RANDOLPH AIR FORCE BASE, Texas — Air Force officials selected 1,274 of 12,378 eligible master sergeants for promotion to senior master sergeant for a selection rate of 10.29 percent.

The average score for those selected was 665.57, with an average time in grade of 4.30 years and an average time in service of 19.76 years.

The average score was based on the following point averages: 134.98 for enlisted performance reports, 20.92 for decorations, 64.34 for the Air Force supervisory examination and 392.25 board score.

The senior master sergeant promotion list was released at 8 a.m. CST Thursday on the Air Force Personnel Center’s website and Air Force Personnel Services website under enlisted promotions. Airmen also can access their score notices at the same time on the Virtual Military Personnel Flight and Air Force Portal.

Those selected for senior master sergeant will be promoted according to their promotion sequence number beginning in April.

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.
