JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas – A deep dive into Air Education and Training Command's new force development learning management system called "myLearning" is the focus of the latest episode of "The Air Force Starts Here," released March 9, 2021.

Dan Hawkins from the Air Education and Training Command public affairs team spoke virtually with Floyd McKinney, AETC's chief of learning services, along with Adam Rasmussen and Lt. Col. Hien Nguyen from the HQ AETC/A3G division, about the new secure learning management system (LMS) that will enable student learning, automation and reporting for roughly 800,000 Total Force users in three phases, with the first phase consisting of a modernized and interactive training platform that allows Airmen to access training modules previously found on the Advanced Distributed Learning Service (ADLS).

The LMS is part of Air Education and Training Command’s efforts to aggressively and cost-effectively modernize education and training to develop the Airmen we need.

“Our training systems that support Force Development must be relevant to today’s Airmen so we can accelerate the change we need to keep pace with the fast-paced virtual learning world,” said Maj. Gen. Jeannie Leavitt, AETC director of operations and communications. “To develop an Airman’s competencies to out-think and out-perform any adversary in complex operational environments, we need to leverage modern information technology…myLearning helps us modernize how we train our force.”

The professional development podcasts are designed to help communicate and inform Total Force Airmen across the globe on relevant, timely topics related to the recruiting, training, education and development fields and can be listened to on the government network on the AETC websiteDVIDS, or via mobile application as well as on Apple PodcastsSpotify and Google Play.  Future episodes are set to cover a wide range of topics, including force development, and much more.
