Sixteen airmen have graduated from the Air Force’s first intermediate network warfare training course at Hurlburt Field, Fla. “INWT takes cyber training to the next level, and we’re excited for the field to see what these graduates, and those who follow, can do,” said Lt. Col. Brian Denman, commander of the 39th Information Operations Squadron that teaches the nine-week course. This instruction serves as initial-qualification training for cyber defense operators. “The stand up of cyber IQT, like the stand up of cyber initial skills training, represents a key step toward true normalization of operational cyber training, creation of a common standard for cyber operators, and, at the bottom line, more effective airmen capable of mastering operations in a heavily contested cyberspace domain,” said Randall Brazelton, 39th IOS course director. The airmen graduated on March 31. (Hurlburt report by TSgt. Scott McNabb)
