lodging.  Please plan accordingly.  Note, also, that walking from the eastern to western sides of Eglin is prohibited; a POV or rental vehicle is highly recommended.  PCSing members should have their admin request an Order Modification to include a rental vehicle. TAD members should coordinate with their admin in procuring transportation.  Call ahead to secure lodging on-base, as they fill up quickly.

On-base lodging is available at:

White Sands Inn, Eglin AFB – 5.7 miles               (885-882-5025)
Commando Inn, Hurlburt Field – 11.9 miles       (850-884-7115)
Duke Inn, Duke Field – 14.9 miles                         (850-682-2918)

On-base lodging is available at:

JSF Barracks, Eglin AFB             (850-883-4655)
EOD Barracks, Eglin AFB            (850-883-1363)


It is highly recommended that all students obtain travel advances prior to detaching from previous commands.  The PSD Pensacola system is backlogged and reimbursement payments can take an extended period of time to be distributed.  All documents above are required in order to properly perform your in-process check-in and get your pay items set up.  Government Travel Charge Card usage is authorized during travel while executing TAD/PCS orders.


Uniforms shall be neat and clean in appearance and not soiled during your stay; uniform inspections shall be conducted by instructors.  Uniform availability on Eglin AFB is limited, and the closest full-service Marine uniform shop is 52 miles away in Pensacola, please ensure you bring appropriate uniform items with you as they are required during your stay at CNATT Det Eglin.  Uniforms required are Woodland Utilities, Service Alpha/Bravo (Seasonal), and Green on Green PT uniforms.


During the length of the class, we will PT three times per week, and we will also be conducting check-in and checkout CFT and PFT. The only authorized attire during PT are standard issued Green on Green PT uniforms.


Finally, if you are attending this course and already have an ALIS ID assigned through your command, please contact us to provide that ALIS ID.  If you do not, you will be assigned a new ID here, to which all training completed at Eglin will be submitted.  In essence, you will only be qualified on the ID you get here and any previous quals/training attached to your command ALIS ID will not be included.
