Eligible noncommissioned officers have through Oct. 9 to apply for retraining under Phase I of the Fiscal Year 2016 NCO Retraining Program. During Phase I hundreds of eligible staff sergeant-selects through master sergeants in identified fields will be able to voluntarily apply for retraining into one of approximately two dozen open fields this year. The list, available in the myPers enlisted retraining advisory, is updated in real-time. The advisory identifies fields that people can train out of, and fields that Airmen can train into (see "Type" column in the advisory). Also, a live chat feature is available for Airmen on the NCO Retraining Program webpage. To chat live with a Total Force Service Center representative, go to the page and allow about 30 to 60 seconds for a representative to come online.
