This CFETP provides information necessary for the Air Force Career Field Manager (AFCFM), MAJCOM functional managers, commanders, training managers, supervisors, trainers, and the applicable AETC training wing to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field education and training program. This plan outlines training individuals must receive to develop and progress throughout their career. This plan identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced, and continuing education and training. Initial skills training are the Air Force specialty (AFS) specific training an individual receives upon entry and/or retraining in this specialty. For our career field, this training is provided by AETC, 344 TRS at JBSA-Lackland, TX. Upgrade training (UGT) identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, and correspondence course completion required for award of the 3, 5, 7, and 9 skill levels. Qualification training (QT) 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/knowledge required to do the job. Advanced training is formal Air Force Specialty training used for selected Airmen. Proficiency training is additional training, either in-residence or exportable advanced training courses, or on-the-job training (OJT), provided to personnel to increase their skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade.
