NCOs still needed to retrain

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas -- Airmen have until Sept. 17 to voluntarily retrain as part of the 2011 NCO Retraining Program before the program's involuntary Phase II begins.

Air Force officials identified 1,061 opportunities for Airmen to retrain out of their current career field under NCORP. Airmen can volunteer during Phase I for career fields meeting Air Force specialty code and grade requirements listed in the implementation message. Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. However, those selected under Phase II will be placed into AFSCs based on the needs of the Air Force.

As of Aug. 31, the Air Force has reached 46 percent of the Phase I NCORP goal.

Officials caution NCOs identified as vulnerable not wait until the final days to apply for a specific AFSC, which may no longer have any quotas. In addition, if a member does not qualify for one of remaining available AFSCs, he or she will be considered for separation.

Airmen can find the master vulnerability list on the Virtual Military Personnel Flight at Frequently asked questions concerning NCORP are available at under the "Enlisted" button and then click on the "Retraining" tab. Airmen can apply for retraining on the vMPF as well as find the remaining retraining-in opportunities.
