Promotion testing windows expanded for E-5 through E-7 cycles

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --

The Air Force will expand the testing windows for Airmen beginning with the 07E6 and 07E7 cycles.

The changes are part of an ongoing process to improve the enlisted promotion testing system, according to officials at the Air Force Personnel Center here.

"Some factors that drove this change were the increasing number of non-weighable Airmen due to deployments and temporary duty assignments testing outside the established window," said Chief Master Sgt. Rusty Nicholson, enlisted promotion and military testing chief at AFPC. "In reality, our testing cycle is practically year round.

"Plus, large bases couldn't complete testing under the current testing cycle," the chief added. "This expanded testing window will help alleviate out of cycle testing, daily multiple testing sessions and weekend testing."

The testing window for promotion testing will be expanded as follows: 
07E6/07E7: Feb. 1 through March 31, 2007 
07E5: May 1 through June 15, 2007.
