An updated list of the constrained AFSCs is available on the Air Force Personnel Center's Web site at http://ask.afpc.randolph.af.mil; click on Career Planning, Advancement, Reenlistment, Career Job Reservations, Career Fields on the Constrained AFSC List and Available Quota(s).
Effective Sept. 1, 2006, first-term Airmen selected by their commanders as eligible to reenlist no longer need to complete an Air Force Information Management Tool 545 "Request for Career Job Reservation" unless they desire a CJR in their secondary AFSC or have special circumstances. All first-term Airmen must have an approved CJR to reenlist.
Once Airmen are considered reenlistment eligible under the Selective Reenlistment Program, the system will automatically request a CJR once Airmen enter the first month of their CJR window. The SRP will continue to review records of Airmen considered as initially ineligible then request a CJR if their eligibility status changes during their CJR window.
Enlistment extensions will have no impact on an Airman's CJR eligibility window. The window is based on the Airman's initial enlistment category as follows:
-- 35-38 months for National Call to Service enlistees;
-- 35-43 months for four-year enlistees; and
-- 59-67 months for six-year enlistees.
"In previous years, Airmen who entered into enlistment extensions would receive an opportunity to meet more CJR boards since Airmen were only removed from the CJR board if they were five months prior to their date of separation or had received an approved CJR," said Tech. Sgt. Catrina Baskin, NCOIC of Air Force Reenlistment Management Section. "Now, that eligibility window does not change regardless of whether or not an Airman extends his or her enlistment, all Airmen will be removed at the end of their CJR eligibility window."
Reenlistment eligible first-term Airmen serving in a constrained AFSC will be added to a waiting list and compete for monthly quotas based on a rank order process. The virtual Military Personnel Flight will provide a link displaying CJR status, waiting list number for constrained skills and a CJR expiration date for those members receiving CJRs.
Those Airmen no longer in a constrained AFSC who are still in their eligibility window will receive a CJR; however, those outside their window will be removed from the list and will not receive a CJR.
Airmen who do not receive a CJR may reapply for retraining if they previously applied during their window or they may apply for special duty identifier no later than 120 days from their date of separation. Otherwise, they will be projected for separation.
"Airmen in constrained AFSCs are highly encouraged to apply for retraining or a special duty identifier during their CJR window," said Sergeant Baskin. "These Airmen will not be permitted to apply for retraining later if they did not apply during their CJR window."
Quotas for constrained AFSCs will be posted monthly and updated as required on the Air Force Personnel Center's reenlistment Web site. For more information, contact base military personnel flight reenlistment offices or visit the AFPC Web site.
