Case Exams, Open Continuous Announcements (Standing Registers) and 90-day Registers
ART positions are announced through the Special Examining Unit (SEU) on USAJOBS as “case exams” and “standing registers”. A case exam is a one-time announcement for a specific job at a specific location and is normally open for a 5 business day period. Open continuous announcements (Standing Registers) are the exception to case exams. They are established when there is a consistent need to maintain a pool of qualified applicants to fill possible various vacancies/locations. The SEU has annually and quarterly announced Standing Registers.
An Air Reserve Technician (ART) carries dual status, working as a full-time Department of Defense civil service employee and as Reservist performing the same job in an Air Force Reserve Command unit.
ARTs are full-time civilian employees who are required to serve as members of the Air Force Reserve one weekend a month and at least 14 days a year of annual training. On these weekend Unit Training Assemblies (UTAs) and during their annual two-week tour of duty, ARTs train with fellow reservists.
During the normal five-day workweek, ARTs perform as civilians, maintaining and operating reserve facilities in direct support of their unit.
