Air Force Training

This CFETP is a comprehensive education and training document that identifies life-cycle qualification, education and training requirements, training support resources, and minimum core task requirements for this specialty. The CFETP will provide personnel a clear career path to success and will instill rigor in all aspects of career field initial training.

The CFETP consists of two parts; officers, supervisors, commanders and trainers use both parts to plan, manage, and control training within the career field.

Part I provides information necessary for overall management of the specialty. Section A explains how everyone will use the plan; Section B identifies career field progression information, duties and responsibilities, training strategies, and career field path; Section C associates each level with specialty qualifications (knowledge, education, training, and other); and, Section D indicates resource constraints. Some examples are funds, manpower, equipment, and facilities. Section E explains documentation at each level of training.

Part II includes the following: Section A identifies the Specialty Training Standard (STS) and includes duties, tasks, and technical references to support initial qualification training (IQT). Air Education and Training Command (AETC) conducted training, wartime course and core task and correspondence course requirements. Section B contains the course objective list and training standards supervisors will use to determine if officers have satisfied training requirements. Section C identifies available support materials. An example is a Qualification Training Package (QTP), which may be developed to support upgrade or proficiency training; these packages are available at the e-Publishing website, Section D identifies a training course index supervisors can use to determine resources available to support training. Included here are both mandatory and optional courses; Section E identifies MAJCOM unique training requirements supervisors
