Courses of Initial Entry
Course of Initial Entry (COIE)�The first course in an initial skills training pipeline. For the Battlefield Airmen specialties the COIE is typically the prerequisite course required to be successfully completed to pass forward into the AFSC awarding course. The COIE may or may not have may not have an implemented Student-Initiated Elimination (SIE) option. Generally, Volunteer status is a prerequisite to continue in certain career fields. Students who withdraw their volunteer status cannot continue in the career field or the associated pipeline courses. For AFSCs that have an SIE option, training personnel will verbally brief students during in-processing that if they exercise the SIE option, they will be subject to potential discharge. Students who graduate BMT and enter training for AFSCs having an SIE option may not withdraw their volunteer status before they have officially entered the course of initial entry (COIE). Students who withdraw their volunteer status cannot continue in the career field or the associated pipeline courses.
