This CFETP provides information necessary for the Biomedical Sciences Corps (BSC) Associate Chief (43AX), AFMSA/SG3PT, AOP Lead Command (AETC/A3FM), MAJCOM AOP Program Managers, AOP Flight Commanders, and the United States School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM) Aerospace Physiology Division (FEP) to plan, develop, and manage career field education and training. The CFETP outlines the required education, training, and experience individuals in the 43AX AFS must attain for skill level progression (see Table 2.1.). For purposes of this plan, training is divided into Initial skills (entry-level) and upgrade training. Initial skills training is mandatory training for all officers, and is usually conducted by USAFSAM/FEP faculty. Upgrade training (UGT) identifies the mandatory in-residence courses, educational requirements, and experience requirements for award of the 43A3 AFS (fully qualified). IAW AFI 36-2201, Air Force Training Program, the CFETP is the primary document used to outline training requirements at appropriate points in an officer's career. Failure to progress in training IAW this CFETP can result in a Commander's recommendation to withdraw the member from training and from the AFS. The CFETP also lists assignment-specific training that is required for AOP officers to increase their knowledge and skills beyond the minimum required for upgrade to prepare them to conduct assignment and/or mission-specific duties.
