AIR FORCE - CFETP 2W2X1 PART I AND II
|Publication Date:||1 June 2017|
The Nuclear Weapons CFETP provides information necessary for the 2W2X1 AFCFM, MFM's, commanders, training managers, supervisors and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field training program. The plan outlines the training that individuals in AFSC 2W2X1 must receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career. The 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 nuclear weapons technicians, this training is conducted by AETC at the 363rd Training Squadron, Sheppard AFB. Upgrade training identifies the mandatory courses, task/knowledge qualification requirements, and correspondence course requirements for award of the 3-, 5-, 7-, 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 skill and knowledge required to do the job. Advanced training is formal specialty training used for selected airman. 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 the training program. In addition, it helps supervisors identify training requirements so individuals receive training at the appropriate point in their career.
Identifies and documents task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level in the specialty and identifies education and training throughout each phase of an individual's career.
Lists training courses available, identifies sources of training, and the training delivery method.
Identifies major resource constraints that impact full implementation of the career field- training process.
