Yukon,

Hitting my 3 year mark next month and I know that opens up the early retraining window where you have one shot to retrain.

Is going to assessment and not getting chosen classified as a fail? What it seems like is this is solely to see if you would "survive" via a TDY.

Hope you all had a easy Veterans day and smooth weekend.

Going to assessment and not being selected IS NOT considered a fail.

One of the primary reasons for retraining assessment into BA AFSCs such as PJ and CCT/SOW after retraining into BA AFSCs becoming everybody who desires now gets a chance is the lack of integrity of unit commanders and unit supervisors and applicants in their PAST scores and other performance background info such as EPRs being extremely nothing but unreliable BS.

Quality not Quantity has always been the motto of PJ Indoc and PJ Development course.

I just an hour ago finished visiting the Pararescue-CRO school, Kirtland AFB. The cross train applicant assessment is not an assessment to see if one will survive the PJ Development and PJ Indoc course. It exists to assess the applicant does meet PAST and other entry classification performance standards. Getting an assessment go to proceed to the development course doesn't give an assurance of surviving (getting successfully through Dev and Indoc courses) in the way you are most likely are thinking it does.

The PJ cross train applicant assessment came into being needed in technically (an exaggeration) under recently implemented policy everybody in the Security Forces career field could submit an application to retrain into Pararescue and flood the required courses with more students than the Air Force needs and more students than the courses have instructors and facility resources to properly train.

Also as previously disclosed unit commander recommendations, EPRs, and unit certified PAST accomplishments lack accurate (are unreliable and not dependable) in documenting applicants actual current level of performance and performance potential.
