Balancing Education and Training Goals for the U.S. Air Force

Jason Abshire, Air Force Institute of Technology


Delivering relevant education and training in a highly dynamic professional studies area is challenging. The discussion of education vs. training can be highly contentious, with some thinking education is over-rated and training and certification is most important. Both are key to delivering capable cyberspace professionals. Training is necessary to ensure learners have specific understanding of systems or software, and education is necessary to prepare learners for novel situations. To meet this need, educators must be forward-thinking to develop courses quickly and adapt quickly, as needed, incorporating an appropriate amount of education and training.
