First Enlisted Airmen Graduate from Intelligence Planning Course

The first class of enlisted students graduated from the Advanced Enlisted Mission Planning Course, the first offering for enlisted intelligence professionals at the Air Force Weapons School at Nellis AFB, Nev. “They all worked extremely hard,” said Capt. James Blick, 19th Weapons Squadron mission planning course flight commander, in Nellis’ May 22 release. The six airmen, who graduated on May 17, now will use their skills as they work closely with their home units’ intelligence weapons officers and chiefs of training to help the units retain readiness and improve training, states the release. The five-week course includes more than 120 hours of academic instruction focused on advanced mission planning concepts for supporting major commands. It’s geared toward five-level and seven-level noncommissioned officers, states the release. (Nellis report by SSgt. Gregory Brook)
