Purpose of the CFETP.
This CFETP provides information necessary for the AFCFM, MFMs commanders, training managers, supervisors, trainers and certifiers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field training program. The plan outlines the training that individuals in the 4A0X1 specialty should receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career. This plan identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced, and proficiency training.
Initial Skills Training 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. For this AFSC, training is conducted by the Medical Education and Training Campus (METC) at Fort Sam Houston, TX.
Upgrade Training identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, and correspondence course completion requirements for award of the 5-, 7- and 9-skill levels.
Qualification Training is actual hands-on task performance training designed to qualify an airman in a specific duty position. This training program occurs both during and after the upgrade training process. It is designed to provide the performance skills/knowledge required to do the job.
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. Also, it helps supervisors identify training at the appropriate point in an individual's career.
Identifies task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level in the specialty and recommends education/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.
