Maintaining volunteer status is mandatory to remain in some career fields to include initial entry classification qualification training required to entry classify into some career fields.
*Self Initiated Elimination—Students in specified courses (e.g., combat control, pararescue, SERE, air traffic control, explosive ordnance disposal) may elect to eliminate themselves from this training by removing volunteer status.
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.

AETC Form 125A, Block 3 recommend/non-recommend is primarily applicable to the reclassification action done when you were removed from training and classified into current AFSC. Pertinent to an SIE, the AETC Form 125A will clearly indicate that the student initiated withdrawal from the career field or a requirement of the career field.

The SIE, particularly from initial qualification to perform pararescue duties no longer carries the stigma of being considered a permanent removing of volunteer willingness to perform Pararescue duties. Seldom back in the old days (1947-ca. 1990s) did a SIEed student from initial qualification training to perform Pararescue duties gain approval to renter training.
