Abstract:

Survey Coverage The Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration HVACR career ladder, AFSC 3E1X1, was surveyed to gather data needed to guide the development and evaluation of training. This survey includes all three components - Active Duty AD, Air National Guard ANG, and Air Force Reserve Component AFRC. Career Ladder Structure Structure analysis identified one cluster and three jobs General HVACR Cluster MobilityContingency Job Air Water Distribution Systems Job and Supervisor Job. Career Ladder Progression Personnel entering the career ladder complete the initial technical training course, J3ABR3El3 1-003 HVACR Apprentice. This course is 17 weeks long and is conducted at Sheppard AFB, TX. AFSC 3E1Xl AD personnel follow a typical career progression pattern that includes a decrease in technical task performance and an increase in supervisory performance at the 7-skill level, and performance of almost exclusively supervisory and managerial tasks at the 9-skill level. Training Analysis Matching survey data to the AFSC 3E1X1 Specialty Training Standard STS revealed that the document is very well supported by survey respondents - no performance-coded elements were found to be performed by fewer than 20 percent of first-term personnel. Likewise, the Plan of Instruction POI is very well supported, with all elements meeting the standard criterion of 30 percent performance by first-term airmen. On the other hand, a number of tasks were identified that are being performed by more than 20 percent of first-term airmen but which are not referenced to the STS.
