JTAC is a combined qualification and certification. Within the Air Force it's primarily a core qualification/certification for award and retention of enlisted TACP and TACP Officers AFSCs. CCT/STO also get the opportunity for the qual and cert. As the first letter in the certification is Joint, technically anybody could get the qual and certification presuming they can arrange the range time, AF aircraft and munitions to obtain and sustain the certification. CCT/STO and some rated officers also get the opportunity for the qual and cert.
