The Office of the Assistant Chief of Air Staff for Education and Training, OA-8, headed by COL JOSE JOHNSON T GRAYDA MNSA (PAF), successfully completed the Civilian Personnel Basic Course last on October 1, 2020.

The said pilot course was the first one ever to be conducted online by PAF. It was facilitated by MAJ DENZIL M LANGWAS PAF, Director for Individual Training, OA-8 and MS RACQUEL T BELANDO, the Chief for the Civilian Personnel Training Branch, OA-8 together with her staff, which started last September 4, 2020. Forty (40) Civilian HRs from different PAF bases attended the said course.

The goal of the course is to orient the participants with the duties they will be performing as Civilian Human Resource of the Philippine Air Force. Being the first of its kind, the conduct of the online course encountered unique problems such as connectivity issues and poor reception quality. Nevertheless, the activity succeeded in attaining not only the objectives of the training but also in developing the camaraderie and friendship among our Civilian HRs. This milestone truly demonstrated the PAF’s three virtues: “Diwa, Galing at Malasakit.”
