PREFACE


1. The PRSG Professional Officer is required to meet and support the PRSG Command and
the PR Air National Guard needs during peace and war. This Career Field Education and
Training Plan (CFETP) identify desired training, education, and experience for
Professional Officers to progress from entry-level officer to squadron commander.
Beyond that, senior leaders of our career field will emerge based on the experience and
knowledge gained during this foundational part of their career. The CFETP provides a
description of time-phased education and training recommended for Professional
Officers for successful careers.

2. This CFETP consists of three parts that should be used by officers, commanders, and
supervisors to plan and manage all education and training needs, and guide the officer
through a recommended path of experience.

3. The guidance provided in this CFETP, along with the guidance of supervisors and
commanders should help ensure officers receive the right education, training, and
experience at the appropriate points in their careers. The education and training process,
as well as this plan, are designed to ensure we train today's work force for tomorrow's
challenges. This document is a dynamic tool and does not include every available
course relevant to the professional career field included in it. Each duty location will
provide unique opportunities for career enhancement through local education and
training avenues, and those opportunities should be fully exploited.

4. Each officer should use this plan to work with supervisors and commanders to determine
appropriate levels and timing of education and training, and ensure they have every
opportunity to attend identified courses. Every officer should take the initiative to
determine realistic milestones for achieving their goals. Completion of education,
training, and experience is a joint responsibility between the officer, their supervisor, and
commander.

5. Professional Development. Professional development continues throughout your career.
You should pursue opportunities for enhancing your performance as an officer and as a
professional.

6. Professional Military Education (PME). PME is vital to professional development. All
officers need to complete the PRNG Direct Appointment Officer Course (DAOC) or the
PRSG Military Institute, preferably in-residence, as soon as they are eligible.

7. Personal and Professional Growth. Personal and professional growth includes a
balance between the following areas: family, fitness, professional readings,
communication skills, professional associations, and community involvement. This
balance will shift throughout your career as you routinely reevaluate your goals.

4
8. Education and Training. Like professional development, education and training
continues throughout your career, whether it is technical or managerial.

9. Professional Continuing Education (PCE). PCE also enhances your technical and
managerial skills by keeping you current in your job. PCE courses can be obtained
through the different professional colleges, societies or organizations, institutes, colleges
or universities, or commercial training organizations.

10. Graduate Education. An appropriate graduate degree early in your career will enhance
your job performance and your value to the PRSG and the PRANG.

CAREER DEVELOPMENT

General I nformation:
“It is essential that you develop your career game plan and realize that it’s yours and your
responsibility to keep current. Ask advice from others as you develop it and then let your
bosses know what your aspirations are so that they can help you attain your career
objectives.”
Maj Gen Clifton D. Wright, former Director of Engineering and Services, HQ USAF

Purpose of the Career Field Education and Training Plan (CFETP).

This CFETP provides information for the Civil Engineer, Medical Corps, Dental Corps,
Nurse Corps, Chaplain, Judge Advocate, Emergency Managers, Security Forces and Fire
Protection occupational series. This plan outlines desired training, education, and
experience to chart and execute a career in those career fields--from entry-level officer
through squadron commander. The CFETP also provides officers, supervisors, and
commanders a means to jointly plan and program training and education opportunities.

Each officer should use this plan to work with supervisors and commanders to determine
appropriate levels and timing of education and training, and ensure they have every
opportunity to attend continual education courses. Every officer should take the initiative
to determine realistic milestones for achieving their goals. Completion of education,
training, and experience is a joint responsibility between the officer, their supervisor, and
commander.

Coordination and Approval. PRSG AF Operation and Training Officer (J-3) is the
coordinating authority for this document. Approval authority is the PRSG Commanding
General and the PRSG AF Group Commanding Officer.

LEADERSHIP AND SUPERVISION

1. Introduction. Leadership is an inherent responsibility of every military officer. Over
the ages many great military leaders have displayed their unique talents both on and off
the battlefields. All great leaders seem to understand and possess certain core values
(or principles), which help them navigate through the tough times of leadership.
Principles like honesty, integrity, commitment, enthusiastic energy, humility, faith and
vision.

2. One great example of what it takes to be an effective leader can be found in these words,
“BE A LEADER”:

B: BE BETTER than those you have admired and respected; the best way to pay
back those who have helped mentor your growth is to be better than even they
hoped you would be.

E: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED – You’ve been promoted because of your
proven potential to take on more responsibility. This brings with it a lot of
unforeseen, unexpected terrain. Be ready to take on whatever comes your way head
on; a true leader can afford to get surprised, but he/she can’t afford to let surprise
trip him/her up!

A: ACCOUNTABILITY – You will fly lead more than ever now, take the heat
for your mistakes and those of your team; give your team all the credit you can;
always provide top cover for your troops – even when it hurts.

L: LEARN/LOVE/LOOK AHEAD – Learn every day – it’s the key to not only
continuously improving, but sustaining yourself as the best of the best (which is
what those who follow you will expect/hope for). Love your troops and your family
– always keep your priorities here in clear focus; never neglect either one. Look
Ahead – you must constantly hone your vision for the future; without doing it, you
will be blind and worse yet, your troops will be too.

E: EXPERT – Never assume you are one, always strive to be one. Be prepared for
others to automatically expect you are one by virtue of your rank/position.


A: ATTITUDE & ACCUMEN – There is no substitute for a sustained positive,
proactive, and professional attitude -- especially when you must lead something
you don’t particularly agree with. There is also no substitute for looking and acting
like an all-pro at all times -- remember, a shiny penny catches the eye before a dull
one every time!

D: DOER – If you are not leading by doing, by example, then you’re not leading.
Never ask/task others to do anything you would not do yourself. Always consider
this before you levy the task.
7
E: EXCELLENCE is largely a function of mission success and what the people
you serve with think about you and your leadership; it’s never easy to do well in
both arenas consistently, but that’s what you must always strive for.

R: RESPECT comes with the grade that which really counts is what you earn!

3. Mentorship. A fundamental responsibility of leadership is to “grow” the next
generation of leaders. As a supervisor, you must mentor and counsel your subordinates,
assist them in developing well-defined goals, and ensure they are given realistic
feedback. Supervisors should use this plan to help their subordinates obtain a balance
of experience, education and training, and professional development. In addition to
providing mentorship, you should actively seek mentorship from your superiors and
more experienced peers, enlisted, and civilians.

4. Feedback. The officer, enlisted, and civilian promotion systems require formal
feedback sessions. Initial feedback to your subordinate establishes your expectations
for their performance. Follow on feedback sessions allow you to communicate to the
subordinate just how well they are meeting your expectations. Just as importantly, the
informal feedback you give your subordinates will enhance communication and help
improve job performance.

JAG Core Competencies:

Legal Information Mastery: the ability to obtain, analyze, and communicate legal
information rapidly. This extensive realm includes educating and training, researching,
managing electronic and other documents, transmitting analyses and advice to decision
makers, and processing JAG Corps analytical data. We analyze information and its
implications perceptively, use it creatively, and express it definitively.

Authoritative Counsel: the ability to provide decision makers at all levels with the
information and analysis they need to best evaluate options, assess risks, and make
informed decisions within the bounds of international law and domestic law and policy.
Advice and recommendations that are timely, accurate, balanced, ethical, and realistic and
that reflect the Air Force mission, doctrine, and culture help leaders to resolve complex
issues properly. Decisions based on authoritative counsel sustain the confidence of
American and foreign citizens in the integrity of the United States Air Force.

Compelling Advocacy and Litigation: the ability to advocate, negotiate, mediate, and
litigate in order to preserve command prerogatives so the Air Force can accomplish its
mission. In an increasingly litigious world, legal challenges to global military activities
continue to grow. We employ, advocate, and negotiate alternative dispute resolutions and
litigation measures aggressively and zealously to ensure that desired outcomes are attained.

Operational Readiness: the ability to provide the warfighter with a complete set of legal
capabilities at any place at any time. We maintain the skills necessary to survive and
operate wherever the Air Force goes and the expertise to provide necessary legal support
