NOTE: The Online re-training advisory changes often and sometimes daily.  For exact information and numbers go to the MyPers website. This table is updated when possible.

Purpose of retraining:

AFI 36-2626, 2.1. Retraining Purpose. Retraining is a force management program used primarily to balance the enlisted career force across all AFSCs and ensure sustainability of career fields. Retraining also provides a means to return disqualified airmen to a productive status. Additionally, the program allows a limited number of Airmen the opportunity to pursue other career  paths within the AF. The AF encourages Airmen to voluntarily retrain first, however, the needs of the AF may require Airmen to be involuntarily retrained to meet sustainment objectives.

FAQs:

  • How many AFSCs can I request to retrain into?

You may request up to 5 AFSCs.

 

  • Is it required to choose 5?

No. But choosing multiple AFSCs greatly increases the Airman’s possibility of receiving approved retraining. 


  • I am projected for promotion, do apply for shortages in my current or projected rank? 
The applicant must apply for shortages in the projected grade.


  • How long do I have to obtain the correct retainability?

30 days of notification. Failure to obtain the required retainability may result in cancellation of approved retraining. 

Understanding the Application Status:

"1"

The Application Status is systematically established as “1” when a Retraining Application is 

inserted by AFPC/DPTOS

"3"

Once AFPC/DPTOS reviews the application, processes the retraining 

notes and enters remarks, or when AFPC inserts the application, the status changes to “3.” 

"5"

After AFPC reviews the applicant’s record, processes the waivers with the notes and enters an approval date, the application status is changed to “5.”

"6"

Once a class date is provided to the 

applicant using TRQI AJ1J or AMD0, the application status is updated to “6” and the Training 

Assigned Flag is set to “Y.”

"7"

See Below

"8"

See Below

1 – AFPC Processing | 2 - HAF & AFPC Processing | 3 - AFPC/DPTOS Processing | 4 - Disapproved | 5 - Approved - Awaiting Class Seat | 6 - Approved | 7 - Cancelled | 8 - Training Rescheduling  | 9 - Retraining Completed

-If AFPC/DPTOS cancels the AJ1J or AMD0 TRQI associated class, the application status reverts back to a “5”, but the Training Assigned Flag remains a “Y.” When the training is again issued for TRQI AJ1J or AMD0 the Retraining Application is updated back to a “6.

-When the class/course owner changes a class associated with the Retraining Application, the application status changes to “8.” This application status alerts the Retraining OPR via the TR of the change and allows return of the Airman’s status to a valid class date. Upon doing so, the status is updated back to 6. If the entire retraining application is cancelled, then the status is updated to “7.” Once an Airman graduates or eliminates from the TRQI AJ1J or AMD0 training class, the status is updated to “9” and the application is moved to history

Automatic Retraining Disqualifying Factors:

  • Under investigation by OSI or law enforcement officials. 
  • No access to IAW AFI 33-115, Vol 2, Licensing Network Users and Certifying Network Professionals. 

  • Have less than a 3 on the most recent EPR.
  • Ineligible for promotion or reenlistment.
  • Has assignment limitation code "L".

  • Currently in a retraining status or not recommended for entry into upgrade training.
  • Failure of current fitness score.

Overview :

Information for enlisted personnel interested in voluntary retraining in a deployed location. Various types medical clearances and options if member are unable to complete their paperwork while deployed.

 

Exception to Policy:

Procedures

Letter

General Info :

When you apply for voluntary retraining there are many documents required to determine if you are qualified for that AFSC (interviews, aptitude tests, medical clearance, and many others). Some can be accomplished while deployed but not always. 

Some AFSCs, at a minimum, require a AF Form 422, Physical Profile Serial Report. This form can be approved/signed off at your home station medical records section. Other types of medical clearances include, Flying Class III, Flying Class II, (Flight Surgeon Duties), FCIIU (RPA Pilot), ground based controller (GBC), RPA Sensor Operator (1U0X1), and Space and Missile Operations Duty (SMOD)

Note:

  

Deployed Overseas Medical Limitations

In a deployed location, services to complete a 422 or other medical clearances are limited to the equipment on hand and human resources. This can be an obstacle when pursuing a voluntary retraining before or during a deployment.

 

Option :

If you have contacted your home station and cannot complete any or all of your requirements do not get discouraged. AFI 36-2626, Airman Retraining Program does allow Airmen to complete all retraining actions no later than 45 days after return to the home station. If additional time is needed, you can apply/process an Exception to Policy Letter that will be considered for items you are unable to complete.
