An important part of the feature is the pre-employment checklist, with includes a direct link Cyber Awareness Training. Completion of this training is a prerequisite for Air Force network access and ensures employees have the ability to get on their computers to begin work as soon as possible after in-processing.
“The impacts of delayed network access were identified as a critical issue during the AFMC We Need initiative this past summer. When new employees complete required training per the app checklist prior to the first day of work, we expedite the network access process and help them to become contributing members of the AFMC team much faster,” said Parada.
Future feature updates will include checklists and information specific to inbound military members of AFMC. However, a majority of the content currently hosted in the application is relevant to all AFMC Airmen, military and civilian alike, said Lindsay McNeely, AFMC workforce development specialist and application lead.
“We worked hard to make sure that we provide answers to all potential questions that a new hire might have when we developed this app, and we continue to modify based on feedback from early users,” said McNeely. “Adding information for our military will round out the offering and help us ease the transition of all new members into the AFMC family.”
