AIR FORCE - CFETP 1N8X1 PARTS I AND II
|Publication Date:||16 September 2019|
Air Force Career field managers (AFCFM), commanders, training managers, supervisors, trainers and the training wing use this CFETP to plan, develop, manage, and conduct an effective career field training program. This plan outlines the training individuals in AFSC 1N8X1 must receive to develop and progress throughout their careers. It identifies initial skills, upgrade, qualification, advanced and continuation training requirements. 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. AETC provides this training at Goodfellow AFB, TX for AFSC 1N8X1. Upgrade training identifies the mandatory courses, task qualification requirements, CDPs, and exportable training courses required for award of the 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 provides the performance skills/knowledge training 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 also serves the following purposes:
Serves as a management tool to plan, manage, conduct, and evaluate a career field-training program. It also helps 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.
Identifies major resource constraints, which impact, full implementation of the desired career field training process.
