By Air Force Personnel Center Public Affairs Office Air Force Personnel Center Public Affairs Office

Air Force officials selected 1,269 of 13,741 eligible master sergeants for promotion to senior master sergeant for a selection rate of 9.24 percent.

The average score for those selected was 665.85, with an average time in grade of 4.38 years and an average time in service of 20.2 years, respectively. The average score was based on the following point averages: 135 for enlisted performance reports, 21.30 for decorations, 61.47 for the Air Force supervisory examination and 394.06 board score.

The senior master sergeant promotion was released today at 8 a.m. CST on the Air Force Personnel Center's public Web site and "Ask" site, naming 26 Randolph Airmen as senior master sergeant promotees.

Airmen can access their score notices at the same time on the virtual Military Personnel Flight and the Air Force Portal, and those selected for senior master sergeant will be promoted according to their promotion sequence number beginning in April 2010.

As a reminder, selections are tentative until the data verification process is complete, which is no later than 10 days after the promotion release date. AFPC officials will notify Airmen through their military personnel sections if their selection is in question.
