Abstract:

Air Force Regulation AFR 93-3, Air Force Civil Engineering Prime Base Engineer Emergency Force BEEF Program, establishes the training program for Prime BEEF Contingency Force teams. This thesis was designed to determine if this training program provides adequate and realistic training with regard to contingency and wartime taskings. The perception of key base level civil engineering managers concerning the status of training requirements as well as the coverall Prime BEEF Contingency Force program were drawn from survey questionnaire responses. The survey population included the CONUS Base Civil Engineers, Chiefs of Operations, and Prime BEEF Managers as well as the non-CONUS Base Civil Engineers. The results of this study indicated that the training program does not adequately prepare the teams for contingency and wartime tasking, and that the training is not realistic. Additionally, it was determined that the Prime BEEF program is not the highest priority of the CONUS Base Civil Engineering organization. Also, the training requirements established in AFR 93-3 are not presented in the order of importance needed to adequately prepare Prime BEEF Contingency Force 1, 2, and 3 teams for contingency and wartime taskings.
