Air National Guard Director Lt. Gen. Stanley Clarke has said he believes that human instruction is just as important as computer-based instruction on ancillary training for airmen, Air Force Times reported Sunday.
“The computers can be a time-saving device in the sense that they can quickly calculate or simulate data,” Clarke told the publication.
He added that training personnel help facilitate information exchange because of their ability to “teach en masse and let people learn.”
Clarke also believes more work is needed to simplify airmen’s transition between active and reserve components throughout their service, the report said.
He noted that Air National Guard members support the U.S. military’s air-based defense, security, firefighting disaster response and training efforts when they do not have overseas assignments.
