HAZMAT Technitian no longer required for 5 level upgrade
Per the new instruction from AFCESA dated 4 May09 regarding the change of 5 level upgrade, I was wondering if anyone knows or can find out about the requirement for upgrade. I was held up on upgrade for 5 level because of HAZMAT Tech and it held me back for over 18 months in which I just received my 5 level in Feb09. I am prior service and have over 9 years as an E5 and 12 years total service. I had all of my driver operators as of 2 years ago(April07) and just received my HMT in February09. Should i be able to get my 5 level upgrade backdated to the day I finished up my D/O courses(APR07). Also I have completed all of my 7 level courses so I am kindof in limbo trying to figure this out due to AEF coming up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
