|Publication Date:||10 January 2019|
This CFETP provides information necessary for Air Force Career Field Managers (AFCFM), MAJCOM Functional CMSgts MAJCOM Functional Managers (MFM), commanders, training managers, supervisors, trainers and certifiers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field training program. This plan outlines the training individuals in AFSC 2S0XX should receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career. This plan identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced, and proficiency training. In addition, the plan mandates specific functional contingency training required prior to deployment. 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 Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) Lackland TX. 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. Contingency training is a function of qualification training that readies Materiel Management Airmen to perform as prescribed by the unit type codes (UTC) and mission capability (MISCAP) statement. The CFETP has several purposes, some are:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate a career field training program. In addition, 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 in the specialty 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.
