|Publication Date:||20 September 2016|
This CFETP provides information necessary for the Air Force Career Field Manager (AFCFM), MAJCOM Functional Managers (MFMs), commanders, training managers, supervisors, and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective and efficient 1C5X1 career field training program. The plan outlines the training that individuals must receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career. For the purpose of this plan, training is divided into four areas: initial skills, upgrade training (UGT), qualification training (QT), and continuation training (CT). Initial skills training is the Air Force Specialty (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. Upgrade training 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 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 training required for the job. Continuation 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. The CFETP also serves other purposes, to include the following:
Serves 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.
Identifies task and knowledge training requirements for each skill level in this 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 medium.
Identifies major resource constraints that impact full implementation of the desired career field training program.
