Abstract : This is a report of an occupational survey of the Communications-Computer Systems Operator (AFSC 3C0X1) career ladder conducted by the Occupational Analysis Flight of the Air Force Occupational Measurement Squadron. The survey was performed to provide information to support career field training documents. Data gathered through this OSR have already been used by the technical school to review their training courses and related training documents in light of equipment and utilization changes which have occurred since the last OSR in 1988. The AFMAN 36-21098 Specialty Descriptions for this career field state that 3- and 5-skill level members are responsible for preparing communications-computer systems for operation, operating consoles, performing system product control, and authorized operator maintenance of peripheral equipment. In addition, 3- and 5-skill level members troubleshoot problems occurring on various communications-computer machines. In addition to the above, 7-skill level members are also responsible for planning and scheduling, supervising, evaluating and assisting, and controlling communications-computer systems activities. Entry into the career ladder is from Basic Military Training School (BMTS) through a 70 day formal training course conducted at Keesler AFB MS. Resident ABR training includes principle-centered training relating to: Communications-Computer Systems career ladder, security, internal coding systems, internal data flow, computer network principles, computer system components and configurations, and peripheral equipment and storage media.
