INTENT and AFSOC are collaborating to update training innovatively.
ITP staff visited Hurlburt Field to understand better the 492d Special Operations Wing’s and Air Force Special Operations Command’s specific training needs and capabilities. Air Force Chief of Staff Charles “CQ” Brown, Jr. urged the force to “Accelerate Change or Perish.” The program’s ultimate objective is not just to provide a new method of conducting business; it is a concentrated attempt to reimagine successful training. Personnel from the AFSOC may perform a high-fidelity activity in a virtual environment, which saves both time and money. Reduced flight hours alleviate resource pressure in today’s resource-constrained world.
Personnel may remotely learn alongside an instructor in a formal training unit, saving time for the Air Force and Air Commandos. ITP will be implemented throughout all MAJCOMs beginning in FY23, with funds provided to acquire technology for our wings.
