The Air Force recently changed its annual suicide prevention training from a computer-based (CBT) course to face-to-face training. The new, in-person training, which went into effect Feb. 11, 2015, replaces the annual computer-based training for active-duty and Reserve Airmen, while civilians have the option to attend the face-to-face training or complete the CBT. The goal is to have all Airmen attend face-to-face training by the end of 2015. The face-to-face training will be an annual mandatory requirement. The new training is outlined in detail in the Suicide Prevention Training Facilitator Manual. All training, including the facilitator manual and training videos, can be accessed visiting the Wingman Online website at wingmanonline.org/Home.
