AEO Specialty Track Levels
The levels within the Aerospace Education

than that of any other Specialty Track.
There are three levels:
 Technician
 Senior
 Master
AEO Specialty Track Levels
(Continued)
The specialty track is governed by CAPP
215.
National Headquarters published the
latest version of the pamphlet in
February 2002.
The new pamphlet is different from the
previous version and this presentation
reflects those changes.
AEO Learning Domains
There are three learning domains within
the AEO specialty track:
 Knowledge of the Subject Matter
 Duty Performance
 Position Experience
You must complete specific requirements
within each domain at every in order to
advance to the next level.
AEO Learning Domains
(Continued)
Unlike other Specialty Tracks, progress in
any learning domain can be concurrent
with those of other levels.
AEO Learning Domains
(Continued)
Knowledge
You must demonstrate knowledge of
specific nature at each level.
For the Technician and Senior levels, you
must take and pass a written
examination.
The Study Bibliography contained at the
end of CAPP 215 is sufficient to
complete this requirement.
AEO Learning Domains
(Continued)
Duty Performance
Duty Performance focuses on specific
tasks that the AEO performs at the
rated level.
The results are measurable and, usually,
tangible.
Therefore, they can be documented.
AEO Learning Domains

Position Assignment
A Personnel Authorization (PA) or CAPF
2a are sufficient to document the
assignment to one or more positions.
Positions may be assigned concurrently.
For higher ratings, the AEO must serve in
squadron level positions for a longer as
a substitute for group, wing, or region
assignments.
Progressing in the AEO
Specialty Track
As mentioned above, many requirements
for progressing in the 215 Specialty
Track can be completed concurrently.
The minimum time for completing the
Master Rating is now 12 months.
(Until the 2002 revision, the requirement
was 18 months.)
Let’s review CAPP 215.
