Abstract:

The following are among the study results 1 The Telecommunications Operations AFS 291X0 career ladder is functionally arranged around tasks performed by job incumbents at different skill levels i.e., Apprentices, Specialists, Technicians, and Supervisors. Although 16 major job cluster and job type groups were identified there is a large number of common tasks performed by the members of all groups 2 Job progression relative to skill level and time in service reflects a shift from technical to supervisory tasks with increasing skill level and time in service. 3 AFM 39-1 Specialty Descriptions appeared to appropriately portray the tasks performed by job incumbents at each skill level. However, the specialty description for AFS 29130 and 29150 personnel makes no reference to Communications Security duties or responsibilities and 4 The task performance differences among technical school graduates and Direct Duty Assignment personnel during their first job assignment are minimal. An examination of the necessity for a 3-skill level resident course seems warranted.
