AIR FORCE - CFETP 2F0X1 PARTS I AND II
|Publication Date:||1 September 2017|
The CFETP provides information for the CFM, AFIMSC, commanders, training managers, supervisors, and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct effective career field training programs. This plan outlines the training individuals within the fuels AFS receive to develop and progress throughout their career. It identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced, and proficiency training. Initial skills training (3-skill level) is the AFS training an Airman receives upon entry into the Air Force or retraining into a specialty. AETC conducts this training at one of the technical training centers. Upgrade training identifies 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 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 provided to select Airmen. Proficiency training is additional in-residence or exportable advanced training courses or on-the-job training to increase personnel skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade. The CFETP also serves the following purposes:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate a career field training program. Also, 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 and training during 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 impacting full implementation of the desired career field training process.
