On a more less pulling your chain path of discussion the unit requiring Special Experience Identifier 914 on all Unit Manning Documents, particularly at a Air Guard Unit does not correlate the SIE being a AFSC core skill and knowledge requirement.This was done as an effort to get a jumpstart on plussing up the numbers after all the slots were converted to SEI914 slots.
How about this award and retention of TACP AFSC criteria found in the AFECD: "220.127.116.11. Must maintain eligibility to deploy and mobilize worldwide. Personnel with an Assignment Limitation Code of C-1 or C-2 may retain AFSC 1C4X1 as long as they are capable of successfully completing all core tasks in the 1C4X1 Career Field Education and Training Plan. " reference http://specialtactics.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/ubb/download/Number/6/filename/AFECD-Apr 14-TACP.pdf.I was not aware of that.
Why is a C-2 code such a show stopper for you?How about this award and retention of TACP AFSC criteria found in the AFECD: "18.104.22.168. Must maintain eligibility to deploy and mobilize worldwide. Personnel with an Assignment Limitation Code of C-1 or C-2 may retain AFSC 1C4X1 as long as they are capable of successfully completing all core tasks in the 1C4X1 Career Field Education and Training Plan.

TACP is the "only" enlisted Battlefield Airman AFSC currently allowing individuals with an Assignment Limitation Code of C-1 or C-2 may retain AFSC stipulation. It correlates to AFI 10-203 Duty limitations policy of "22.214.171.124. Duty limitations associated with pregnancy may require temporary removal from certain AFSC duties. Retraining will not be required. " AND other managing pregnant airman policies. It is also the only enlisted AFSC in the AFECD having such policy stipulation.
BTW the all the battlefield airman AFSC classification description can be found at http://specialtactics.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/6/Selected_AFECD_and_AFOCD_speci.html#Post6
It's not a show stopper but rather an availability of trained and qualified combat mission ready capability concern. It gets more of a concern when how much training time is needed after medical condition causing the medical condition is resolved. Although not an absolute will happen reality, typically a medical condition causing a not qualified to perform duties of AFSC and not mission ready qualified available for six months or longer generally drives a MEB for involuntary retraining into another AFSC or involuntary medical separation for Pararescue, CCT and presumable for Special Operations Weather. One of the causals resulting in origin implementation of SOW AFSC is that combat weather parachutist positions have been open to women and have had women in those positions since 1993.Why is a C-2 code such a show stopper for you?
It does not. It was never validated as an occupational standard and if it was the must be tested to this standard would be implanted in other policies that comply with occupational specific fitness standards policies of DOD Instruction 1308.3 and AFI 36-2905 .For example, we have a 20km ruck with a minimum of 90# total weight that must be completed annually. I'm not sure if this qualifies as a core task, ...
We are victims of the exact same thing.We need to do a better job of documenting and educating on what the AFSC needs and what the official standards should be. Having dedicated officers helps, but it's going to take time for that train to catch up to itself and allow significant change. There's a lot of frustration in the careerfield right now, and some even think we will be abolished as an AFSC within the next 10 years.
Longer than that. 9 months to get to term to delivery the baby, six more months (180 days) of post child birth (after completion of pregnancy) physical fitness test waiver and then the time to do all the requalification training. 18 months at minimum.But a female getting pregnant takes her out of the operational game for 12 months, period. That's a serious issue.
