|Publication Date:||15 July 2016|
Purpose of the CFETP:
This CFETP provides information necessary for the PH CFM, PH MFMs, USAFSAM, commanders, training managers, supervisors, and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field training program. This plan outlines the training that individuals in the 4E0X1 AFSC will receive to develop and progress in the 4E career field. This plan identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced, and proficiency training.
Initial skills' training, conducted at USAFSAM, is the AFSC-specific training an individual receives upon entry into the 4E career field. Course graduates are awarded the 3-skill level.
Upgrade training identifies the mandatory courses, task-qualification requirements, Career Development Course (CDC) completion, correspondence course completion, core and duty tasks, retraining of duties, and minimum experience required 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 occurs both during and after the upgrade training process. It is designed to provide the knowledge, skill, ability, and confidence required to do the job.
Advanced training is formal specialty training provided to select airmen.
Proficiency training is additional training either through in-residence, exportable, or on-the-job provided to increase an airman's skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade.
