The advisory code makes it official for others outside of the combat control career field. No official advisory code prevents exception to policy happening or being allowable.

Gentlemen,

Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. I applied for retrain to MyPers and was accepted to submit a package. While getting my retrain documents together there was still retraining quotas available for Combat Control. But when I submitted my package there were no retraining quotas on the On line retraining advisory for SSgt 1C2X1. Since there were no quotas MyPers has officially dropped my case. I was wondering if anyone has had this happen, because I had heard that 1C2X1 is always recruiting regardless of the retraining advisory. Any input would be appreciated even if it's just telling me I'm SOL and have to wait for the retrain advisory to update again. Thanks!

I can't answer your specific question, but it's impossible to approve any retraining request if there are no quotas in the system to bring an individual into the AFSC with.

There are 9 FTA training in quotas available. So the question begged for in answering your question is are you a FTA SSgt or are you SSgt in second or subsequent enlistment?

If FTA advisory note 424 may be applicable--For disqualified airman. Do not disapprove application at the myPers-Total Force Service Center based solely on mismatches between grade objectives. See BPO.

More than likely however the answer, which I can't provide, is likely to be SOL you must wait for a SSgt requirement.

Also be aware of advisory note 418--Must be in grade of E-5 or below with less than 10 years of TAFMS for Combat Control (1C2X1)

Yukon,

Unfortunately the advisory not does not apply to me because I am a second term SSgt with 5 years time in service. I figured the answer would probably be that I will just have to wait. The only positive is that I have the entire package done so now if a spot does open I just have to submit it again. Thank you. I appreciate the response.

The advisory still applies to you even though you are second term. You will now go off the SSgt quotas instead of First Term Airmen.

Spyders,

Unfortunately this happened to me as well during my first time applying for 1C211. My flight physical took forever because of my PRK waiver and all the slots closed before I could submit my package. I tried anyway, and recieved the same notification you did from MyPers. However, once slots opened back up for second term SSGT I submitted right away and was approved. I just had to change the dates on a few documents and retake the PAST test again. Good luck brother.

@shellfish

I think that once your app has been approved and It says pending assesment or CFM review you could go to the assessment. I would imagine it would only be an issue for those attempting to submit their first request. I'm supposed to be going to the July assesment I'm a second term SSgt and my package still remains open even though there are 0 SSgt slots.

Does anyone know how I would get in touch with somebody who is allowed to conduct a PAST? Being stationed at Keesler I thought I could have a cadre administer it, but they are not allowed to anymore. On myPers under the retraining advisory note section (advisory note 278) it says location on the HQ AETC/A3T portal page, but I'm not finding anything.

The instructors are getting handcuffed these days from AETC/2nd AF. We'll be at Keesler on 11 June if he wants to join in then.
