Should the Air Force Special Operations Command incorporate 3-level aircraft maintenance on-the-job training as part of the Air Force Special Operations Training Center AFSOTC The current method of providing the OJT for 3-levels using out of hide resources is adequate at best and needs improvement. If resourced properly with ample equipment and manpower, without degrading the existing aircraft maintenance organizations productivity, then AFSOTC is a viable for ensuring 3-level on the job training. The fiscally constrained world makes proper resourcing a challenge and it makes sense to consider options that include a Total Force Initiative that takes advantage of the Air Force Reserve Center resources, both equipment and expertise. In order to create and sustain an efficient, successful maintenance training environment and continue high levels of support for the long war, it is imperative to look outside of the box for a solution.
