3. MST PROGRAMS AND PROCEDURES FOR ENLISTED PERSONNEL

3.1. AIT Reporting Statement and Procedure.

                3.1.1. Except in an emergency, prior to speaking to an Officer, SNCO, NCO or Civilian, AIT will go to the position of attention, salute (as required), and  state, ?rank/name or sir/ma?am, Airman ________ reports?. Note: AIT will salute when reporting to a commissioned officer of higher rank and hold the                  salute until it is returned by the officer.                

                                3.1.1.1 Example 1: "Colonel Smith, Airman Jones reports."

                                3.1.1.2 Example 2: "Chief Master Sergeant Smith, Airman Jones reports."

                                3.1.1.3 Example 3: "Chief Smith, Airman Jones reports."

                                3.1.1.4 Example 4: "Staff Sergeant Smith, Airman Jones reports."

                                3.1.1.5 Example 5: "Sergeant Smith, Airman Jones reports."

                                3.1.1.6 Example 6: "Mr. Smith, Airman Jones reports."

                                3.1.1.7 Example 7: "Ms. Smith, Airman Jones reports."

                                3.1.1.8 Example 8: "Sir, Airman Jones reports."

3.1.3. Once dismissed, AIT will return to the position of attention, salute (as required), and execute proper facing movement(s) to depart the area. Note: AIT will salute when reporting to a commissioned officer of higher rank and hold the salute until it is returned by the officer.

 

3.3. Enlisted Transition Program (ETP).

                                The intent of ETP is to ensure the safety, security, and quality of life for enlisted AIT and enable their transition from BMT, Airman's Week, or USAFA to their course of initial entry (COIE), follow on training, or first duty station. ETP consists of three transition periods: basic, intermediate, and advanced. AITs must pass all transition requirements (e.g. open ranks, room inspections, etc.) prior to being transitioned to the next level. (T-3) Note: MTLs will track the completion of training requirements for transition in the CTF or AIMS. (T-3)

 

3.3.1. Basic Transition Period (BTP) provides for a smooth transition period from BMT and Airman's Week or USAFA into the flying or technical training atmosphere. AITs in this transition period have graduated from BMT and have completed Airman's Week training or transferred from USAFA. These AIT are expected to maintain their    appearance and to continue the disciplined performance they learned in BMT, Airman's Week, or USAFA; however, they still require continued reinforcement of the standards and behaviors expected of all Airmen. BTP requires AIT to accept increased responsibility and accountability for their personal actions and professional conduct before they may be transitioned to ITP. BTP will last no less than seven calendar days and no more than 60 calendar days from the date the Airman arrived at the training location.

               

                3.3.1.1. For Airmen arriving from the 737 TRG, USAFA, or had a break in training (BIT), BTP begins upon arrival at the initial flying or technical training location and continues through the completion of BTP requirements. Note: The 737 TRG/CC will implement the ETP for Airmen who have graduated BMT, completed Airman's Week, and are awaiting shipment to flying or technical training.

                3.3.1.2. For Airmen transferring from another flying or technical training location who have not completed all BTP requirements, BTP begins upon arrival at the new flying or technical training location and continues through the completion of BTP requirements. Note: With a properly documented CTF from the previous training location, MTLs may credit BTP requirements completed at the previous location.

                3.3.1.3. AIT in BTP will:

 

                                3.3.1.3.1 Pass two consecutive uniform open ranks inspections (a minimum of one ABU and one service uniform) and pass two consecutive room inspections prior to transitioning to ITP. (T-3)

                                3.3.1.3.2 Except for official appointments, remain on station. (T-3)

                                3.3.1.3.3 Wear the uniform of the day (UOD) both on- and off-duty. (T-3) The wear of civilian attire is not authorized. (T-3) Note: Off-duty AIT may wear the Physical Training Uniform (PTU) while they are in their dormitory, performing PT, and in route to fitness center or other physical fitness activity.

                                3.3.1.3.4 Adhere to call-to-quarters. (T-3) Exception: Individuals receiving Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) and authorized to live in off base or military family housing or participating in field training exercises.

                                3.3.1.3.5 Eat three meals per day in a base dining facility during the duty day. (T-3) Exception: Individuals receiving Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS) or participating in field training exercises.

                                3.3.1.3.6 Maintain their rooms according to local guidelines. (T-3)

                                3.3.1.3.7 March or use other authorized transportation to and from all training locations and appointments. (T-3)

                                3.3.1.3.8 Complete all in-processing, receive BTP to ITP transition information, and be recommended for transition to ITP, by their MTF MTL, prior to entering ITP. (T-3)

 

*** Intermediate Transition Period (ITP) ***

 

3.3.2. Intermediate Transition Period (ITP) prepares AITs to perform in positions of increased responsibility. AITs are expected to maintain their personal appearance and continue the higher standards of performance set forth in BTP; however, these AIT still require occasional reinforcement of the standards and behaviors expected of all Airmen. ITP requires AIT to accept and execute duties in positions of increased responsibility. Airman in ITP should be held accountable not only for their actions and behaviors but of those placed in their charge, as well, before they may be transitioned to ATP.

 

3.3.2.1. ITP begins when BTP ends. AIT will remain in ITP through completion of flying or technical training and arrival to their first permanent duty assignment in a non-student status or when entered into the Advanced Transition Period (ATP).

 

3.3.2.2. AIT in ITP will:

                3.3.2.2.1 Except for official appointments, remain on station during duty hours. (T-3) Note: AITs that have been placed in ITP and have transferred from                another flying or technical training location must remain on station on- and off-duty until local in-processing briefings are completed.

                3.3.2.2.2 Wear the UOD during duty hours. (T-3)

                3.3.2.2.3 Adhere to call-to-quarters. (T-3) Exception: Individuals receiving Basic Allowance for Housing (BAH) and authorized to live in off-base or military family housing or participating in field training exercises

                3.3.2.2.4 Eat two meals per day in a base dining facility during the duty day. (T- 3) Exception: Individuals receiving BAS or participating in field training exercises.

                3.3.2.2.5 Maintain their rooms according to local guidelines. (T-3)

                3.3.2.2.6 March or use other authorized transportation to and from all training locations and appointments. (T-3)

                3.3.2.2.7 Spend a minimum of 90 consecutive calendar days in ITP or complete COIE and be recommended for transition to ATP by the MTF assistant flight chief or higher prior to entering ATP.

 

*** Advanced Transition Periodictect (ATP) ***

 

3.3.3. Advanced Transition Periodictect (ATP) advances exceptional AITs who demonstrate maturity, professionalism, and character, as defined in AFI 1-1 and now require minimal supervision and minimal reinforcement of the standards and behaviors expected of all Airmen. ATP is intended for use when training pipelines (to include BMT and Airman's Week) are in excess of 180 calendar days. AIT considered for ATP must:

3.3.3.1. Have spent a minimum of 90 consecutive calendar days in ITP or completed COIE.

3.3.3.2. Be recommended for entry into ATP by the MTF assistant flight chief or higher.

3.3.3.3. AIT in ATP will:

                3.3.3.3.1 Except for official appointments, remain on station during duty hours. (T-3) Note: AITs that have been placed in ATP and have transferred from another flying or technical training location must remain on station on- and off-duty until local in-processing briefings are completed.

                3.3.3.3.2 Wear the UOD during duty hours. (T-3)

                3.3.3.3.3 Eat one meal per day in a base dining facility during the duty day. (T-3)
