This research project discusses follow-on training as an enhancement to the leadership development process for enlisted Airmen in the United States Air Force. Selection of this topic was based on personal observations of a learning retention gap after enlisted members complete a Professional Military Education (PME) learning event. The methods used were primarily researched from journal articles, books, periodicals, and Air Force documents. The results revealed follow-on training enhances leadership development by reinforcing the curriculum through repetition and application. Also, follow-on training increases the likelihood of transferring learning back to the workplace. The research concludes that adopting a follow-on training process creates a deeper understanding and confidence with the Institutional Competencies which benefits the Air Force with increase in commitment, bench strength, and retention rates of its members.
