The Air Force has selected 6,684 staff sergeants for promotion to technical sergeant.

The Air Force Personnel Center said Thursday that 38,344 staff sergeants were eligible for promotion, resulting in a selection rate of 17.43 percent.

That is more than the 5,654 staff sergeants selected for promotion last year. And this year’s selection rate is up slightly from 2013, when 15 percent of eligible staff sergeants were selected for promotion. But it is still far below the nearly 23 percent selection rate in 2012.

Competition for promotions this year was slightly looser than in 2013. Last year, the average score for selectees was 340.17. But that fell slightly in 2014 to 337.23.

The average time in grade for selectees is 5.3 years and the average time in service is 10.53 years. That is down slightly from the average time in grade of 5.52 years and average time in service of 10.78 years last year.

The average promotion fitness examination scores have fallen sharply in recent years. In 2012, the average score was 75.37. That fell to 72.63 in 2013 and 68.89 in 2014.

But the average specialty knowledge test score climbed considerably in 2014 to 66.32. Last year, the average SKT score was 63.40.

The average enlisted performance report score for selectees is 133.02, and the average decoration score is 6.01.

Selectees will pin on their new rank beginning in August, according to their promotion sequence number.
