How Does It Work? First term airmen apply under the Quality Retraining Program No matter what your AFSC and manning are, you can still apply to retrain. This program focuses on a quality basis, not on a first come, first serve basis. Retraining selection is a competitive process. Your retraining package is prioritized according to the following: - Most recent EPR - Current grade/projected grade - Next two EPRs - Date of rank/TAFMSD - AQE scores (can be retaken) Second term and career airmen can apply under the NCO Retraining Program (NCORP) at any time. The purpose of the NCORP is to balance the enlisted force through selective retraining of SSgts-MSgts from overage AFSCs to AFSCs experiencing shortages. This can result in involuntary retraining of second term and career airmen. Know when to apply!

MPF MAJCOM AFPC AFPC Retraining Board Determines Selection * Board convenes 3rd week each month. * Reviews all submissions. * Makes selection based on records, suitability, etc. * Non-selectees are resubmitted next two boards. Be flexible with job choices. Consider other job opportunities. The more choices you provide the better the chances of getting something you want. Know what jobs are available during your retraining window. If your dream job isnt available at that time, either wait to see if it becomes available later or consider another job. Make sure you are suitable for the position. Do you meet the criteria for the job you are applying for? If not, look for alternatives. If youre selected, youre on your way to a new Air Force Career.
