Personal Author C. Benard E. O'Connell T. Manacapilli
Abstract The Air Force spends approximately $750 million per year on IST, plus an unknown amount for on-the-job and other types of training. This training has arguably helped make the U.S. Air Force the best air force in the world. However, current training methods may not be as efficient and effective as emerging alternatives. This study looks at educational approaches that would customize training to individual characteristics with the intent of minimizing the trainee s time in training, focusing the training on the trainee s needs, and getting the trainee productive sooner, all leading to reduced costs.
