Purpose of the CFETP.
This CFETP provides information that the Air Force Career Field Functional Manager (AFCFM), career field managers, commanders, training specialists, supervisors and trainers need to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field training program. It outlines the training that individuals in this AFS should receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career life-cycle. It identifies initial skill requirements (a standardized audition process for entry into the career field and 3-skill level attainment requirements while assigned to the Air Force basic military training environment), and delineates follow-on upgrade, qualification, and proficiency training. Upgrade training includes all mandatory qualification requirements for award of the 3-, 5-, 7-, and 9-skill levels. Qualification training is actual hands-on task performance training designed to prepare an airman for a specific duty position. This training program occurs both during and after the upgrade training process. It is designed to provide the performance skills and knowledge required to do the job. Proficiency training is additional training provided to personnel to increase their skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade. The CFETP also serves the following purposes:
As a management tool to plan, conduct, and evaluate a career field training program, and to assist supervisors in identifying training at the appropriate point in an individual's career.
Identifies task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level in the specialty.
Lists mandatory and optional training material available in the specialty.
Identifies resource constraints that impact full implementation of the desired career field training process.
