Serving the Present... Remembering the Past...
Air Force Weather



by Maj Mark A. Sellers, Chief, Training Requirements Branch

    Headquarters Air Force Weather Agency (AFWA), Air and Space Sciences Directorate, Training Division is making great strides to standardize training for the weather career field.  The Training Division is broken down into a Technical Training Branch (DNTT) and Training Requirements Branch (DNTR).  DNTT has developed standardized Qualification Training Packages (QTPs) on 10 core subjects critical to successful weather forecasting.  These QTPs must be completed prior to weather personnel getting their    5-skill level and by second lieutenants new to the career field.  Each QTP contains a trainee workbook, trainer’s guide, and evaluation pamphlet.  DNTT has deployed teams of 4 personnel to some of the Operational Weather Squadrons (OWS) to help with the development of training programs for the new Initial Skills Course graduates and has been active at regional training workshops hosted by MAJCOMS.  DNTR is working hand-in-hand with the acquisition side of Air Force Weather (AFW), contractors, and other agencies to meet career field training needs for all newly procured hardware and software weather systems.  DNTR coordinates manpower, funding, and scheduling for mobile training teams as systems get fielded plus designs and develops user manuals, precursor materials, training videos, computer-based training packages (CD-ROM), and interactive courseware.  Training is key to AFW reengineering becoming a success.  HQ AFWA Training Division is at the pulse of this exciting change.
