This CFETP provides the information necessary for the Air Force Career Field Manager (AFCFM), MAJCOM functional managers (MFMs), commanders, training managers, supervisors and trainers to plan, develop, manage and conduct an effective and efficient career field training program. The plan outlines the training that individuals in AFSC 1C4X1 must receive in order to develop and progress throughout their careers. For the purpose of this plan, training is divided into four areas: Initial skills, upgrade training (UGT), qualification training (QT) and continuation training (CT). Initial skills training is the Air Force Specialty (AFS) specific training an individual receives upon entering into the AFSC. This training is provided by 342 Training Squadron (TRS) at JBSA Lackland, TX. Upgrade training identifies the mandatory courses and task qualification requirements required for award of the 5-, 7-, and 9-skill level. Qualification training is hands-on task performance training designed to qualify an Airman in a specific dutyposition. This training program occurs both during and after the upgrade training process. It is designed to provide the performance skills/knowledge training required to do the job. Continuation training is additional training provided to 3-, 5-, 7-, and 9-level personnel to increase their skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade. The CFETP has several purposes, some of which are:
