New appointment system: The Fort Bragg Education Center has set up an appointment system to service all education counseling needs. The new convenient appointment system allows patrons to have a scheduled appointment time to meet with an education counselor.
Once an appointment is confirmed, the patron will receive an email and a reminder email 24 hours before the appointment. The confirmation email will have a link to either cancel or reschedule an appointment if neccessary.
Walk-in services will continue to be available to enroll in the Basic Skills Education Program and this system will not be used for testing appointments.
Appointments are scheduled for a 30-minute timeframe and may be scheduled at https://bookfbtec.timetap.com. Contact the Fort Bragg Education Center for more information at 396-6721, 908-0927 or usarmy.bragg.imcom-atlantic.mbx.bragg-education-center@mail.mil.
