This CFETP provides information necessary for the AFCFM, MAJCOM Functional Managers (MFMs), commanders, training managers, supervisors and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct effective career field training program. The CFETP is certified and managed by the AFCFM. An annual review of the CFETP is conducted to ensure currency and accuracy. This 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. 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 our career field, this training is provided by Air Force Mobility Command through the United States Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM), Wright-Patterson AFB, OH. Upgrade Training (UGT) identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, and correspondence course completion requirements for 3-, 5-, and 7-skill levels. Qualification Training (QT) is actual hands-on task performance training designed to qualify and Airman in a specific duty position. This training program occurs both during and after the UGT process. It is designed to provide the performance skills/knowledge required to do the job. Advanced Training (AT) is formal specialty training used for selected Airmen. Proficiency Training (PT) is additional training, either in-residence or on-the-job training, provided to personnel to increase their skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade training. The CFETP also serves the following purposes:
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.
