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 (Continued) 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.

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.
