The Air Force has chosen 34 enlisted airmen for supplemental promotion in May, according to a Thursday release.
The selectees include 12 who will be promoted to staff sergeant, one to technical sergeant, 18 to senior master sergeant, and three for chief master sergeant.
The list of selectees released by the Air Force Personnel Center omits some airmen who serve in sensitive jobs.
By dropping the Weighted Airman Promotion System tests for SNCO promotions, the Air Force hopes to prevent sub-par leaders from squeaking through the promotion process by testing well.
Airmen are considered for supplemental promotion if they are unable to test during their normal testing window, such as if they are deployed or are on an extended temporary duty assignment.
