AIR FORCE - CFETP 1W0XX PARTS I AND II
|Publication Date:||1 March 2009|
This CFETP provides information necessary for AFCFMs, MFMs, commanders, training managers, supervisors and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field training program. Except where noted, this CFETP applies to active duty and reserve component (Guard and Reserve) enlisted members holding a 1W AFSC. This plan outlines the training individuals in this AFS should receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career. This plan identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, continuation, advanced, and MAJCOM unique 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. AETC conducts this training at Lackland AFB, TX, Keesler AFB, MS and Pope AFB, NC. Upgrade training identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, and correspondence course completion requirements for award of the 5-, 7-, and 9- skill levels. Qualification training is 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 and is designed to provide the performance skills and task knowledge required on the job. Continuation training is additional training, beyond the minimum required for upgrade, either in-residence, exportable, or OJT, to increase skills and knowledge, and support progression within an AFS. Advanced training is formal specialty training used to increase proficiency of selected airmen. The purposes of a CFETP include:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate a career field training program. Used by commanders and supervisors to identify training at the appropriate point in an Airman'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, and identifies sources of training and the training delivery method.
Identifies major resource constraints that impact full implementation of the optimal career field training process.
