Education and Training
|Publication Date:||16 June 2017|
This CFETP provides the information necessary for AFCFMs, MAJCOM FMs, commanders, training managers, supervisors and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective and efficient career field training program. The plan outlines the training that individuals in this AFS should receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career. This plan identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced and proficiency training. IST is the AFS specific training an individual receives upon entry into the Air Force or upon retraining into this specialty for award of the 3- skill level. Normally, this training is conducted by AETC at one of the technical training centers. Upgrade training identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, and correspondence course completion requirements for award of the 3-,5-, 7-, 9-skill level. QT is actual hands-on task performance training designed to qualify an airman in a specific duty position. This training occurs both during and after the upgrade training process. It is designed to provide the performance skills and knowledge required to do the job. AT is formal specialty training used for selected airmen. Proficiency training is additional training, either in-residence or exportable advanced training courses, or OJT provided to personnel to increase their skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade. The CFETP has several purposes--some are:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate a career field training program. It is also used to help supervisors identify training at the appropriate point in an individual's career.
Identifies task and knowledge requirements for each skill level in the specialty and recommends education and training throughout each phase of an individual's career.
Lists training courses available in the specialty, identifies sources of training, and the training delivery method.
Identifies major resource constraints that impact full implementation of the desired career field training process.
