Air Force extends 20E6 promotion testing window for 18 AFSCs


Air Force officials announced, Feb. 13, that the promotion testing window for approximately 6,000 Airmen in the 20E6 promotion cycle will be extended through April 30 as a result of a potential compromise of promotion testing material.

The Air Force’s Personnel Center made the decision to extend the testing window following discovery that 18 Specialty Knowledge Tests were unaccounted for. These tests were mailed to an installation test control office but, to date, have not been received within the expected delivery window.

The unaccounted for SKTs affect eligible Airmen in 18 Air Force specialty codes. The AFPC is notifying those Airmen directly, as well as their commanders, force support squadrons and test control officers (TCO).

“As soon as we became aware of this situation our team of experts from here at AFPC, the AETC Studies and Analysis Squadron, and Headquarters Air Force assessed the scope of the problem and identified the Airmen affected,” said Maj. Gen. Andrew J. Toth, AFPC commander. “It’s important we maintain integrity of the enlisted promotion process while taking care of Airmen. That’s our commitment and that’s what we’re doing.”

The Airmen who will test in the extended window are those who hold one of the 18 affected AFSCs. All other Airmen eligible for promotion testing in the 20E6 cycle will test as originally scheduled, and Airmen who are SKT exempt in these 18 AFSCs are not affected and will need to test as scheduled.

Air Force officials do not anticipate impacts to the promotion release for any Airmen, including those in the 18 affected AFSCs.

The 18 affected AFSCs are:
3P071 Security Forces Craftsman (Includes A and B shreds)
4A071 Health Services Management Craftsman
4A171 Medical Materiel Craftsman
4B071 Bioenvironmental Engineering Craftsman
4C071 Mental Health Service Craftsman
4E071 Public Health Craftsman
4J072 Physical Medicine Craftsman
4M071 Aerospace and Operational Physiology Craftsman
4N071 Aerospace Medical Service Craftsman (Includes B and F shreds) **Includes 4N0X1, 4N0X1B & 4N0X1F
4N071C Aerospace Medical Service (Independent Duty Medical Technician) Craftsman

4Y071 Dental Assistant Craftsman (Includes H shred)
4Y072 Dental Laboratory Craftsman
5R071 Religious Affairs Craftsman
6C071 Contracting Craftsman
7S071 Special Investigations Craftsman

Eligible Airmen in one of those 18 AFSCs can expect to be contacted by their respective TCO and scheduled to test as soon as practical after the installation receives the new test material.

For additional information, Airmen are encouraged to contact their local TCO and chain of command.
