Occupation Groups

The CAF has created a number of generic occupation groupings such as: ANY, ATR, OPS GEN, AIRGEN, SEAGEN, CBTA...etc. These occupation groups bring together occupations of similar training, education, experience, and/or area of employment. The majority of CAF establishment positions and tasks are assigned a specific occupation, but some are assigned an occupation group. CAF members and officers are employed in positions and tasks to which the individual's occupation is a match for either the position's occupation or occupation group.
