Abstract:

From missile systems maintainers to telephone switching specialists, from avionics technicians to biomedical equipment personnel, the US Air Force employs more than 50,000 worker-level primary 5-skill level personnel who require electronic principles EP training. These highly skilled, technically trained airmen work in over 80 Air force specialties AFSs spanning 11 career fields. Furthermore, the depth and breadth of required EP training varies based on specialty needs. In short, the USAF spends vast amounts of money, manpower, and time to ensure that airmen are properly trained in electronic principles. To make the best use of these resources, the USAF Common Electronics Training Program CETP was designed to consolidate and standardize Air Force EP training where possible and practical. This is primarily accomplished through special EP courses taught at four USAF Technical Training Centers TTCs. These EP courses teach the electronic principles common to two or more AFSs. Another part of the CETP is the development of common training modules. Specific blocks of EP instruction are developed by one TTC, then shared with the other TTCs which teach that EP subject. By selectively combining and standardizing Air Force EP training, the USAF makes best use of limited training resources.
