Wg cdrs. Wg cdrs, who have not previously completed AST, or the 8-week ICSC(A) should, until Apr 2012 (when it will be replaced with the SOSP), attend the HAWC within their first year in the rank of wg cdr. Once introduced, SOSP attendance will be mandatory for non-AST graduates (except those personnel nominated to attend AST, including pre-selectees) within their first year of rank.




    1. Specialist branches. Personnel of the specialist branches were previously exempted from elements of the voluntary command and staff management training given to officers of the functional branches. However, specialist branch sponsors now require their personnel to actively engage in mandatory generic PMD(A), although the various demands on the branches modifies the timing of the engagement. Annex B identifies the revised generic PMD(A) programme for each of the specialist branches28. Included in the programme is the opportunity for specialists who were commissioned before the introduction of the SERE Basic Air Warfare Course (SBAWC) in Jul 06 to undertake the SBAWC on a fill-up basis.




    1. RAF Reserve and RAuxAF officers. From Oct 08, all newly appointed Reserve Air Forces personnel are mandated to undertake generic PMD(A) and will normally be expected to meet the same participation criteria as their regular counterparts. Included in the programme is the opportunity for Reservists who were commissioned before the introduction of the SBAWC in Jul 06 to undertake the SBAWC on a fill-up basis. Specific details relating to Reserves and arrangements for legacy personnel are at Annex C.




    1. Officer selection for AST. Selection for AST (ACSC and equivalent overseas staff colleges) is coordinated by RAF Manning and is linked to entry into the Executive Stream (ES)29. Officers in the Specialist Branches are not subject to ES selection and their attendance at AST is therefore based on the requirements of their respective branches. Successful completion of ICSC(A) is a pre-requisite for attendance on AST.




    1. Professional aviator spine (PAS). The eligibility criteria for entry to the PAS are detailed in JSP 754, Chapter 5, Section 6. New cohort JOs will only be considered for transfer by Manning after their successful completion of the JODP. Legacy PAS JOs are not mandated to attend residential generic PMD(A) courses. However, should any PAS officer elect, and be permitted, to transfer back to the Career Stream then they will be required to complete the relevant generic PMD(A) programme associated with their rank and meet all mandatory eligibility requirements in order to qualify for further promotion or attendance on advanced development courses, for example AST. NCA may also gain entry to the PAS but are not exempt from any PMD(A) courses linked to substantive promotion.

4. Phase 3 pre-course TEL. The requirement to complete pre-course material through PMD Online prior to arriving on Phase 3 PMD(A) residential courses is common. The course material forms an integral part of the overall courseware delivery and it is important that a full appreciation of the online material is gained prior to course attendance. The completion of all pre-course work is mandatory and failure to meet the input standard required may result in administrative action or removal from the course.





  1. Assessment strategy & end of course reports. Each formal course within the generic PMD(A) programme will be assessed as directed by the GETC (as the TRA). The varying lengths and intensity of the various packages dictates that, for some elements, assessment by exception may be the norm. In others, more detailed reports will be raised, especially those used as an indicator of potential for further development or where the course attracts certain accreditation. However, in all cases attitudinal approach and engagement will be measured. End of course reports will be raised for the following courses:




    1. J/I/AMLC. J/I/AMLC reports commenting on attitude, summarising performance and highlighting areas for further development are sent to the individual’s flt cdr, via unit Chief Clerks. In addition, individual learning journals are attached to AMLC reports in order that flt cdrs have sight of the development aspirations of their FSs.




    1. NCA CMT 1/2. NCA CMT course reports that comment on strengths and areas for further development are sent directly to the individual’s 2RO.




    1. JODP. JODP course reports indicating areas of strengths or where further development is needed, are sent to the individual and their stn cdr.




    1. ICSC(A). The end of course report for ICSC(A) summarises and grades an individual’s overall performance and attitude on the course. The final grade awarded is based upon the Overall Performance Grade principles of an OJAR. The report is submitted on JPA and a copy is retained by the individual.




  1. Re-course/non-completion of full course and suspension from training. Normally, students are only re-coursed for operational, medical or significant welfare reasons that have resulted in non-completion of the course. In these circumstances, a Review Board, chaired by the OC/Director the school, would consider whether completion of a full course was required, or whether modules of distance learning could be used to satisfy achievement of the missing training objectives. Suspension would occur only in the unlikely event of students ignoring verbal counselling from their tutors or Course Director, in respect of their attitude or failure to meet course standards. A decision to suspend a student from training would be made by a Review Board, chaired by OC/Director the school, under the auspices of QR 1027.




  1. Failure to appear. Personnel nominated to attend residential courses who fail to appear at the designated time and place may be subject to administrative action. Whilst it is the individual’s responsibility to notify the school, through unit admin staffs, of any delay in attendance, school staff will attempt to contact the individual, or parent unit to ascertain the reason for the failure to appear. Depending on the circumstances, OC/Director the school will consider whether formal action is required through QR 1027 for being AWOL.




  1. Course failure. Failure to achieve the required output standard will prevent the award of the service qualifier symbol and may trigger administrative action. In the event of failure, a Review Board, chaired by OC/Director the school, will determine whether additional distance learning and/or a re-course is merited. Where failure of the course impacts on career development the Review Board is to be co-chaired by a Manning staff officer of equivalent rank to the OC/Director of the school. Failure of a course may result in administrative action under QR 1027.




  1. Command and Management Training. Where a PMD(A) course forms part of the requirement for ground trades personnel to complete Command and Management Training (CMT) prior to the award of substantive promotion, personnel are to be aware of the impact refusal to attend, withdrawal from a course or course failure will have on the authority for their promotion. AP3376 Volume 1 Annex A details the relevant policies.




  1. Accreditation. Active engagement in generic PMD(A) will provide many benefits in terms of operational effectiveness and efficiency. Additionally, the continuum of generic PMD(A) will provide the opportunity for individuals to gain full, or partial awards in academic or vocational qualifications, especially when evidence of learning can be drawn from an e-portfolio. Policy for accreditation is detailed in JSP 898 Part 4 Chapter 5. Accreditation activity is influenced by developments in national qualifications, changes to RAF formal training and funding levels available. 22(Trg) Gp, SO2 Accreditation, is responsible for the RAF accreditation strategy, including appropriate accreditation for all PMD(A) training and the advice to TRAs on suitable accreditation schemes. The aim is to ensure that the maximum level of accreditation is available to recognise the skills and knowledge they develop through formal training and experience. Details of the accreditation currently available are at Annex D.
