FRIENDSVILLE, Tenn. – The Air National Guard’s primary learning and broadcast center is generating military education solutions for the total U.S. Air Force in immediate and long term challenges, said its Airmen teleworking in East Tennessee this week.

The I.G. Brown Training and Education Center staff are following the guidance and directives of the CDC, the National Guard Bureau, and the Department of Defense concerning COVID-19, which includes personal distancing, teleworking, and other actions to stop the spread.

MCGHEE TYSON AIR NATIONAL GUARD BASE, Tenn. —¬†The Air National Guard division that manages Professional Continuing Education for thousands of Airmen, including its satellite Warrior Network television studios, has changed its name.

The I.G. Brown Training and Education Center’s PCE Division announced recently¬†that it now will be called TEC University, effective Nov. 1.

The new name, which leaders say identifies a new approach in learning, comes from years of listening to requests by ANG Airmen to broaden its offerings and innovate education methods to upgrade their skills and knowledge, its officials said.

U.S. Air Force Airmen assigned to the I.G. Brown Training and Education Center campus operations office raised the nation’s state flags along Briscoe Drive here in East Tennessee this morning, May 30, 2019, in preparations for an Airman Leadership School graduation and a change-of-command ceremony.

Campus operations raise the flags for special events. They fold and store the flags on regular duty days, which helps increase their longevity.

Happy Patriots’ Day this week!
