SAFMLS 2010
  • Air Force Professional Development
  • CMSgt Jerry Simmers

SAFMLS 2010

  • Overview
  • Welcoming Comments
  • And the winners are?
  • CFM MFM Responsibilities
  • Manning Issues
  • Training Issues
  • Questions / Comments


3
RSV

  • MRDSS is broke
  • We can no longer put both the Knowledge Level
    and Performance Level requirements in MRDSS
  • So I chose to track the Performance Level tasks
    in MRDSS that are tied to the UTCs
  • All 4 RSV items are still required at least to
    the knowledge level for all 4T0X1s and must be
    tracked by the individual labs tracker or AFTR
  • The AF Readiness folks are working on a solution


4
RSV for 4T0X1

  • Minimum currency levels have been set for many
    skills. These "proficiency standards" imply a
    level of activity sufficient to maintain skills,
    but do not necessarily denote competency.
  • 1. CLINICAL LAB EMEDS
  • 2. BLOOD SERVICES
  • a. Performs emergency blood collection
    procedures
  • b. Receives blood into facility
  • c. Thaws/deglycerolizes blood products
    (PACAF/USAFE)
  • 3. MICROBIOLOGY SERVICES
  • 4. BIOLOGICAL WARFARE (BW) TASKS


5

    process
  • Air Force leveling working with DPA
  • AFSC Consultant to HQ AFPC/DPA (assignments)
  • Sign-off on special duty, special coding (code
    50)
  • MAJCOM have some control of the process
  • They control spaces not by name requests
  • TTGs, cross-trainees and return from overseas
  • Command Leveling
  • BOP are the best option


6
CFM Responsibilities

    maintenance of CFETPs

    consultant for promotion test content and
    question validity inquires

    (prior experience)

MAJCOM FMs

MAJCOM FMs

  • Appointed by MAJCOM / SG with my input

    identifying SMEs and SKT rewrites

10
Manning and X-training

  • Under CAREERS 1st term Airman have better chances
    but its not guaranteed
  • Window for 4-year Airman 35 43 months
  • Window for 6-year Airman 59 67 months
  • If overseas 15- 9 months prior to DEROS
  • As the CFM I only approve Exceptions to the
    Policy (ETP) -- Non-1st term or NCORP
  • All cross-training packages are considered,
    however
  • Commissioning, special duty PME are more likely
    to be approved
  • The following is what I use to determine release
    for 4T
