Great podcast, continue to discuss upcoming innovations
Thank you for this podcast! Would it be possible to grab some of the people behind the Air Forces’s Learning Services Ecosystem? I am very curious as to what drove that program, what it’s capabilities are, and what problems it plans to solve as it moves forward. Keep up the great work!
Gender Inclusive Language Pleasee
It is important for you and your guests to include all genders in your language "helping you to be a better father, husband,etc." makes those who are not men tune out and feel excluded. Thanks.
Great podcast with a lot of useful information and insight into the evolving training world. I would like to hear about the Accelerated Commissioning Program that was Beta Tested for MSgt-CMSgt this past year. What was the outcome and what is the future of this program or a similar one?
