AIR FORCE - CFETP 1C7X1 PARTS I AND II
|Publication Date:||1 September 2017|
This CFETP provides information necessary for the AFCFM, 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 in this AFS should receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career. This 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 AF or upon retraining into this specialty for award of the 3-skill level. UGT identifies the mandatory courses and task qualification 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 UGT process. It is designed to provide the performance skills and knowledge required to do the job. 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, which include:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct and evaluate a career field's training program. It is used to help supervisors identify training at the appropriate point in an individual's career.
Identifies task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level and recommends education/training throughout each phase of an individual's career.
Lists training courses available in the specialty, identifies sources of training and the training delivery method.
Identifies major resource constraints, which impact full implementation of the desired career field training process.
