Best to read the first at URL below also so here is the last half...
F-35 program maturing at Eglin 22 Mar 2014 LAUREN SAGE REINLIE / Daily News

"...While pilots will continue to train at Eglin — officials expect capacity to be about 100 pilots a year — the schoolhouse will become the “center of the universe” for maintenance training, as the F-35 program’s executive officer has said.

Eglin will be the sole maintenance training facility for all branches and partner nations, Smith said. The program expects to graduate about 2,000 maintainers a year.

He said the facilities are in place to manage the new load of students. About 950 are expected to go through the course this year, double that of 2013.

As the program continues to ramp up, improvements will be added as needed, Smith said.

In other changes, the Marines squadron at Eglin is set to begin moving to Marines Corps Air Station Beaufort in South Carolina in June.

Of the about 1,800 F-35 personnel at Eglin, about 140 are with the Marines squadron, VMFAT-501. The entire squadron should be moved to Beaufort by next January.

The Marines will take their 14 F-35B models with them.

Currently, Eglin has 43 aircraft. Some may be leaving during the shifts.

The base can house up to 59 F-35s, Smith said.

The international partners also will be moving to other bases. The U.K will go with the Marines squadron and the Dutch are headed for Luke Air Force Base in Arizona, which is working to stand up the Air Force’s first operational squadron."
