Q: How do I get to the OKRTI? My welcome letter says 6500 N Kelley, where am I supposed to be?
A: Here are directions and maps for finding the OKRTI. If you are traveling by air, you should arrange to fly into Will Rogers World Airport in OKC. Except during our Annual Training period, there is no military shuttle providing transportation from the airport to the OKRTI campus.
Most training and meetings take place in the Education Center. Go to the Education Center if you are still not sure where you’re supposed to be once you arrive on campus. If you arrive after normal duty hours, report to the Billeting Desk. However, keep in mind that the billeting desk is not manned 24 hours a day.
Here is a detailed map of the OKRTI campus.

Q: What resources are provided when I reserve OKRTI classrooms?
A: Each classroom includes access to audio-visual equipment such as an instructor computer workstation, overhead projector, DVD/VCR player, etc. See the Education Center page for details on what is available in specific classrooms.
