This Guide establishes the occupational structure of the Air Force enlisted force. The occupational structure is flexible to permit enlisted personnel to specialize and develop their skills and abilities while allowing the Air Force to meet changing mission requirements. Individual enlisted personnel have a joint responsibility with commanders and supervisors at all levels to fully develop their abilities consistent with Air Force needs and within the established patterns of specialization. This directory is written primarily for use by personnel officials (officers and senior noncommissioned officers) and agencies engaged in procurement, classification, and training of Air Force members. It implements Air Force Policy Directive (AFPD) 36-21, Utilization and Classification of Air Force Military Personnel. Refer to AFMAN 36-2100, Military Utilization and Classification, for military classification tenets and base level procedures. Maintain and dispose of records created as a result of prescribed processes in accordance with the Records Disposition Schedule (RDS) accessed from the web-based Records Information Management System. RELEASABILITY: There are no releasability restrictions on this publication.

SUMMARY OF REVISIONS

This is the official directory for all military enlisted classification descriptions, codes, and identifiers. Updates to this directory are according to the Air Force Career Field Managers’ Guide available at the myPers web site. This update contains all changes that have been approved and scheduled for implementation on 30 April 2020 and provides a Change Summary and Conversion Instruction Guide (CS&CIG) or Change Summary Guides (CSG), as necessary. Each CS&CIG will include a summary of each change, conversion instructions for all AFSC changes, mergers, additions, realignments, and deletions of classification identifiers, and appropriate page changes to the directory. Subsequent Change Summary Guides along with the description changes will be identified by the effective date and as an appendix to the CS&CIG for that particular conversion cycle. Additionally, minor changes and corrections throughout the publication include correcting spelling or editing errors. When a () precedes the specialty description or title, it denotes a major or significant revision from the previous edition – the reader must read the particular section of the publication in its entirety to determine the extent of the changed material.

1. Using This Directory:1.1. This directory contains a Change Summary and Conversion Instruction Guide (CS&CIG) for each update to the classification system, a Quick-Reference Guide, the Enlisted Classification Structure Chart to depict career progression through the specialties, Authorized Prefixes, Reporting Identifiers, Special Duty Identifiers, Air Force Specialty (AFS) descriptions, their assigned Air Force Specialty Codes (AFSC), Additional Mandatory Requirements for AFSC Entry, Special Experience Identifiers, and Chief Enlisted Manager (CEM) codes used in the enlisted classification system. Use the specialty descriptions and codes to identify different types of Air Force jobs and the qualifications of enlisted personnel to fill these jobs. Individual specialty descriptions and other attachments to this manual provide the occupational standards required or desired for successful performance in an AFS. Use these standards to procure, classify, and employ enlisted personnel; to develop career programs for initial training, retraining, and skill upgrade; and to structure unit manpower document (UMD) positions.1.2. Attachment 4, Additional Mandatory Requirements for AFSC Entry, contains a consolidated listing by AFSC of mandatory requirements and restrictions for AFSC entry or retraining. This listing includes AFSCs not open to non-United States citizens, AFSCs authorized for use without shredouts, combat-related AFSCs not open to enlisted women, minimum physical profiles, and strength and mental aptitude scores for AFSC entry or retraining.1.3. AFMAN 36-2100, Military Utilization and Classification, contains the procedural guidance for awarding and withdrawing classification codes, and tables that show the grade spread to skill-level relationship used in authorizing UMD positions. For procedural system guidance, refer to the Active Duty Personnel Services Delivery (PSD) Guide – Personnel Employment (Classification), the Active Duty Personnel Services Delivery (PSD) Guide – Special Experience Identifier (SEI) Process, and the Personnel Services Delivery (PSD) Guide –Air Force Specialty Code (AFSC) Conversion, for personnel; and AFI 38-201, Determining Manpower Requirements, for manpower.

The Special Warfare Enabler career field specialties within Special Warfare integrate with and accompany Special Warfare Career Field members (1Z) and teams to enable additional capabilities required for global access, precision strike, personnel recovery, command and control, and other multi-domain missions. Special Warfare Enablers are employed across the spectrum of conflict to extend Air Force air power and enhance its lethality. They operate within the joint and combined force to build partnerships, develop asymmetric advantages and engage the enemy inside its own region. They provide the connective tissue required to bind multiple domains; focusing the integration of air, space, cyber and land issues through the lens of airpower from the ground up and delivering distinctive capability and expertise in any operating environment with unequaled lethality, accuracy, responsiveness, flexibility and persistence. Special Warfare Enabler airmen may be employed alone or as part of a Special Warfare, Air Force, joint, interagency, or coalition force in support of Combatant Commander’s objectives. They are capable of rapid deployment during day or night, to any environment, including permissive, hostile, denied, or politically and/or diplomatically sensitive locales. They operate in all six geographic disciplines: mountain, desert, arctic, urban, jungle, and water. They may operate under austere conditions for extended periods.

SPECIAL WARFARE CAREER FIELD (1Z)

Introduction (Established 31 Oct 19)

The specialties included in the Special Warfare Career Field form the Air Force's premier ground maneuver element. The Airmen of Special Warfare are employed across the spectrum of conflict to extend Air Force air power and enhance its lethality. They operate within the Joint and Combined Force to build partnerships, develop asymmetric advantages and engage the enemy inside its own region. They provide the connective tissue required to bind multiple domains; focusing the integration of air, space, cyber and land issues through the lens of airpower from the ground up and delivering distinctive capability and expertise in any operating environment with unequaled lethality, accuracy, responsiveness, flexibility and persistence. This career field includes the functions and activities of global access, precision strike and personnel recovery. Global access includes special operations designed to prepare the environment and establish physical or cyber access to forward battlespaces for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR), forward air lodgment, proxy development, air infrastructural development, target development, and asymmetric effects to accomplish the supported commander’s tactical, operational and strategic goals. Precision strike encompasses terminal attack control, managing a variety of non-kinetic effects as well as kinetic fires from land, maritime and air based platforms to achieve the supported commander’s desired battlefield effects. Personnel Recovery involves all efforts designed to recover and reintegrate any designated individuals who become isolated from friendly control. A significant subset of PR is performing the same actions for sensitive equipment that could be harmful to the United States, or our Allies should it fall in the wrong hands. Special Warfare airmen may be employed alone or as part of a Special Warfare, Air Force, joint, interagency, or coalition force in support of Combatant Commander’s objectives. They are capable of rapid deployment during day or night, to any environment, including permissive, hostile, denied, or politically and/or diplomatically sensitive locales. They operate in all six geographic disciplines: mountain, desert, arctic, urban, jungle and water. The career field may operate under austere conditions for extended periods.
