|Publication Date:||15 April 2018|
The CFETP provides information necessary for the 4B0X1 AF Career Field Manager (AFCFM), 4B0X1 MAJCOM Functional Managers (MFMs), Commanders (CCs), Unit Training Managers (UTMs), supervisors, trainers and the USAFSAM Force Development Division (OED) to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective and efficient career field education and training program. The plan outlines training for 4B0X1 Airmen and will ensure development to progress and succeed in the career field. The plan identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced, proficiency, and continuation training.
The USAFSAM provides 4B0X1-specific initial skills training upon an individual's entry into the career field. The USAFSAM awards the 3-skill level to BE Apprentice (BEA) course graduates.
Upgrade training (UGT) identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, Career Development Course (CDC) completion, correspondence course completion, and minimum experience required to award the 5-, 7-, and 9-skill levels.
Qualification and/or job proficiency training (along with job experience) is hands-on task performance training designed to qualify an Airman in a specific duty position. This training can occur both during and after the UGT process. It provides the performance skills and knowledge training required to do the job.
Advanced training is formal course training that provides individuals who are qualified in one or more positions of their specialty with additional skills and knowledge to enhance their expertise in the career field. Training is for selected Career Airmen at the advanced level of their AFS.
Position qualification training is designed to qualify an Airman in a specific position. This training occurs after UGT.
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.
Continuation training is additional advanced training exceeding the minimum UGT requirements with emphasis on present or future duty assignments.
The CFETP has several purposes, including:
Serves as a management tool to plan, develop, manage, and conduct a career field training program. Also, ensures that established training is provided at the appropriate point in an individual's career.
Identifies task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level in the specialty and recommends training throughout each phase of an individual's career.
Lists training courses available in the specialty, identifies sources of the training, and provides the training medium.
Identifies major resource constraints that impact implementation of the desired career field training program.
