Personal thoughts: I was assigned to this position my last year in the Air Force. It’s been an interesting experience and contrasted heavily with my maintenance technician job. This position is all about people. There are hundreds of training requirements that the average military member must meet. I’ve spent the last year ensuring that people are getting the training, creating new training, and conducting the training for folks that need it. Training classes range from suicide awareness/prevention to combat arms instruction. I’ve met a lot of people and had the opportunity to help a lot of those people. It’s been a rewarding experience.
