Grading and Graded Elements

Grading

  1. With the exception of CFET, personnel who complete all modules of the required Aircrew Indoctrination NASTP Training, Non-aircrew NASTP Training, or any of the Non-aircraft Specific NASTP Training courses shall be classified as Qualified (Q). Personnel who do not successfully complete all modules of the course per CNO/COMNAVAIRFOR approved curricula requirements shall be classified as Unqualified (U).
  2. Aircrew Refresher NASTP Training shall be graded as follows:
    1. Qualified (Q). Individuals who successfully complete all aspects of required training shall be classified as Qualified.
    2. Conditionally Qualified (CQ) — Individuals who fail to successfully complete any one of the required modules (including lecture only modules), shall be classified as Conditionally Qualified. Failure to successfully complete the deficient module within 90 days will result in a grade of Unqualified (U) and the individual shall repeat the entire curriculum. Consecutive grades of CQ are not permitted within the current refresher cycle. Personnel designated as CQ may continue on flight status for this 90-day period. Qualification letters will indicate which module(s) was/were not successfully completed.
    3. Unqualified (U) or (UQ) — Individuals who fail to successfully complete two or more of the modules (including lecture only modules), or fail to qualify within 90 days after receiving a grade of CQ, shall be classified as Unqualified (U). Failure to successfully complete all deficient modules within 90 days will result in the individual repeating the entire curriculum. Personnel in a U status shall be grounded until they successfully achieve a grade of Q or CQ. Qualification letters will indicate which modules were not successfully completed.
    4. No Grade (NG) — If a refresher student begins NASTP training, but due to unforeseen circumstances is unable to complete the course, an entry in the record of NG shall be made. Those items not completed shall also be listed in the record. If any training element was attempted and failed, NG shall not be used, a grade of Unqualified (U) shall be entered. Personnel designated as NG may continue on flight status until their original qualification expires. Failure to complete training within 90 days will result in the individual repeating the entire curriculum. Qualification letters will indicate which modules were not successfully completed.
  3. Remediation and completion of training elements may take place at any NSTI ASTC. Upon successful completion of training, the ASTC providing remediation shall generate an updated qualification letter.
  4. CFET training is documented based on completion of specific CFET profiles. The qualification letter will document the completed profiles (A B C D E) and the aircraft trained for. Non-completed profiles will be listed (e.g., F/A-18, completed profiles A, B, C: non-completed profiles D, E.) Additional training is highly recommended for those who failed to complete all profiles. Grades of “Q”, “CQ”, “U”, and “NG” are not used for CFET training.
  5. Adjunctive Training is required in some cases and elective in others and is not graded. Squadron NATOPS or training officers shall ensure that the required specific annual training is documented with a completion date in the Individual’s NATOPS Training/Qualification jacket (Form 3760/32F).
  6. Inoperative Devices/Inclement Weather — Personnel participating in any Indoctrination or Initial NASTP Training courses must complete all modules of the appropriate curriculum to receive a grade of Qualified (Q). Students enrolled in these courses who are unable to complete a particular module because of an unplanned/unexpected training device malfunction or unavailability (not a CASREP or previously known or planned for repair) or due to inclement weather, may receive an overall grade of Q only if the training device requirement is specified as waiverable by COMNAVAIRFOR in either the approved curricula or in OPNAVINST 3710.7 series. Personnel participating in Aircrew Refresher NASTP Training who are unable to complete a particular module because of a training device malfunction, unavailability, or due to inclement weather may receive a grade of Q if they successfully complete approved alternate training (when applicable per the CNO/COMNAVAIRFOR approved curricula) and meet all other requirements. Notation of the device training not received shall be made in the individual’s qualification letter.
