Purpose of the CFETP.
This CFETP provides information necessary for Air Force Career Field Managers (AFCFMs), MAJCOM functional managers (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 AFSC 2A7X5 should receive 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 Air Force or upon retraining into this specialty for award of the 3-skill level. This training is conducted by AETC at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, FL. Upgrade training identifies the 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 program occurs both during and after the upgrade training process. It is designed to provide the performance skills/knowledge required to do the job. Advanced training is formal specialty training used for selected Airmen. Proficiency training is additional training, either in-residence or exportable advanced training courses, or on-the-job training, provided to personnel to increase their skills and knowledge beyond the minimum required for upgrade. The CFETP has several purposes; some are:
To serve as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate a career field training program. It is also used to help supervisors identify training at the appropriate point in an individual's career.
To identify task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level in the specialty and recommends education/training throughout each phase of an individual's career.
To list training courses that are available in the specialty and identifies sources of training and the training delivery method.
To identify major resource constraints that impact full implementation of the desired career field training process.
