SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -- Non-commissioned officers and senior non-commissioned officers recently gathered to attend a superintendent course Oct. 29 – Nov. 1.

During the course, students received briefings from various members of the base showing them all of the resources available to them and their Airmen.

“The superintendent course is a four day, all-inclusive course that provides Master Sergeants and Senior Master Sergeants who may be taking on the roles of a squadron, flight, or group superintendent all of the tools they would need to accomplish that mission,” said Senior Master Sgt. Brandy Hill, 20th Force Support Squadron career assistance advisor.

The class not only provided the attendees with the skills they need to lead their Airmen, but also provided an opportunity to connect with other senior leaders around Shaw.

“With these things I really look forward to the networking,” said Master Sgt. Jeffrey Zell, 20th Equipment Maintenance Squadron precision-guided munitions production supervisor. “Being a superintendent from my understanding isn’t really being an expert at everything but being resourceful and being able to reach outside of your organization to get answers and solutions for Airmen.”

Anyone interested in attending a superintendent’s course can sign up using the 20th Fighter Wing’s SharePoint.

“If you’re on the fence about (going), do it, get in here,” said Zell. “I imagine as this course progresses and develops there will be less and less opportunities because these classes will get fuller quicker. So if the opportunity presents itself don’t wait, just do it.”
