Chief's Corner - week of Jan. 14

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Becoming a master sergeant

The specific role of a master sergeant requires both "a broad technical and managerial perspective."  This is specified in Air Force Instruction 36-2618, The Enlisted Force Structure.  In order to make the transition from NCO to senior NCO the Air Force developed Professional Military Education and CCAF degrees to aide in the process.  These are two critical components to the Whole Airman Concept.

However, there is no secret playbook to getting promoted. As I recall from a Chief's Corner written by Chief Master Sgt. James Herkel a few years ago, entitled A-T-T,  Ace The Test, the answers are available everywhere you look.
