Holzworth@Hawaii. This baby boomer who is computer challenged hit on the AFSC by mistake. Open list press F3 and enter AFSC you are looking for in the block that pops up at top right. Enter through list. They will be highlighted.

Is there a way to search by AFSC instead of last name

@Bobby Scott AFB Not everyone works in their career field like me therefore we are not efficient on our SKT knowledge. I for one scored higher on the PDG as I have been out of my career field at a ROTC unit for 4 years.

I agree Bobby at Scott AFB. What also blows my mind is how little today's Airman knows about our military history or heritage. Go and ask one who was the 3rd, 4th or 5th CMSAF. You will get the deer in the headlights stare.

For those that misinterpreted the fitness exam for the PFE perhaps you missed change to the cover of your study guide. It is now known as a Professional Development Guide-PDG. I think the original post was referring the fitness testexam.

so why if we get MSgt selects with enough time to vet them before making the announcement do we not even get the TSgt selects an hour early so that we can do up the certificates?

@ Fat to Fight AND @Thomas C...It blows my mind that people continue to refer to the Promotion Fitness Exam as the PT test. If you don't know what you're talking about please post somewhere else to keep from looking...well...silly.

@Fat to fight...I wish PT scores were a factor in'd either see a lot less people promoted or a lot more motivated to get in shape...

75.37 on the Fitness Exam And yet people strive for 90s. This is proof that a 75 is PASSING That is IT Doesn't matter if you get a 75 or a 95 on your fitness test you are fit to fight if you PASS

It blows my mind that people can know 75 percent of the PDG and only 55 percent about the job they do every single day

Fat to fight you are wrong. Promotion fitness exam or PFE is the test taken over Air Force history etc and the Skill knowledge test is over the AFSC specific tasks

@ Fat to Fight....Wrong kind of fitness exam you must be thinking of the Physical Fitness testing. The promotion fitness exam is testing military history and customs and courtesies.

To all who constantly gripe that the fitness test is weighed too heavily in an enlisted life I say... 75.37 for fitness aka PASSING

You should be able to view that information when the results are released tomorrow morning.
