AIR FORCE - CFETP 1S0X1 PARTS I AND II
|Publication Date:||20 July 2017|
This CFETP provides information necessary for Air Force Career Field Managers (AFCFMs), MAJCOM functional managers (MFMs), 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 must receive to develop and progress throughout their career. This plan identifies entry, initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced, and continuation 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. Normally, this training is conducted by AETC at one of the technical training centers.
Upgrade training identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, and correspondence course completion requirements for award of the 3-, 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 program occurs both during and after the upgrade training process. It is designed to provide the performance skills/knowledge required to do the job.
Advanced training is formal specialty training used for selected Airmen.
Continuation training provides additional training that exceeds minimum requirements with emphasis on present or future duty assignments.
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 has several purposes; some are:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate a career field training program. It is used to help supervisors identify training at the appropriate points in an individual's career.
Identifies task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level in this specialty and recommends education/training throughout each phase of an individual's career.
Lists training courses available in the specialty and identifies sources of training.
Identifies major resource constraints that impact full implementation of the desired career field-training program.
