Purpose of the CFETP.
The CFETP provides information necessary for the AFCFM, commanders, UTMs, supervisors, and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct effective and efficient career field training programs. This plan outlines training requirements an individual in this AFS should receive in order to develop and progress through their career. This plan identifies initial skills, upgrade qualification, advanced and proficiency training. Individuals receive initial skills training upon entry into the career field. Upgrade training identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, and correspondence courses required for award of the 5-, 7-, and 9-skill levels. These courses are provided to personnel to increase the skill and knowledge required for upgrade. 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 and knowledge required to do the job. Advanced training is formal specialty training. Proficiency training is additional training, either in-residence or exportable advanced training courses, or on-the-job training provided to personnel to increase their skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade. The CFETP:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate the 3F1X1 career field training program. It is used to help supervisors identify training requirements throughout an individual's career.
Identifies task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level in the specialty and recommends education and training throughout each phase of an individual's career.
Lists training courses available in the specialty, identifies sources of training, and provides the training method.
Identifies major resource constraints that impact full implementation of the desired career field training process.
