11/15/2012 - JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO - RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- More than 300 Airmen were selected for promotion as part of the November enlisted supplemental promotion process, Air Force Personnel Center officials announced today.
Airmen on the supplemental list tested outside of their required cycle because of an extended temporary duty assignment or deployment in support of a contingency, said Master Sgt. Gisela Hawthorne, noncommissioned officer in charge of enlisted promotions and testing.
Selection is based on overall promotion scores derived from Weighted Airman Promotion System factors, including time-in-grade, time-in-service, enlisted performance reports, decorations, promotion fitness examination score and specialty knowledge test score, Hawthorne explained. For promotion to senior or chief master sergeant, it also includes board scores.
Promotion selections are tentative until the data verification process is complete; generally 10 days after the promotion release date, Hawthorne said.
