Purpose of the CFETP.
This CFETP provides information for the AFCFM, RI Manager, MFMs, commanders, training managers, supervisors and trainers to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field training program. This plan outlines the training individuals in this RI should receive in order to develop and progress throughout their career. This plan identifies initial skills, qualification, advanced, and proficiency training. Initial skills training is the RI specific training an individual receives upon entry into the Air Force or upon retraining into this RI. Normally, this training is conducted by AETC at one of the technical training centers. Qualification training is actual hands-on task performance training designed to qualify an Airman in a specific duty position. 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. The CFETP has several purposes, some are:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate a career field training program. Also, it is used to help supervisors identify training at the appropriate point in an individual's career.
Identifies task and knowledge training requirements in the specialty and recommends education/training throughout each phase of an individual's career.
Lists training courses available for the specialty, identifies sources of training, and the training delivery method.
