Abstract : The objective of this research study was to assess the potential implications of AFSC Regulation 36-5 on the 27XX career field. This analysis was accomplished by comparing the attitudes of junior (AFSC 2724) and senior (AFSC 2716) officers in relation to the requirements outlined in the regulation. Using this approach, this study established that both test samples of officers proposed a positive relationship between career development and the following variables: 1) specialty training, 2) professional military education, 3) academic background, 4) operational experience, and 5) different acquisition-related experiences. In addition to these findings, this study determined that the attitudes of both junior and senior officers relative to career development are very similar. With the exception of those individual training, and professional military education programs oriented towards either junior or senior officers, the general attitudes of these test samples of officers were comparable.
