The Air Force has announced the creation of a new streamlined Expeditionary Readiness Program (ERT) governance construct that replaces the current tiered predeployment training model. ERT changes include adding pretests at the beginning of computer based training allowing proficient Airmen to bypass CBTs, aligning predeployment training with the AEF battle rhythm of 36-month cycles, and waiving predeployment training for similar ancillary or functional proficiency training Airmen have already accomplished. The new policy modifications will be captured in a new Air Force Guidance Memorandum that will supersede Air Force Instruction 36-2201, "Air Force Training Program". The AFGM will be posted on Air Force e-Publishing at www.e-publishing.af.mil and to myPers. For more information, watch the video on the Air Force website.
