New course prioritizes development of professional mobility Airmen

JOINT BASE MCGUIRE-DIX-LAKEHURST, N.J. (AFNS) -- The U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center offers on-demand Rapid Global Mobility courses and information to help mobility Airmen understand their role in the mission.

The three RGM courses, which became available in January 2017 target Air Mobility Command Airmen at three stages: newly assigned, upgraded and transitioning leaders. The courses teach students about their role in AMC and provide information about the organizations that come together to make rapid global mobility a reality.

“Our professional mobility Airmen fuel global mission success,” said Gen. Carlton D. Everhart II, the AMC commander. “We have a responsibility to provide our Airmen with the tools and knowledge to succeed in any environment. As the world continues to evolve, so must our training.”

AMC provides critical services to each of the nine combatant commands to support the joint warfighter. By delivering AMC’s first mobile on-demand training and information platform, the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Operations School hopes to develop the Mobility forces by making resources available at the time and point of need.

"Our team at the Expeditionary Operations School developed this course from the ground up with mobility Airmen in mind," said Maj. Gen. Christopher Bence, the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center commander. "Whether you are an Airman 1st Class new to AMC or a seasoned leader in the command, you will find that RGMC will help you better understand how we, AMC, deliver Airpower."

This is a resource for mobility Airmen, by mobility Airmen. RGM Courses 1 and 2 are web-based courses, which can be accessed on any device. The final course, RGMC 3, is a selectively chosen five-day interaction where students are trained with scenario based education challenges where students engage with subject matter experts from around the command to gain a strategic perspective.

“A portion of this course used to be the Air Mobility Operations Course,” said Master Sgt. James Ponziano, the 423rd Mobility Training Squadron Leadership Education section chief. “We’ve taken that 16-hour course and condensed it to four hours. I’m really excited that we are able to give Airmen their time back. We still familiarize students with the way AMC is built through RGMC 1, which is the introduction to Air Mobility Command, but now you can pick what information you want to become more familiar with.”
