Abstract:

This report presents the results of a detailed Air Force occupational survey of the Aerospace Ground Equipment career ladder AFS 423X5. The survey identified seven job clusters, 31 job types within those clusters, and one independent job type. Nearly half of the job inventories fell into an AGE mechanics cluster and performed fairly similar jobs, although some specialized in certain kinds of AGE maintenance. Other job groups included nonpowered AGE mechanics, AGE servicing and dispatch personnel, TACS power generation personnel, supply personnel, NCOIC, quality controllers, and instructors. First enlistment personnel maintained 13 different types of AGE including generators, air compressors, air conditioners, heaters, bomb lifts, hydraulic test stands, and nonpowered AGE. In addition, first-termers used eight different kinds of test equipment. The 423X5 Specialty Training Standard thoroughly covered virtually all tasks career ladder members perform.
