Air Force officials: Check Professional Development Guide for errors

RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — Air Force officials announced today that some copies of the printed versions of the 2011 Professional Development Guide will need to be returned to unit Weighted Airman Promotion System monitors, as the documents may have a number of errors.

“Airmen and Supervisors of Airmen using this version of the Professional Development Guide need to be involved in this process to ensure everyone has proper study materials,” said Chief Master Sgt. Jim Cody, Air Education and Training Command command chief.

Chief Cody added that the electronic copy of the document does not have errors; however some printed version may have the following problems:

  • Missing pages 222-255 with duplicate sections starting on page 191
  • Missing pages 255-286
  • Missing pages from 350 to 382 with duplicate pages 319 to 350.

The errors listed above are only found in select copies of the printed versions and people who have one of these versions should return it to their unit WAPS monitor to request a replacement.

At least 750 PDGs contain errors so Airmen should review their copy of the PDG to make sure it does not contain any of the errors.

Air Force promotion testing policy does not require Airmen to have a printed PDG prior to promotion testing as long as examinees have access to the reference material. The electronic version of the PDG is immediately available and ensures everyone has access to the correct information.

The PDG can be downloaded via http://www.e-publishing.af.mil/ (e-publishing); however, printed PDGs cannot be ordered through the e-publishing web site, but must be obtained through unit orderly rooms. Electronic reference materials are also available (including mp3 audio files, interactive exercises, and e-Reader files) to assist Airmen with preparing for promotion testing at http://pdg.af.edu.
