59th Training Group Registrar’s Office

The 59 TRG/59 TRSS Registrar is tasked with ensuring accuracy in student technical training information. The registrar office maintains direct liaison between the DHA’s Medical Education and Training Campus (METC), 59 TRG training squadrons, and Non-Resident Medical Training Program partners. We work directly with Squadron Training Managers, Educational Program Directors, Course Supervisors, Instructor Supervisors, Instructors and Military Training Leaders as well as both the Air National Guard and Reserve liaisons to ensure that student technical training records are correct and complete. The registrar also provides student tracking and conducts training record analysis. The registrar office is the point of contact for training related verification processes for graduates of a medical technical training course at JBSA Ft Sam Houston or one of its non-resident medical training program sites.


Frequently Asked Questions

1. What records are available?

There are two distinct record verifications the Registrar’s Office supplies upon proper request (AETC Form 156, Student Record of Training, and verification of training completed). We do not provide copies of certificates of completion, DD-214’s, College Transcripts (CCAF), etc. All Sheppard AFB Medical Course Verifications were moved to Fort Sam Houston, San Antonio, TX in 2000. Sheppard Medical Training verification requests are treated the same as all other 59 TRG training verification requests.

2. What is an AETC Form 156?

AETC Form 156 is a “report card” supplying student training information pertaining to the record of attendance at an Air Force Technical Training schoolhouse while preparing for an AFSC or other occupation as an Airman. It also can be an official document to prove successful completion of training.

3. How is an AETC Form 156 used?

The AETC Form 156 can be requested by the Service Member as an official document to verify attendance in a particular training course. Upon the discretion of Registrar Staff, UTM’s and other officials can request Form 156’s with the consent of the member (graduation from a technical training course indicates a correlation with the proficiency code on the CFETP- usually at the “A”), these requests are weighted on their merits and cannot be a part of disciplinary action. Employment screening companies request Form 156 information to determine attendance, class start and class grad as a part of their vetting process.

4. Are AETC Form 156’s issued upon graduation?

No, that practice was discontinued some time ago due to the burdensome workload and staffing limitations. No bulk issues.

5. What is the process to request Training Records for a course attended under the purview of the 59 TRG?

Records requested follow strict adherence to the provisions of the Privacy Act of 1974 and require a signed release of information by the requester. Use the 59 TRG Verification Request Form. The form should be filled out as completely as possible (including name at the time of training (first, last MI), course name and or course number, dates of attendance, social security number) and returned using proper encryption to protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Please allow four to six weeks for processing.

Limited records are available for training conducted at Sheppard AFB – (Years 1979 - 1998).
